Jim Thorpe feature on Comedy Central Tuesday
The Olympian Jim Thorpe will be featured again on Comedy Central’s “Drunk History” at 9 p.m. Tuesday.
“Drunk History” is a Comedy Central TV show where an inebriated narrator recounts a historical event while actors act out the narration and lip sync to the sloshed speaker.
The show from Season 2 is narrated by a tipsy Preston Flagg and tells the story of Jim Thorpe from his athletic start at Carlisle High School through his victory at the Stockholm Olympics in 1912.
In this episode, Jim Thorpe is named the greatest athlete of the 20th century, Babe Didrikson breaks down gender barriers in sports, and Jim Abbott achieves prominence as a pitcher despite having only one hand. Featuring Jason Momoa, Zach Gilford and Emily Deschanel.
