STELLA is a three-man comedy troupe from New York City, comprised of well-known comedians/actors Michael Showalter, David Wain, and Michael Ian Black. Though the three have made a living performing at comedy clubs, they are perhaps best known for their home-made short films. The STELLA SHORTS have garnered cult success because of their nonsensical plotlines, absurd dialogue, graphic sexual humor, sporatic violence, and sheer hilarity. This DVD showcases the trio's first twenty-three adventures, each one more bizarre and hysterical than the last. Highlights include: a game of whiffleball that goes terribly awry, an expedition to the South Pole (?) to meet Santa Claus, an edge-of-your-seat moustache-growing contest, a twisted "whodunit"-style murder mystery, and much, much more.

Did You Know?
The shorts were originally filmed as part of Stella's stage show. The idea behind the early shorts was that the shorts had taken place a few hours before the show, and that was the reason the group appears dressed in suits in the shorts. In fact, the suits they wore in the shorts were to match the suits they wore during their stage act. See more

I don't even wanna hear it, David. (Michael proceeds to savagely beat David with everyone else joining in)
