    Had this exam on Friday so it's too late now... But, they are there as comic foils to Antonio and Sebastian. They are part of the sub-plot which parallels the main action of the play, thus acting as a subtle critique of romance. The plot to kill Prosperous mirrors the plot the kill Antonio, while Stephano's alcoholic "spirits" mirror Prospero's magical ones.

    I hope you didn't already have this exam, but you probably did. Basically, what platopus said. Note that this can also be seen as a method of critiquing and ridiculing the (quite literally) cut-throat nature of government in Shakespeare's time by reducing it to something more base and laughable
