In this reel Matt talks with Jack Quaid, actor, writer & filmmaker about the cult classic 80’s film that was actually made in 2001, Wet Hot American Summer. Written by Michael Showalter and David Wain and directed by Wain. This throwback to the 80s, is a hilarious romp featuring an ensemble cast of mainstream and underground comedians. Actors from sketch powerhouses like Saturday Night Live, Stella and The State round out a cast that also includes, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd and Christopher Meloni. We discuss how this absurd slapstick comedy remains honest and that comedy is the only place where the death of kids due to camp counselor neglect is acceptable – and funny.
