Adam Devine is Throwing a Party: Comedy Central has ordered eight episodes of a new stand-up series staring Workaholics and Pitch Perfect star Adam Devine. The show, entitled Adam Devine’s House Party, will spotlight 24 of Devine’s favorite up-and-comng comedians and will combine stand-up and narrative sketches. House Party will be set inside Devine’s Los Angeles mansion where each week three of his favorite comedians hang out at his massive house party and do stand-up in the backyard.
