In an effort to capitalize on the massive success of Workaholics, Comedy Central has given the series standout star Adam Devine his own show. Dubbed Adam Devine’s House Party, the actor will host a stand-up comedy and sketch series featuring Devine’s favorite comedians— 24 in total. The twist is all about location, location, location. Each episode will feature three comics performing stand-up in the backyard of Devine’s mansion, which, it seems, is a prop.
“I don’t know how I convinced Comedy Central to give me another show, a Hollywood mansion and a paycheck for hanging out with my friends. I hope they have a good lawyer and the fire department on speed dial,” Devine says, who also tweeted, “The owners of the house won’t let us supply booze… But we’re not frisking. Know what I mean?”
Comedy Central will start airing eight episodes of Adam Devine’s House Party this Fall, which begs the question: Does this spell the end for John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show? Probably.
