Stella stars present: American Schmidol

american schmidol stellaIf you're lucky enough to live in New York City and have an unusual sense of humor, you will totally dig this. Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain are judging a parody of American Idol, called American Schmidol. They're teaming up with Heeb Magazine and JDUB Records for a "giant-screen karaoke competition" at the Bowery Ballroom on Monday, March 13. I can't figure out which one will be the Simon character. Any of them could pull it off.

If you're like me and you don't live in NYC, but you're missing Stella and you're wondering when it'll be back (Hello? Comedy Central?)*, you can get your David Wain fix on his website. He has put up a scan of an article in Tokion Magazine called "Writing Comedy", which features Wain and David Cross. Or, you can download the audio version of the interview here.

*Thanks to commenter, Matt, who pointed out that Stella is not getting a second season on Comedy Central (despite its title as one of the best TV shows of 2005 by EW magazine). The official Stella website confirms it.
