Michael and Michael

Executive produced by Black, Showalter, Jim Biederman ("Whitest Kids U Know," "I'm With Busey") and Lou Wallach, "Michael and Michael Have Issues" stars Black and Showalter in a new twist on narrative and sketch comedies that features the long-time comedic partners as the hosts of their own fictitious sketch show. Sketches will be interspersed throughout the narrative thread of each episode."
Michael and Michael is a new show that premieres on Comedy Central on July 15th. That same night, the State/Stella veterans "will perform comedy sets leading up to the live broadcast of the show" at The Bell House in Brooklyn! Tickets are on sale.

Last Thursday, M&M shot "a theater scene in front of a live audience". Videos below...

Jim Biederman ("Whitest Kids U Know," "I'm With Busey")

Yikes. I watched an episode of the Whitest Kids once and it was one of the worst things I've ever seen in my life. I'd rather watch a 24 hour Webster marathon than sit through 10 minutes of that again.

I wonder if Showalter will do the same stand-up bit's he's been doing for the past 3 years in a row?

Michael Ian Black is the hottest piece I know.

These guys aren't funny, never have been, never will be. Stella sucks a huge one.

The state was funny. The new show Stella is not whatsoever.

Stella is my favorite show. I hope this is just as good without david wain

showalter is one of the funniest live performers out there... his indie comedy is up there with other greats like zach galifiankis and daniel tosh-- two great comedians who are getting the right kind of attention. finally.

i feel like talent and opportunity are wasted on you new yok hipster, trash-talking, ask-mom-and-dad-for-money, i'm-the-shit-cos-i-diss-everything, twat stains.

showalter, black, tosh, galifiankis- come to dc or baltimore where you would be fkn appreciated.

bv, suck my long, left nut.

^so true.

Michael Showalter can be funny but it's true he sticks to the same routine. As do most comedians

Stella is definitely a required taste, and by that I mean if you don't like Stella that probably means you're an idiot.

The State was funny. These two guys are just trustafarian idiots. Not that funny and not worth the effort.

Can Showalter base a whole post-State career on just the NYU kiddies who have him in a class and are guilted into going to a show? Apparently, yes!

These two fellows have never made me laugh. Michael Ian Black needs to stick to his day job, which is making semi-funny comments on "I Love the 80s Strike Back."

Posted by John Stamos | July 26, 2009 2:00 PM

They were in The State. Thus, they get a pass for hit-and-miss recent efforts.

that portion of that last song was better than the other two combined.
eh... seeing Built to Spill that day, anyways
