Comedy Central picks up new show from ‘Wokaholics’ star

 
One of the stars of Comedy Central’s hit show ‘Wokaholics’ is getting his own series, Adam Devine will lead ‘Adam Devine’s House Party’ later this year.
 
The show will be a sort of stand-up series/sketch show, Comedy Central has ordered eight episodes of the series so far. The content featured will be a variation of stand-up acts and sketches from 24 of Devine’s favorite new comedians. Comedy Central’s original programming president Kent Alterman stated, “It’s hard to imagine what could go wrong by giving Adam so much money and turning him loose in a mansion to throw a house party, but we are sure to find out.”
 
Devine seemed surprise about the network’s decision to greenlight his project stating, “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.”
 
The show is called House Party because it will take place in the backyard of Devine’s mansion. Currently the actor has seen terrific success as as Adam DeMamp on Workaholics. Since then he has appeared in the film “Pitch Perfect” and will be in an episode of “Arrested Development” set to debut on Netflix
