The Workaholics story
Many people don't know that the guys from The Workaholics were part of an impromptu comedy group called Mail Order Comedy. All three of them: Adam , Blake and Anders , which are their real names, all did sketch comedy on YouTube before getting their own show.
The original website was Mail order Comedy, the url that's branded on all their original youtube videos, but is now redirected to The Workaholics show.
The Workaholics videos on YouTube
The comedians started on YouTube all the way back in 2006 right when YouTube, itself, got its first glimpse of mainstream fame. They made videos all the way through until 2009. And yes, the taste of their comedy was pretty much the same though not as polished as it is now on The Workaholics. They weren't known as The Workaholics then, but Mail Order Comedy.
The Workaholics original YouTube channels
They had two YouTube channels. Mail Order Comedy and Dungeon of the Nutsack (lol at that name).

Interestingly, their videos weren't super popular, but if you like The Workaholics you'll love watching them. Their videos are just reckless, but isn't that what makes The Workaholics so damn funny.
