The Writers

The first half of season 3 is now complete until January and the show has seen a total of 12 credited writers in its 30 episodes so far. The show is not completely based on the ”Workaholics” real life, but rather an exaggerated reality with what the guys might actually do, or say, if they were to be put in these ridiculous situations. With 4 of these 12 writers actually playing main roles in the show, it’s no secret that these guys have a lot fun working on their own project. Just take a look at Adam…

I’m going to try to break this down in the simplest way possible so let’s try this out.

Since day 1 and the show’s pilot, cleverly named “Piss & S**t”, the group of 6 writers, as well as executive producers, has consisted of:

Anders Holm

The first thing you should know is that Anders, Adam, and Blake didn’t change their names for the show, with the exception of a minor change in their last name. With that being said, Anders Holm (playing Anders Holmvik) has acted and written for the show as well as doing both for the three’s sketch comedy group called “Mail Order Comedy”.  Check it out:

He has also appeared in several other TV series such as The One ‘N Done, Key and Peele, and Traffic Light.

Adam Devine

Playing Adam Demamp, he also has written for the show as well as writing/acting for “Mail Order Comedy”.  He also landed a role in the comedy musical film “Pitch Perfect” due out Oct. 5 this year.

Blake Anderson

Playing Blake Henderson, he has written/acted in both Workaholics and “Mail Order Comedy”.  He also is the voice of Dagda in the 3D animated film “Epic” due out May 24, 2013.

Kyle Newacheck

Playing the guys’ drug dealer Karl in the show, he is also the director of the show. He has also been a writer/producer/director for several other smaller projects including the groups’ “Mail Order Comedy”.

Dominic Russo & Connor Pritchard

Russo and Pritchard have been a writers and producers for both Workaholics and the TV series short 5th Year.

Here’s a link to an interview from July talking to the cast about being the writers, actors, and producers for the show:

  1. Hilarious show! I’ve seen every episode of the first season at least like 5 times. I haven’t seen much of the second season. I need to get back into it. I always found it awesome too that the writers are the actors, or vise versa, how ever you want to take it. That is just awesome.

    What i noticed though is that due to the popularity of the show, there have been “spinoffs” (like I think it’s called the Water Cooler?). I don’t know if it is funny, but I really hope they don’t milk the show and ruin what it was. Comedy Central has been good about this though, let’s hope they don’t take a turn.

  2. I do not like this show. In fact, I will immediately hunt for the remote to change to channel to anything, ANYTHING else, regardless of what I might currently be occupied with. The only other show I do this for is South Park. I am surprised to see it has that many writers credited, as it seems like the actors just make up whatever they like on the spot after a heavy night of drinking and falling down stairs, hitting their heads on each one. The niche audience that this show is intended for obviously does not include me, but at least it is surviving with what it can get.
