NEW YORK, April 11, 2013 - Adam Devine, co-star of the hit COMEDY CENTRAL series "Workaholics," is taking the party to the next level as the channel has ordered eight episodes of a stand-up series, "Adam Devine's House Party," it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, COMEDY CENTRAL.

"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," said Alterman.

"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," said Devine. "I hope they have a good lawyer and the fire department on speed dial."

Combining stand-up and narrative sketches, " Adam Devine 's House Party" invites viewers inside Devine's Los Angeles mansion where each week three of his favorite up-and-coming comedians hang out at his massive house party and do stand-up in the backyard.
