Raleigh native Evan Rachel Wood makes a return appearance on the hilarious Comedy Central series “Drunk History” tonight, this time portraying author Mary Shelley in a story about Frankenstein.

For the uninitiated, “Drunk History” features funny people — typically comedians, comedy writers and actors — getting absolutely sloshed and then telling a story from history to host Derek Waters, who drinks along with them. The narration is inter-cut with scenes in which famous actors act out whatever the person is saying, no matter how ridiculous.

Wood was on the show last season playing Revolutionary War veteran Deborah Sampson in the “Heroines” episode.

In Tuesday’s Frankenstein episode (officially titled “Are You Afraid of the Drunk?”), Wood will “lip synch” the drunken narration of comedian Rich Fulcher. She appears in the Shelley story with Seth Rogen and Will Ferrell. You can see her around the 48 second mark in the Season 6 teaser below.

Wood is the daughter of Raleigh actor Ira David Wood III.

“Drunk History” airs at 10 p.m. Tuesdays on Comedy Central.
