The premise of the show is that, in each episode, DeVine is hosting a party at which three stand-up comedians perform. 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] Only the first season truly involved a house party. The first season was set at, and filmed in, a house in Los Angeles; the second season was set at and filmed in a bar in New Orleans;[1] and the third season was set at and filmed at the Turtle Bay Resort in Oahu, Hawaii.[4]

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 was never invited.[5]

ProductionEdit

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.[6]

The show's scripted scenes are written by DeVine and Scotty Landes.[5] 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.[5]

Many of the comedians who perform are friends of DeVine's from his own stand-up comedy career.[6]
