NEW YORK, June 14, 2012 – Break out the eggnog and gather up your friends, it’s the “Workaholics’” special time of year again…Half-Christmas! Co-workers and roommates “Adam,” “Blake” and “Ders” are celebrating their favorite holiday on-air and online in the days leading up to Monday, June 25.
COMEDY CENTRAL is enlisting the fans of “Workaholics” to help spread the half-holiday cheer! Fans can visit the official “Workaholics” Tumblr (workaholics.tumblr.com) for a “6 Days of Half-Xmas” party prep guide, complete with holiday drink and food recipes, decorating and craft ideas, ideas on what to wear, tips on how to celebrate in the workplace, and more. As the holiday nears, fans can use the “invitation generator” on the show’s Web site to send a “Workaholics”-themed Half-Xmas party invite to their friends. And on June 25, Half-Christmas Day, show fans can share in the larger celebration by posting their party photos to Instagram and tagging them #halfxmas. A custom area of the “Workaholics” Facebook page will pull together all Instagrammed photos in one place for all to see. Viewers can also participate in the on-air “Find the Hash” stunt where fans must search for hidden hashtags inside the “The Strike” episode and tweet for a chance to win Half-Xmas presents.

From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, "Workaholics" is a single-camera comedy featuring three friends who work together from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7. Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to. They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day…even if they don’t know what day it is. Whether it’s Blake (Blake Anderson) dressed in a bear coat, Adam (Adam Devine) singing about Catherine Zeta Jones while high on mushrooms or The Ders (Anders Holm) celebrating his birthday with a drinking triathlon, the boys always seem to run into trouble wherever they go.
The "Workaholics" Web site features a wealth of video content including a limited run Web series, “Workaholics: The Other Cubicle,” featuring favorite cubicle neighbors “Montez,” “Waymond” and “Jet Set”! The site also features show clips, exclusive video, cast interviews and behind-the-scenes action. The guys are active on Twitter (@UncleBlazer, @ADAMDEVINE, @ders808, @kylenewacheck), live tweeting each week on show nights. The "Workaholics" Facebook page is updated daily throughout the season and fans can follow the show’s tumblr at workaholics.tumblr.com, featuring exclusive photos, videos and updates. In addition, mobile will feature a WAP site loaded with video content and periodic SMS challenges.
“Workaholics” was co-created by Mail Order Comedy's Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck and 5th Year’s Dominic Russo and Connor Pritchard. The series stars Anderson, Devine and Holm and is directed by Newacheck. Executive Producers include Mail Order Comedy, Kevin Etten, 5th Year's Russo and Pritchard, Avalon Television's Richard Allen-Turner, David Martin, Jon Thoday and Isaac Horne, as well as Gigapix Studios David Pritchard.
