3 Rounds With ''Workaholics''

The title of their show is meant to be ironic—or at the least a portmanteau of ”working” and ”alcoholics”—but the three stars of Comedy Central’s Workaholics show up late at night and sober, having just pulled a double shift. We’re on the patio of Hollywood’s Black bar, and the boys are relaxing after a grueling day of shooting a fifth season, which premiered Jan. 14. Adam DeVine, 31, Blake Anderson, 30, and Anders Holm, 33, play Adam, Blake, and Anders: three inveterate bros who have mastered the art of underachievement. But these comedians aren’t slackers, pursuing individual careers with spots on shows such as Parks and Recreation and The Mindy Project and in films like Pitch Perfect and The Interview, all while working on an as-yet-untitled script with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. We grabbed beers with the guys—a drop in the bucket that is their livers—and talked about the same thing anyone ever talks about: work.
