Nightlife Michael Ian Black & Michael Showalter Tonight

Two-thirds of Stella will be performing at Neumo’s tonight. Here’s what I said in this week’s Up & Comings:
MICHAEL IAN BLACK AND MICHAEL SHOWALTER
(Neumo’s) Technically this isn’t a rock show, but it sure as hell will rock. God that’s a terrible intro. I’m really sorry. I’m under a lot of pressure here! It’s really hard to write about two of the funniest men in America (as voted by me) without (a) using their own jokes as examples and ruining them, (b) coming off like a fangirl with a ridiculous grade-school crush on the class clown, or (c) making them sound not funny at all by desperately insisting they are. But I swear to Christ Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter, two-thirds of the dildo-obsessed comedy troupe Stella, are hilarious. Their exaggerated facial expressions alone make me nearly piss my pants, and Black’s deadpan delivery only makes Showalter’s self-deprecation and giddy desire to be loved that much funnier.

And while we’re talking about Stella, here’s one of my favorite shorts (NSFW):
Yup, that’s Paul Rudd.
