David Wain made his first impression as an entertainer as part of a sketch comedy troupe, “The State” on MTV, in the early 1990s. Members of that group would go on to make “Wet Hot American Summer,” a 2001 film about summer camp.
The film bombed at the box office but subsequently became a cult favorite. Wain and his comedy colleagues have continued this streak with a number of other films and TV shows, including a new series on Netflix called “Medical Police.”
David Wain’s father, Norman, started as a Cleveland disc jockey in the 1950s.
