During the eight-episode season, viewers will find out what happens behind the scenes when Devine is given a massive party budget and free reign of an LA mansion. Naturally, things get a little crazy as some of Devine's favorite up-and-coming comedians stop by to enjoy the party and perform stand-up sets on the incredible backyard stage. In the premiere, titled "Ex-Girlfriend" and featuring Ahmed Bharoocha, Andrew Santino, and Barry Rothbart, Adam makes a fool of himself as he tries to impress his former flame who shows up to the party on Andrew's arm.

Every great party needs a great soundtrack, during the season both Trash Talk and Palma Violets will stop by to play for the party guests.

Also joining the party are Betsy Sodaro and Jon Gabrus, in the CC: Studios web series "House Party Crashers." Filmed simultaneously with "House Party," "House Party Crashers" features Sodaro and Gabrus as overeager partygoers that are determined to help Devine throw the party of the year, whether he wants their help or not.
