2013 Viacom Media Networks Winter TCA Press Tour PanelsHe has had his share of the spotlight By Valerie Milano Pasadena, CA (Hollywood Today) 1/17/2013 – “We knew that about a week ago, but we are still very excited about it. It’s such a dream come true. Having come from just the Internet and now having Season 4 and 5 like happening.”  - Writer and Actor Adam Devine told Hollywood Today on the success of new hit comedy show, Workaholics. Making it’s debut on YouTube in March of 2010, the tongue in cheek videos, produced written and directed by the shows lead characters, were enough to convince Comedy Central executives to bring them into the network. The pilot aired just one year later and the rest is proverbial history. The first episode of their fourth Season aired last night on Comedy Central to a captive audience. The team is enjoying their success and have even ramped up their production with new equipment to bring a more polished look to their previously low budget project.” We got nicer cameras, a lot of that is that’s Kyle’s fault.” The technology upgrade may improve viewing quality, but likely it is the raw humor that exudes from the various situations the threesome encounter at work and home that keep viewers coming back for more. Blake, Adam and Anders, play themselves as recent college dropouts who live together as they transition into adulthood. The three are employed by telemarketing firm TelAmeriCorp where they are surrounded by a colorful group of coworkers who treat them as outcasts, pushing them further into their self concocted world of a washed up frat boy. The first episode of the Season four finds them prepping for company roast of a trusting colleague in between tokes in the break room and finding said colleague giving himself a little self satisfaction. Off the collar, off the wall, and supported by a wonderful cast, season five of Workaholics has just been secured as a definite. Comedy Central also rolled out the new hilariously funny Kroll Show last night. Featuring a shape shifting Nick Kroll who flows effortlessly from one character to the next, spoofing reality shows, dramas, after school specials and all in between. “The cupcakes look amazing..” says Nick Kroll in the character of Liz from the event and media firm PubLiZity. I mean, the last I checked men in drag have traditionally been pretty funny, but Kroll not only cleans up well, he embodies the persona of many of the women found on many of these socialite based reality series. “And then “PubLiZity” and the ensuing shows became housing for anything that resembled “Kardashians,” “The Real Housewives.” says Kroll. Other faces of Kroll include, Fabrice Fabrice, Chupacabra and his role as one of the Rich Dicks. Though he has had his share of the spotlight, having worked on productions like Chapelle’s Show and American Dad, but it is refreshing to see a talent such as this be given the opportunity to shine. And while the cast and crew of Workaholics may play slacker potheads on t.v., clearly they and Nick Kroll hold true to the term.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough folks
    are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came
    across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank you!
