It became a credo during "The Future is Gnar". After Production Designer Gary Kordan read some early story documents for the season finale, he started sketching proposals for a war torn future; set in the TelAmeriCorp office.
Then it had to become a reality. How would we turn a normal office set into a cut scene from a video game? The answer turned out to be hard work, and Set Decorator Julie Drach lead her team to their best work of the season, if not the series.
The Art Department of Workaholics made the future gnar. I’d list them all by name here, but I wouldn’t want to leave anyone out, and a lot of their last names are hard to spell, but sincerely, Art-D, thank you. The episode would have looked like the TelAmeriCorp cleaning staff had gone on strike (episode idea?) without you.
Tomorrow on the Tumblr we’ll talk about some other Crew heroes, specifically how the Costume and Make Up Departments made you believe Alice could lose her head.
His bum was on the set. His bum was on the set!
Look at him!
His bum was on the set!
Special thanks to Tom Green for his great guest appearance in "The Future is Gnar".
It was a pleasure to have him and who knows? He could one day find himself back in the TelAmeriCorp office. Maybe in the flesh. Without a crazy laser sword shooting out of his arm. Or a faceplate. Just Tom Green. Just what Adam, Blake and Ders would need to make the present… not gnar.
Mild-mannered Maribeth Monroe blocks a scene from "Webcam Girl" while slowly making the transition into All-Ice Alice.
Then she wardrobed up, and this happened:
"Fourth and Inches" played as a Workaholics’ ode to "Friday Night Lights".
More like "Guy-day Night Lights".
Or even "Friday Night Lights-Out".
Maybe “Fries May Excite?”
I’m sorry. That last one really has nothing to do with football.
"Alice Quits" had a memorable open where Adam, Blake, and Ders rolled up on Waymond with air soft guns-a-blazing. But there was more suffering the office’s favorite chatterbox had to suffer before the day was done, which was sadly cut for time.
In a Workaholics Tumblr Exclusive, the photo above shows the final insult for Mr. Womano.
We hope you enjoy the aptly titled: "In which Ders roundhouse kicks Waymond’s sandwich”.
We’re happy to report no Waymonds were injured in the kicking of said sandwich.
See what food flies in an all-new Workaholics, Wednesday night at 10/9 CT, only on Comedy Central.
How’d you sleep this weekend after "A TelAmerican Horror Story" got up inside your brain? Ready for Monday?
Probably want to take that tape off your eyes first. Well, stop the knife fans, that should be first, THEN remove the tape from your eyes. The lettuce, you do with that as you see fit, it’s your diet.
But you know what’s *really* scary? A new boss.
On Wednesday, January 30th, at 10/9 CT, see what happens when ”Alice Quits”. Only on Comedy Central.
It’s 3 miles to the hospital, we got just over “E” as far as gas goes, Adam strapped to the roof, it’s pretty bright because of the #SuperMoon… and we’re not wearing sunglasses.
Let’s yank it.
MTV News* caught up with Ders on set last year to get a “Tricked Out” Tour of everyone’s favorite fictional Swedish automobile, THE VO.
*Yes, I’m thinking it too— must have been a slow news day… if they were able to catch up with that beat box! BLAMMO! I ain’t saying the Vo is slow, but it moves about as fast as a Desktop computer trying to load the director’s cut of Das Boot!
A lot of shows would use walkie talkies to communicate with actors shooting a scene from a high vantage point.
Or you could just yell up. That’s worked pretty well for us so far.
The dudes chat with Director Kyle Newacheck (who some people still don’t know also plays Karl) about a scene in an upcoming episode for Season 3B.
Or whatever’s on those small pieces of paper. Could be menus. Or Christmas cards. Either way I bet they’re hilarious. Wait. I know they’re hilarious.
