Actors Michael Showalter and Michael Ian Black created — and star in — the Comedy Central series <em>Michael and Michael Have Issues.</em>

Comics Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter are the creators and stars of Michael and Michael Have Issues. The new Comedy Central series focuses on two neurotic sketch-comedy writers and co-hosts who can't stand each other.

Black and Showalter report that the show is only a "mild distortion" of their actual working relationship. The two comics also appeared together in the Comedy Central series Stella and on MTV's cult sketch comedy series The State.
