Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfettered: If Anders drinks enough he completely drops his faux-mature attitude and becomes a violent, immature version of himself the other boys call "The Ders".

** Bizarrely, any time Anders tries to accomplish something, he ends up turning into an over-confident A-Hole, and ''Blake'' becomes the only sane man... in that he's the one who supports just skipping out on the plan to go home and smoke weed.

* InSeriesNickname: "Ders." Anders is hardly ever called by his full name. There are a lot of these, Montez calls himself Monteezy, Blake is called "Uncle Blazer", "Blazer", "Blaze", and "Blazerian". Adam gives himself a lot of nicknames, with fake nickname middle names like "Killzone" "Topgun" and more. For one episode, Ders is called Blonders because he's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin blond.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: The meek and kind Jillian goes completely overboard if she's ever given even an iota of authority. When she was put in charge of snacks in the break room she locked everything down and distributed snacks individually (as in, individual grapes, or strictly counted numbers of chips).

ComedyCentral WorkCom following the exploits of three college graduates and extremely immature men, Adam, Anders, and Blake. The three all work at a telemarketing company, but they spend most of their time getting drunk, doing drugs, and pulling pranks.

The show was based on the [[WebOriginal Web Show]] ''5thyear'' and is generally described as a sort of SpiritualSuccessor to ''Film/OfficeSpace'', [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs but on drugs]]. It premiered on ComedyCentral on April 6, 2011, to a mixed-to-positive critical response.

* AffectionateParody/DeconstructiveParody: Of "Bro Comedy" in general. While the three leads each embody various aspects of typical bro comedy, they are clearly shown to be [[ManChild Man Children]] simply emulating what television and movies have told them is cool. Because of this, the series manages to both present the protagonists as fairly innocent and sympathetic while also lampooning the portrayal of masculinity in media.

* ShipTease: Blake and Jillian are a very weird example of this. Several episodes imply that they have crushes on each other, and the episode "Hungry Like The Wolfdog" features some ''very'' non-traditional WillTheyOrWontThey, but just as many episodes reveal that they actually make a ''terrible'' couple, with [[BewareTheNiceOnes Jillian]] suddenly becoming a gender-flipped AbusiveBoyfriend to the ExtremeDoormat Blake.

** Blake and Adam themselves, though mostly Blake.

** Blake and Adam themselves, though mostly Blake. Jillian as well, perhaps even moreso.



* CrazyCatLady: Jillian is a weird example. She has several cats and is regularly shown to be pretty unstable but her cats serve more as a way of emphasizing her complete lack of social life rather than being tied to her craziness.



* ShipTease: Seems to be heading this way with Blake and Jillian, especially after a very...non-traditional WillTheyOrWontThey plot in "Hungry Like the Wolfdog."
