President Show and Drunk History joining The Daily Show in making 2017 holiday specials

It’s barely November, but Comedy Central already is prepared to celebrate the Christmas spirit, and its sleigh ride into December and the New Year will include specials from Drunk History, The President Show and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Here are the details and promos:

Drunk History Christmas Special will air at 10 p.m. ET/PT Tuesday, Nov. 28, and feature Rob Corddry, Colin Hanks, Ken Marino and Chris Witaske. Creators Derek Waters and Jeremy Konner bring to life such iconic holiday scenes as George Washington crossing the Delaware River on Christmas Day, a look at the Charles Dickens Christmas classic A Christmas Carol and Teddy Roosevelt’s ban on Christmas trees in the White House. With drunken narrations from Craig Anstett, Rich Fulcher and Phil Hendrie.

I Came Up with Christmas: A President Show Christmas Hour-Long Holiday Special will make its debut at 10 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30. The 45th and final President of the United States (as portrayed brilliantly by Anthony Atamanuik) alongside the Vice President (played by Peter Grosz) as they celebrate the holiday with a cavalcade of friends old and new in a night of comedy, music, jingle bells, and dog whistles as they try to make this the whitest Christmas ever.

The Daily Show’s The Yearly Show 2017 Hour-Long Year-End Special, hosted by Trevor Noah will tape before a live audience Dec. 3 at the Gramercy Theater in New York City, and make its broadcast premiere on Monday, Dec. 18 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
