The clip comes from the Comedy Central show’s fifth season premiere on Tuesday nightwhich Deadline says got extremely good ratings, AMPAS!!!! In it, Haddish tells Drunk History host Derek Water the tale of Rose Valland, played by Busy Phillips, an assistant curator who aided in the recovery of a bunch of artwork stolen by the Nazis during World War II.
Sorry if that’s a basic and/or inaccurate summary of Ms. Valland’s life! This is the first I’m hearing about her! Wikipedia tells me Cate Blanchett played Rose Valland in that George Clooney movie I didn’t see called The Monuments Men, but I didn’t see the George Clooney movie called The Monuments Men. Why didn’t I see that movie? It had Cate Blanchett in it!! At least I got to see Drunk History’s retelling of her life starring Busy Phillips, who too, can command the wind, sir. I’ve heard.
