Guys Will Do Anything For A Drink
Matt Walsh, star of Spike's new comedy, Players
Friday, February 26, 2010 17:03 GMTLOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) When a guy wants a drink, hell pretty much do anything to get one.
Matt Walsh, founder of the Upright Citizens Brigade, and Ian Roberts play two completely opposite brothers running a sports bar on Spikes new comedy series, Players.
The show is loosely based on Walshs five summers as a bartender in Chicago and maybe his own bar-hopping memories.
He and his pals used to quietly hide at their favorite bar during closing time and camp out all night, drinking for free. They never once got caught.
Roberts has an equally wacky bar story that proves just how far dudes will go for a drink.
His boozy friends once ran out of cash at a bar but still wanted more alcohol so they mopped up the liquor slop on the floor and poured it into shot glasses, calling the disgusting concoctions Bar Squeezing shots.
Players premieres Tuesday (Mar. 2) on Spike TV.
