Anders Holm, Olympic Trials Post Analysis

Anders Holm once put it down in the pool, a 50 yard sprint-man who swam for Wisconsin. He swam DI and then made it big in Hollywood as the writer, producer and star of Comedy Central’s “Workaholics”.

Great intervieuw Mel !!!! so many discoveries for me in 10 days !

Anders, nice job injecting swimming into your mainstream show. I’m a fan. What do you think about taking it even further after the Olympics? Season 1’s “Muscle I’d Like to Flex” is a “Workaholics” classic and could be a good blueprint for what to go for: take Adam’s delusional narcissism into the sport swimming. Can you imagine Adam standing next to Grevers? This would be a good way to get some elite swimmers onto mainstream tv as well. Good luck!


As an 18-24 year old male, you’re welcome. (That’s nuts though, that’s an incredibly valuable demographic.) Love the show, jumped in about halfway through season one.

Moar of this, plz.
