A boisterous, self-proclaimed "Russian princess," Stella is a wife, mother and domestic diva whose eccentric home life inspires her high-energy comedy performances.
She was born in Lvov, Russia and moved to Brooklyn when she was three years old, ultimately deciding to be a comic because she says she "couldn't afford to see a therapist and this was my way of getting it all out!"
"Nothing and no one is off limits in my comedy," adds the frenetically funny comedian, who is now pregnant with her second child due in June. She pokes fun at her husband and daughter, her "crazy Russian relatives" and even herself - "a desperately-trying-to-stay-hip-housewife stuck in suburbia."
Stella was highlighted in the "New Faces" showcase at the prestigious New York Underground Comedy Festival, and recently made her Las Vegas debut with sell-out weeklong performances. She is currently a regular at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, where she hosts her own celebrity-filled comedy night called "Friday Night Live," with all-star guests like Robin Williams, Bob Saget and Dave Chappelle. She is also one of the producers of "Hot Tamales Live," an all-female comedy show that celebrates women and diversity and is held at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
A big fan of the show in seasons past, Stella wanted to be on "Last Comic Standing" for the "free craft services food."
