David Wain


David Wain was born and raised in Shaker Heights, Ohio. He met the other members of the comedy troupe The State while a film student at NYU, where he graduated from in 1991. As part of The State, he co-created and co-starred on their self-titled MTV sketch comedy show in the mid 90's. He then continued to work with his State partners on many other projects, beginning with Stella (2005), a nightclub show which then became a series of web shorts and a Comedy Central Series. His first film as co-writer and director was the indie summer camp comedy Wet Hot American Summer (2001). He has subsequently co-written and directed a total of five feature films, the most successful being Les grands frères (2008). He is executive producer of the Emmy award winning series Childrens Hospital (2008) as well as its spin-off Newsreaders (2013). He's also worked consistently over the years as an actor, including the recurring role of Rabbi Jewy McJewJew on "Childrens Hospital", a version of himself in his semi-autobiographical web series Wainy Days (2007), and as "Yaron" in the Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (2015).
