Flavorpill Says: Comedy For Change Feat. Stella

On The State, Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain were prominent members of a large troupe dedicated to pushing the boundaries of sketch comedy. Under the Stella moniker, they push those boundaries even further. When they're not harassing each other on stage, they're busy with short films in which they kick the crap out of themselves and others, take playground humor to a whole new level, and explore a strange obsession with humping dead bodies. Tonight, however, it's all for a good cause, as the suit-wearing trio use their gifts for offbeat humor to benefit Democratic campaign efforts. (8pm. $40 door / $30 online.
