If you haven’t been watching Comedy Central’s hit show Workaholics, shame on you. (Well, if you haven’t been watching it due to the recent Direct TV/Viacom squabble, then you’re off the hook.)
Starring and written by Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, and Anders Holm of Mail Order Comedy fame, Workaholics follows the exploits of three friends who have recently graduated from college. Entering the work force for a telecommunication company, the trio continue with their college ways as they hilariously adjust to being grown-ups.
The show is The Office meets Animal House, with a little bit of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia thrown in for good measure. Whether the plot revolves around trying to pass a drug test, getting a handicap parking pass from an overweight cousin, or disguising themselves as high schoolers to get back a statue, the guys pretty much always end up acting like idiots.
Not only is Workaholics incredibly funny, but heavily influenced by music. In fact, you can check out an awesome top 30 album list here from Blake, Adam, and Anders. The guys even have their own hip-hop group called The Wizards, and their song “Straight Outta Mordor” was featured during the first season. Definitely good for fans of 90′s gangster rap, The Lord of the Rings, and ridiculous comedy.
The show has also featured a guest-appearance/music from the Black Keys, as well as a guest-appearance from Tyler, the Creator. Some other great songs from the past three seasons of the show have included Hudson Mohawke, Philadelphia Grand Jury, and the Disciplines.
