The Great Northeast

"Quite a storm brewin' outside -- the Nor'easter dontcha know."
With the Nor'easter blowing through New England today, I couldn't help but be reminded of a bit that comedy trio Stella used to do, or maybe still does if they ever continue to perform live.

While their Marx Brothers -esque Comedy Central.. uhh.. sitcom(?) wasn't a huge success, I still say that these guys are fucking comedic geniuses, and their live standup/"alternative comedy" show was just pure ace. Michael Ian Black gets most of the credit for his snarky comments about hip decades, but Michael Showalter and David Wain are equally as awesome.

Chances are, people reading this already know all of this. For those that don't, before they ever got their weekly show, they were touring the country, and even had their own Comedy Central special featuring a performance highlighting some of the best bits of their stage show. The particular bit that I couldn't get out of my mind today while trudging through torrential downpours and massive wind gusts is the following. Trust me, this is worth it. Enjoy.
