An Interview with ‘Workaholics’ Adam DeVine
Tonight Comedy Central is premiering “Workaholics” – a show we’re rather excited about. Mainly because we feel like the guys the trailers portray, and it looks funny.
In anticipation of the show, Adam DeVine, who plays ‘Adam’ on the show, answered some of our questions about his own work history and what we can expect from this office comedy. Below the Q&A is a trailer for the show, which begins tonight, April 6 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
1) Have you ever had any cubicle jobs? If so, any horror stories? If not, what’s the secret?
Yeah, I used to sell steaks over the phone. I loved it. I found myself drinking the koolaid and becoming a maniac. I got three sales in a day and they gave me a hat that said “top gun”. I never took it off. Total douche move.
2) Based on what we’ve seen about ‘Workaholics’ — your characters are us. Why can’t we grow up? Why do we hate work so much?
Our generation’s parents coddled us. They told us we can be whatever we want. That we can be president. They lied, some of us are really dumb, but most of us are just smart enough to work in an office. Plus, being an adult blows and Nattie Light is dirt cheap and reminds us of a simpler time.
3) What’s the one thing that you’d never want your potential employer to know about you?
I will go out of my way to rob you. Your staplers will go missing and I will eat your yogurt. I don’t care whose name is written on it.
4) What do you do when you get that “2:30 feeling”?
I am a caffeine monstar. I will smash a lo-carb Monster while chewing energy gum. I have no respect for my heart.
5) Let us speak on behalf of everyone reading this: We need a raise. Have any tips?
Throw BBQs and call yourself the grill master. People LOVE that guy.
6) What are people going to be saying about ‘Workaholics’?
I hope people say “those guys are just like us”. My favorite comedies are usually ones I can relate to.
7) Am I going to watch ‘Workaholics’ and completely throw away any good standing I have at work?
Na, on the show we’re actually pretty good at our jobs. We are regular dudes who do just “good enough” so they can go home drink beers and arm wrestle each other.
