      David Wain

      David Wain

      Highest Rated: 87% The Bob's Burgers Movie (2022)

      Lowest Rated: 33% Fun Mom Dinner (2017)

      Birthday: Aug 1, 1969

      Birthplace: Shaker Heights, Ohio, USA

      David Wain made a career out of operating on both sides of the comedy spectrum, switching from intelligent absurdity to mainstream films with heart. With an impressive list of both feature films such as "Role Models" (2008) and alternative comedy series like "Stella" (2005), he managed to infuse his singular style into all of his creative output. As a writer, director, actor and comedian, Wain permanently earned his cult status in the annals of comedy history with the short-lived but beloved sketch show, "The State" (MTV, 1993-95). Although the show only lasted for three seasons, it was hugely influential and successfully launched the careers of its cast-members, including Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, Ken Marino, Thomas Lennon and Kerry Kinney. Named after the 11-person comedy troupe of the same name, the show was in the same vein of earlier progressive comedy shows like "Monty Python's Flying Circus" (BBC 1969-74), featuring fast-paced irreverent sketches that lampooned popular culture and featured a large array of characters and self-referential routines. While it was not an immediate success, the show became a genuine cult sensation name-checked by comedy nerds and critics alike. Wain's ongoing success with films like "Wet Hot American Summer" (2001) made him a major figure on the 21st century comedy scene.
