Kristen Wiig plays Patty Hearst on Comedy Central's 'Drunk History' -- FIRST LOOK

Want to learn about our nation’s past in an unconventional way? Here’s a tipsy tip: Comedy Central’s Drunk History — which debuts July 9 and is based on the popular Funny or Die video series — features an intoxicated person telling the story of a “historical event” that is reenacted by a cast of celebrities like Winona Ryder, Michael Cera and Jack Black. In an August episode of the show, comedian Natasha Leggero gets liquored up and narrates the true tale of kidnapped heiress–turned–bank robber Patty Hearst.

And as you can see in the photos below, Kristen Wiig assumes the role of Hearst. “Kristen played it in a way that will bring light to such a dark story,” says Drunk History co-creator and host Derek Waters, adding: “When Natasha came to set, she didn’t know what was going on. We got the pretty identical set to what the SLA [the Symbionese Liberation Army, which kidnapped Hearst in 1974] had in San Francisco and she just sees Kristen Wiig talking to herself using Natasha’s drunk voice in a corner. It’s got to be the weirdest thing for them.”
