History of the World Part II live stream: preview

Forty-two years ago, Mel Brooks made History of the World Part I, and now, making good on that title's promise, he's finally made a sequel.

Brooks is something of a comedy legend, having made classics like The Producers, Spaceballs, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and too many more to mention in a career spanning seven decades. History of the World Part I was his retelling of the history of mankind, taking in everything from the Old Testament to the French Revolution with his trademark irreverence.

The Hulu sequel gives us more of the same, showing Shakespeare's writers' room, Judas betraying Jesus, Sigmund Freud teaching psychoanalysis, Galileo joining TikTok, and statues being toppled. Exhaustive, it isn't. Funny? Definitely.

That's largely thanks to the cast, which includes some of the best comedy talent from the past few decades, such as Danny DeVito, Johnny Knoxville, Wanda Sykes, Taika Waititi, Seth Rogen, Josh Gad, Kumail Nanjiani and JB Smoove. It's a testament to Brooks' stature that he's managed to recruit such a stellar cast, including those not usually known for their comedy work (David Duchovny and Emily Ratajkowski among them).

History of the World Part II is on Hulu in the US and is a Star Original on Disney Plus internationally. Remember: you can watch History of the World Part II from anywhere using a VPN.
