Life and career[edit]

Originally from Concord, California, Newacheck graduated from The Los Angeles Film School in 2004 with a degree in editing.[2] He worked as an editing teacher at his alma mater before forming the sketch-comedy group, Mail Order Comedy with Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine and Anders Holm in 2006. He began writing, directing and editing comedy short films with Mail Order Comedy, most notably the "Crossbows and Moustaches" web series for Myspace. [2] In 2011, Newacheck co-created Workaholics, a Comedy Central series now entering its fifth season, which revolves around three slackers and their drug dealer. Newacheck co-stars in the series as the drug dealer, 'Karl Hevacheck.'

Newacheck also directs most of the Workaholics episodes. He has since become a successful television comedy director, directing episodes of Community, Parks and Recreation, Happy Endings and others. He is currently set to direct an untitled TV movie written by Greg Daniels and Robert Padnick.
