A Funny Week Ahead

To wind down from Art Basel hecticness, we are happy to present two free events next week where you can just sit back and laugh…

Monday night, Movie Mondays presents STELLA SHORTS!  From our good friend Jason of Model Citizens who set this screening up:

“Dumb comedy dressed up in a suit!”  The Stella Shorts are a collection of short homemade sketch-comedy films that were written, produced, and starred Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain of the comedy group The State (along with guest actors such as Paul Rudd, Sam Rockwell, Janeane Garafallo, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, and more).  The short films were originally shown at the group’s live stage show at the Fez nightclub in New York from 1998 to 2004 and contain the raunchy humor which spawned the Stella television show (that ran for one season on Comedy Central in 2005).  Come check out this rare screening of irreverant, chaotic, silly comedy.

AND, what is possibly the coolest thing ever, the guys caught wind that we were screening their stuff and sent along a personalized message for us to watch before the screening!  It’s the next best thing to having Michael Ian Black shout you out on Twitter.

Then Tuesday night, buckle up for the last CASA DE HA-HA of 2009!  For over a year now Sweat has played host to some of South Florida’s absolute finest comedians and this second Tuesday is no different!  Host Daniel Reskin brings known and unknown comics from the local scene to the Sweat stage.  No cover and no drink minimums so we hope to see you out!


P.S. Speaking of funny, the South Beach Comedy Festival is just around the corner!  Visit their site for the whole awesome lineup.
