Stella’s Michael Showalter Presents ‘The Making of…’

16 July 2010 12:11 PM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Over three years ago, on one of the first episodes of Stella's very own, The Michael Showalter Showalter, Showalter talks to the post-Dog-Bites-Man-pre-The-Hangover comedian about dipping tobacco and Fiona Apple. It's a silly conversation with a deadpan facade that's always on the verge of cracking should one of them get a case of the Jimmy Fallon giggles. With the help of CollegeHumor, Showalter went onto release nine more installments of The Michael Showalter Showalter, firmly establishing himself as a progenitor of the now very popular faux-comedian-talk-show genre of web series. But the last Showalter episode was released nine months ago, and a certain class of comedy nerds - the kids who, in the wild days before YouTube, bootlegged VHS copies of The State and followed the former MTV sketch troupe’s diaspora to Comedy Central shows like Viva Variety and Reno 911 - want to know what he's been up to since. »
