On Five Seasons of Buttholes with the 'Workaholics' Guys

Five seasons in, and there’s still no shortage of butthole jokes on Workaholics. You have to respect that commitment.

Whereas some comedies will shift gears over time and bring on new characters or other developments, Workaholics keeps it real. Week after week viewers are treated to the drunken antics of three slacker morons. They only thing that changes is the mischief they get into. It’s a formula that works so why mess with it?

I caught up with Workaholics stars Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson prior to their Season Five premiere. We talked about buttholes (of course), A-list guest stars, and their various solo projects.

Throwing a House Party with Adam Devine

Part sitcom, part standup showcase, Adam Devine’s House Party might be difficult to describe, but it’s a fun hybrid.

Mensch that he is, Devine created the show in part to give the up-and-coming comedians who perform on it a chance to display their acting chops. The show features short written scenes interspersed between standup sets, and for many of performers Adam Devine's House Party is their television debut.

Season one was set in a gaudy Los Angeles mansion, but in Season two the party has moved down to New Orleans for even more debauchery.

I recently had the chance to talk to Devine about the upcoming season, his love of [...]

Watch the 'Workaholics' Guys' Season 4 'Game of Thrones' Audition Reel

Now this is Game of Thrones as I understand it — incest, boobs, meat puns, fighting, boobs, characters named Dong Dangletaint — but I think the Workaholics crew really brings that feminism-awareness, anti-gratuitous nudity scene angle that the real series is incapable of pulling off. Plus those are some great puns.

Comedy Central Renews 'Adam DeVine's House Party' for Season 2

Comedy Central has renewed its newest standup show, Adam DeVine's House Party. The network has given a second season order to the series, which debuted on October 24th. The new season will be eight episodes and will premiere in 2014. Hosted by Workaholics star/co-creator Adam DeVine, House Party is a standup showcase with a narrative element that features three comedians each episode. "What’s cool about the new generation of standups is they’re making internet videos, and they’re doing improv, and a lot of them are, across the board, really funny people," DeVine told us in an interview last month. "I kind of wanted to do something that showcases their [...]

Talking to Adam DeVine About 'Workaholics', His New Show, and the Joys of Voicing a Cartoon Slice of Pizza

While one would think there's not much left for somebody to accomplish after popularizing the phrase “tight butthole,” Adam DeVine's career is only just getting started. After launching into the comedy spotlight on the hit Comedy Central sitcom Workaholics – which he co-created with fellow Mail Order Comedy members Blake Anderson, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck – DeVine has since landed roles on Community and Modern Family, appeared in a couple commercials, and had a memorable turn as egomaniac Bumper in the a capella musical comedy Pitch Perfect.

DeVine even managed to find enough time away from writing and filming the upcoming fourth season of Workaholics to host his [...]

The 'Workaholics' Guys Blow Stuff Up in the Uncensored Season 5 Trailer

Workaholics returns to Comedy Central for its fifth season January 14th, and Comedy Central released a new uncensored trailer that features the gang and a bloody-faced Jillian Bell getting into all sorts of epic trouble.

Watch Seth Rogen and Zac Efron Vibe It Out with the 'Workaholics' Guys

Here's a new clip from Workaholics, in which Seth Rogen and Zac Efron interview to become the guys' new cubicle neighbor (to promote their movie Neighbors because synergy). Rogen gets a little annoyed after Efron spends the whole interview sucking up, and unsurprisingly the winner gets chosen solely for their finest masculine physical attribute.

Talking to the 'Workaholics' Guys About the New Season

Since premiering in 2011, Workaholics has picked up more and more steam as one of today's most smartly written shows starring some of TV's dumbest characters. Beyond the writing though, the secret ingredient to Workaholics is the real-life friendship between creators/writers/directors/producers Adam DeVine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson – a chemistry that earned them a double-season renewal last year. Ahead of tonight's Season 4 premiere, we talked with the Workaholics gang about how their show has evolved, how they come up with fresh ideas, and their extended thoughts on Justin Bieber.

According to the report, Ben Stiller has signed on to appear in the third episode titled "Front Yard Wrestling" in the role of a landlord named Del.

Talking to Jillian Bell and Charlotte Newhouse About Their Comedy Central Web Series 'Idiotsitter'

Jillian Bell and Charlotte Newhouse’s Comedy Central web series Idiotsitter wraps up this week, with the series possibly seeing its odd couple of Gene, a super rich, under-house-arrest woman-child, and Billie, her uptight GED tutor, becoming friends, celebrating Gene getting her ankle monitor off, or burning down Gene’s mansion. The web series showcases Bell and Newhouse’s talents as writers and performers, adding to the two Groundlings’ growing credits. Bell and Newhouse sold a pitch of an arranged marriage comedy last year to MGM, and Bell has popped up in several high-profile comedies like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Bridesmaids, as well as in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master (apparently he’s [...]

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg Are Producing a Movie with the 'Workaholics' Guys

Seth Rogen's production company Point Grey is teaming up with legendary producer Scott Rudin to produce a movie that will star Workaholics' stars Anders Holm, Adam DeVine and Blake Anderson. Holm will write the script, and Workaholics co-creator and co-star Kyle Newachack will direct, but the film will be entirely unrelated to their Comedy Central show. Point Grey is made up of Rogen, his frequent co-writer Evan Goldberg and their producer partner James Weaver. Holm, DeVine, Anderson and Newachack have worked together for years as part of the sketch troupe Mail Order Comedy.

DeVine gave these details about the upcoming film to Splitsider a couple weeks ago:

Yeah, we’ve written a script that [...]
