SF Sketchfest and Mezzanine are thrilled to welcome back Stella with special guest comedians and live music. Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and David Wain have been writing, producing, and performing comedy together and apart for over twenty years. They helped create the sketch comedy troupe The State, which went on to a successful television run on MTV, and now each have successful solo careers as writers, directors and performers of comedy. Tonight’s show recalls the early “Nightclub” days of Stella, when they hosted a weekly showcase for alternative and mainstream comedy. The night will feature surprise guest comedians and music by John Vanderslice.
