From the creators of The Quiz Box comes a new comedy game show where a panel of comedians tells the most outrageous lies about historical events. Four brave comedians with a limited education in history will each attempt to fool their competition into believing lies about history, while simultaneously tricking them into thinking historical facts are fallacies. Each comedian is tasked with rewriting a real event from history (anything from the building of the Great Wall to the sinking of the Titanic) into a hilarious tall tale. The catch? Hidden between the lies are six real facts which they must attempt to sneak past their competitors. Will they be caught telling the truth? Come see if you can spot the real history within the hilarity. 

Preposterous History is hosted by Erik Tait and featuring panelists Dave Burkey, Sara Bucher Greer, Kevin Hendrix, and Nickey Winkelman.
