TV Series Premiere: Workaholics premieres on Comedy Central

The funny thing about blogging is that after a while your email is on a thousand different PR lists. Sometimes there's no rhyme or reason why a music blog would get certain emails. ("Hey, we have great sheepskin boots for half the price of Uggs. Can we send you a pair in exchange for a blog post?") Other times I think about random stuff I've written about and perhaps it makes sense.

I don't really tell you just how much TV I watch...since I'm generally out every night watching live music, my options are generally limited to late night (addicted to Chelsea Lately) and things I can find OnDemand and on Hulu, but I still seem to see plenty. Lately I've been catching up on shows and haven't really seen anything first run, which is why when I got an email from Comedy Central about their new show Workaholics, I was game. The show is scripted and hilarious. It's the brainchild of these dudes, Blake Anderson, Adam Devine and Anders Hol, who were filming sketch comedy for their YouTube Channel, Mail Order Comedy and eventually got enough attention that they got their own show.

I got a chance to watch the first three episodes and believe me, if you like stoner humor along with office humor, you're gonna like this show. Think Office Space and Grandma's Boy. The first episode is called "Piss and Shit" if that tells you anything, but the comedy is never forced, the dialog is hilarious, and the self-deprecation is endearing. The show makes it's debut tonight on Comedy Central, and if the first three episodes are any indication, these are guys you're gonna wanna see a lot more of. Guess I know who I'll be stalking at Comic-con. For more info on the show, click here.
