Adam DeVine's House Party is an American comedy television series on Comedy Central starring Adam DeVine that is part stand-up comedy show and part sitcom.[1] It premiered with an eight-episode season on October 24, 2013.[2] The second season began on September 9, 2014, before moving to its regular Thursday timeslot on September 11.[3]

The premise of the show is that, in each episode, DeVine is hosting a house party at which three stand-up comedians perform on a stage in the backyard. At the beginning and end of the show, as well as between sets, there are scripted scenes involving DeVine and, usually, the three comedians, revolving around some plot related to the party.[2] The first season was set at, and filmed in, a house in Los Angeles, while the second season is set at, and filmed in, a bar in New Orleans.[1]

In the first season, there was a recurring joke in which some or many of the partygoers leave early to attend a party at comedian Jeff Ross's house, to which DeVine is never invited.[4]

Production[edit]

The show was a longtime idea of DeVine's, based on house parties he had attended, as well as on the TV show The Larry Sanders Show, which was a hybrid of talk show and sitcom.[5]

The show's scripted scenes are written by DeVine and Scotty Landes.[4] Kyle Newacheck, DeVine's costar on Workaholics, is the co-creator of the show, as well as its director, and also occasionally appears onscreen as the director of the show-within-the-show.[4]

Many of the comedians who perform are friends of DeVine's from his own stand-up comedy career.[5]

The first season was filmed at a house in Chatsworth in Los Angeles, California that also served as Mike Tyson's house for the film The Hangover.[5] The second season was filmed at Bamboula's, a bar in New Orleans.
