The History Channel debuted its late-night short-form comedy anthology, Night Class, last night with segments from “The Crossroads of History” and “Great Minds with Dan Harmon.”
The first “Crossroads” imagines the seminal moment when Adolf Hitler applied for and got rejected by art school in Vienna for the last time — before he entered politics and tried to simultaneously conquer the world and kill all the Jews. Before World War II and the Holocaust. Yeah, those things. Here’s Josh Fadem as a young Hitler, with Paul Scheer and Elizabeth Shapiro as the art school tribunal.
And in “Great Minds with Dan Harmon,” Harmon sits down with Ludwig van Beethoven (Jack Black).
Roll over, Beethoven!
