STELLA is a three-man comedy troupe from New York City, comprised of well-known comedians and 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 homemade 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" murder mystery, and much, much more.Written by

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 »
Hilarious and low-budget comedy at it's best. This set of unique individual sketches with extensive self-referential humor is reminiscent of a really raunchy Kids in the Hall. Be prepared for some of the most random and recitation worthy lines, filled with ethnic slurs and awful language. Sex toys included!
There should be more comedy like this around today. This collection of sketches on one DVD will warrant many viewings and reviewings in order to appreciate some of the parts. If you enjoyed The State and/or Wet Hot American Summer, get ready for some more glory. If you are even considering this for younger audiences I would say that every child on earth should see this.
