David Wain

David Wain is the best. As much as I’d like to include flowery language about how great he is, I’m limited by a word count and I’d be remiss to leave out any of David’s awesome projects. So here goes: Wet Hot American Summer, The Ten, Role Models, the upcoming Wanderlust, The State, Stella (the T.V. show, live act, web shorts, and live DVD), Childrens Hospital, Wainy Days. Looks like I’ve got some words left, so here goes with the flowery language: David is the best. Really really great. Everything he’s done is awesome. Flowery enough?
