Drunk History: 'How Burke and Hare ballsed it up!'

History lessons can sometimes be a bit dull, but just imagine how brilliant learning about Henry VIII or the Great Fire of London would have been if you'd had a drunk comedian for a teacher! 

Comedy Central's alcohol-sodden new show Drunk History (opens in new tab) continues this evening and we have a brand new clip from tonight's episode to kick start your Monday.

Watch Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell retelling the story of infamous murderers William Burke and William Hare, above - after drinking three bottles of champagne!

Drunk History continues on Mondays at 10pm on Comedy Central.
