LOS ANGELES — A reporter, a photographer and a TV star walked into Max Karaoke Studio on Sawtelle Boulevard. The place didn’t serve alcohol, and so the reporter, who had booked a private room for the evening, had a pint bottle of whiskey concealed in a jacket pocket.

 

“I’ve been here before,” said Will Forte, 45, the star and co-creator of “The Last Man on Earth”, a postapocalyptic half-hour comedy on Fox. “My karaoke partner is always Jason Sudeikis, and we come here, to this very room. I can still smell him.”

 

The two friends, former “Saturday Night Live” cast members, play brothers on Mr. Forte’s show, which is now in its second season and returns Sunday, after a 12-week break. “Basically, the last year of my life has been waking up, going straight into work and then going home to bed,” Mr. Forte said.

 

Also present was David Noel, a writer on “The Last Man on Earth.” Mr. Noel’s fiancée, the model, actress and singer Alanna Vicente, stopped by with 10 cold cans of Asahi beer.
