[[caption-width-right:323:(left to right) Adam, Anders, and Blake.]]
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.

Not to be confused with a {{Workaholic}}, which this show's main characters ''[[{{Irony}} definitely aren't]]''.

----
!!''Workaholics'' provides examples of the following tropes:
* AbhorrentAdmirer: Adam, to Alice. While he's not ugly, she loathes his personality.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Montez, the boys' co-worker. He has a Spanish surname, but acts stereotypically black. (JiveTurkey accent and all)
-->'''Blake''': He's black?
-->'''Adam''': There's no way to tell.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking:
-->'''Alice''': I'm gonna eat your balls for breakfast tomorrow, with my Grape Nuts. Then I'm gonna murder you. Then I'm gonna fire you.
** See TheStoner.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Ders' father is named [[NorseMythology Thor]]. Adam and Blake freak out when they hear.
* BerserkButton: Anders hates having his name mispronounced.
-->'"Anders"': It's Ahn-ders! I have an Ahn at the beginning of my name! I have a hard-ahn!
* BookEnds: "Teenage Mutant Ninja Roommates" starts and ends with the guys all arguing and yelling at each other at the same time, only to stop and share a few contented bites of food, at the beginning, it's pizza, then at the end, donuts.
* BrickJoke: A few.
** In "Straight Up Juggahos", the boys scheme to set Jillian up on a blind date with a man they found online, telling her he is a friend named Jake Heisenripbauer (a name they made up on the spot). At the very end of the episode, Jillian calls him by the said name, leaving us to assume that she's been calling him that the entire time and that she still doesn't know his real name.
** "Model Kombat" has Blake meeting a sports shop owner who lost nearly all his sight during the war when a piece of shrapnel hit him, but Blake mistakes his words for "pizza shrapnel." Later in the episode, Adam throws a pizza slice at Ders. Blake immediately yells at him, asking if they have any idea how many people go blind due to pizza shrapnel.
** In the cold open of "In the Line of Getting Fired", Adam says that he'd be willing to give head to a man for $900 (which he immediately recants). During the closing scene, Blake is being put into an ambulance after being shot and asks how much it will cost him since he doesn't have insurance. The paramedic says $900. Blake and Ders then tell Adam to put his money where his mouth is.
* ButtMonkey: Waymond-he's kind of the maligned sidekick to Montez, in the alternative trio of Montez, Waymond and Jetset.
** Really, all three of the main guys. They're shown to be woefully incompetent at almost everything they try.
* CatchPhrase: "Tight butthole/loose butthole" definitely comes to mind.
** Blake and calling people "dumb idiots."
** Adam and his "Oh I like that!"
* CelebrityResemblance: Blake is often called out on looking like Paula Poundstone.
** In another episode, to mock Der's supposed hair loss, Adam calls him Michael Chiklis.
* ChekhovsGun: In the episode "Real Time", while the guys are drinking on the roof in the beginning, Blake is playing with a laser pointer. He later uses it against the future chicks during the bike chase scene.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Blake and Adam's drug dealer and friend, Karl.
* ContinuityNod: Jillian mentions her cat Brent Hoffman dying in the season two episode "Man Trip". In "Fat Cuz" she tells Adam's fellow cat-loving cousin that it is the anniversary of Brent Hoffman's death.
** Another Jillian related one-in "Old man Ders," she mentions that she was adopted by a "horrible Korean family." In "Real Time," she answers the phone by saying 'yoboseyo', which is a Korean greeting.
* DeadpanSnarker: The boys' boss, Alice.
* DeliveryGuy: What the three chuckle-heads wind up as during "Orgazmo Birth".
* DependingOnTheWriter: The boys' level of immaturity, Jillian's intelligence, Alice's hostility, etc. often fluctuates between episodes.
* DontExplainTheJoke: When the boys pull a "Poop Dollar" prank on someone (they wrap a dollar around poop and then leave it on the ground for someone to pick up or step on), one of them shouts "See we poop in the dollar!" as the victim runs away. When it happens again, they all yell "POOP DOLLAR" as they drive away.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Blake was confused for Anders' wife by an older employee in "The Strike".
* FanService: Blake's striptease at the beginning of "Checkpoint Gnarly." Really, in any given episode there's a pretty good chance Blake will end up at least partially naked.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: [[http://i.imgur.com/QGKIW.jpg Alice has a framed picture of Kate Gosselin on her desk.]]
* {{Gorn}}: The episode "Friendship Anniversary" gets surprisingly violent as the guys [[spoiler:kill the rats infesting their house]].
* 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.]]
* InsistentTerminology: In one episode, the guys stop calling it weed and call it grass. Then by the end of the episode, when Carl also calls it grass, they say they're calling it dro now.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Alice is indeed a verbally abusive MeanBoss, and in the episode "Model Kombat" she outright tells Adam that she wouldn't care if he died. [[spoiler:Later that episode, she saves him from choking to death, and afterwards even grudgingly lets him hug her for a second]].
* KarmaHoudini: The high school kids in "Heist School," who crash the boys' home and party, and decapitate their beloved dragon statue. In the commentary, the guys even state that this was by far the least popular ending of an episode to date.
** They encounter the high school kids again in "Fourth and Inches," and they somewhat get even, but even then it's pretty much a PyrrhicVictory.
* LeeroyJenkins: Adam pulls a Leeroy out of his shroom fueled haze in the first season episode "Office Campout", ruining Blake and Ders' ridiculously childish plan and running straight at [[spoiler:who he thinks are burglars, but turn out to just be the tech guys coming into the office to do routine maintenance]]. He even shouts "Leeroy Jenkins!"
* ManChild: All of them, but mostly Blake.
* MeanBoss: Alice regularly insults her employees both passively and outright. She manages to avoid being a BadBoss, since she cares about doing a good job and never fires anyone without cause--she's just a very angry person.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: The drug tester gets ''reeeeally'' close to Adam when he's peeing into a cup.
* NonIndicativeName: The show is not about workaholics (though it does involve work and addictions).
* OnlySaneMan: Anders, to some extent. He seems to take his job a bit more seriously than Adam and Blake, and doesn't take drugs as much. But he still does them.
* PrecisionFStrike: Though there's plenty of cursing on the show, there aren't as many uses of the word fuck, but they do pop up from time to time. "Alice Quits" gives us two examples.
--> '''Travis''': Don't cause a scene, Alice!
--> '''Alice''': Oh, Fuck off Travis! And eat a dick. I quit!
** Later in the episode, Jet Set quits as well, combined with ThisIsForEmphasisBitch.
--> '''Travis''': Jessie, calm down.
--> '''Jet Set''': Bitch, my name is Jet Motha-fuckin Set! But you can call me Patric Swayze, cause guess what? I'm ghost.
* PrettyInMink: Blake's bear jacket. '''''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny "BITCH BETTA HAVE MY HONEY!"]]'''''
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Surprisingly, Alice, who has retained her staff (even Anders, Adam, and Blake) despite numerous emails from Corporate telling her to trim the dead weight.
* ReCut: The boys watch an edited-for-TV version of ''Film/DieHard'' with Blake's drug dealer and note the amusing replacement of "fuck" with "cluck."
* SarcasticTitle: You can almost hear the title saying "Yeah, reeaal workaholics, those guys."
* ShipTease: Seems to be heading this way with Blake and Jillian, especially after a very...non-traditional WillTheyOrWontThey plot in "Hungry Like the Wolfdog."
* ShoutOut:
** A drug tester in ThePilot calls Blake "StrawberryShortcake".
** The pilot also features several references to ''Film/DieHard'', complete with Blake crawling through the vents while paraphrasing a line from the movie.
** Again from the pilot, the kid in the playground that the boys try to get clean pee from calls Blake "[[Literature/HarryPotter Hermione]]".
** In the episode 'Temp-tress', Blake gives an impassioned (and poorly delivered) version of the Kurt Russel Speech from Miracle, talking about Montez, including the line 'I am sick of tired of hearing about what a good salesman Montez is.'
** In "Real Time" when rollerblading while chugging beers (and already still drunk from the night before), Adam climbs his way over a fence shouting "Kung-Fu!...Hustle!" The episode also references Speed, with Adam shouting "There's a bomb on the bus! If we go below fifty miles an hour, or don't go directly to TelAmeriCorp, we're gonna explode!" Also, the actor who plays the bus driver also played the bus driver in Speed.
** "Model Combat" contains an homage to Bloodsport with Adam blinding Blake with cigarette ashes before their fight. Blake calls upon advice from a blind man earlier in the episode and throws a punch at Adam anyway, only to [[RealityEnsues hit Jillian in the face and give her a bloody nose.]]
** In "Timechair", the guys exhange a number of video game shoutouts, comparing themselves to various MarioKart racers (Blake says he's Yoshi, Adam says he's Bowser, then Wario and Ders is happy to be Luigi), and then Blake says he's a Diddy Kong Racer. Ders says if there's changing games, he's Pierce Bronsan, 007.
** [[{{Entrapment}} Catherine Zeta Jones! She dips beneath lasers. Woooaaaooo.]]
** "The Promotion" has Adam and Blake pranking Ders by loosening his so that he yanks it out.
--> Adam: "Oh, what, are you gonna break on through to the other side? Jim Morrison? Music/TheDoors?"
* ShownTheirWork: It's unknown if there are any actual Music/InsaneClownPosse fans on the production staff, but they go surprisingly in-depth into the {{Juggalo}} subculture for the episode "Straight Up Juggahos", right down to having one of the Juggalettes dub Adam "Sugar Bear" (the name of Shaggy 2 Dope's character in ''Film/BigMoneyHustlas'') in one scene. Sure, they spend most of the episode ''mocking'' {{Juggalo}}s, but at least they got the details right.
* TheSlacker: Blake, Adam, (and Anders to a lesser extent).
* SmartBall: The guys are depicted as being fairly unintelligent, but in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Roommates" they manage to get themselves out of being stuck in a sewer through teamwork, use of this trope, and ChekhovsGun.
* SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace: When officiating Karl's wedding, Blake calls for objections before raising one himself.
* SpiritualSuccessor: Some reviewers describe it as this to ''OfficeSpace''.
* TheStoner: Though all three of the guys do drugs, Blake is the Most Triumphant Example of this trope.
** In ThePilot, a list of over a dozen drugs that are regularly in Blake's system are read aloud; among them include marijuana, birth control, cocaine, meth, and both Dayquil ''and'' Nyquil ("[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Why would anyone take both?]]")
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Subverted. While The three main characters are basically the annoying frat boys that come to your party uninvited, get really drunk, and fuck up your couch, they manage to be so inneffectual and pathetic while still showing heart every now and then that they actually become sympathetic.
* VitriolicBestBuds: The three guys all love each other, but they also get really mad at each other very often. Sometimes they go [[MoodWhiplash back and forth quickly]] like in "Timechair" when Ders and Blake get ready to joust. Blake lists off a past grievance of Ders stealing a chick from him, but Ders can't hear him. Blake quickly shrugs it off, saying its in the past, and the two joust with an air of just having (dangerous and reckless, of course).
* TheVoiceless: Waymond. Enforced-on an episode where Waymond was due to testify in court against the guys, they took action to push the court's affairs back a day, helping to ensure Waymond doesn't speak.
* WholeEpisodeFlashback: The episode "Flashback in the Day" takes place in 2007 and shows how the trio met in college.
