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.
