The “Drunk History” of the Fair Play Committee

We’ll have whatever Randall Park is drinking! “Drunk History” is a weekly, half-hour series on Comedy Central where historical reenactments by A-list talent are presented by inebriated storytellers.

On June 19, tune in for a wild and woozy retelling of the resistance of Frank Emi and the Heart Mountain Fair Play Committee. Now millions will know the name of the FPC and its battle cry: “No shikataganai!”

Thanks Comedy Central for getting most of it right. If anyone wants, we can update later with the parts that are, uh, a little off, but hey, “No shikataganai!”

For the real deal, get our DVD.

  1. I hate hamburgers lol. Well, uh, there’s some questionable spots but overall, Randall Park did a good job to publicize the Heart Mountain Fair Play Committee, although it was really Kiyoshi Okamoto, who started it. And Frank Emi in this segment looks more like Mike Masaoka, no? But thanks Randall!

    1. And of course, Frank Emi never received a draft notice and was not part of the mass trial of 63, but rather the later conspiracy trial of the 7 FPC leaders. What I found remarkable was the shout out to the little-known Frank Inouye, founder of the Congress of American Citizens and the precursor group to the FPC. Also, did you catch the sly throwaway of “oh hell no, no-no” in the voiceover?
