Wow! It’s really been 10 years since the release of the cult classic comedy Wet Hot American Summer? I remember hearing about this movie when I was just a young blogger, wait what was the internet back then?
Though the movie only reached cult status, it was the first movie written by folks from the classic MTV sketch comedy show The State and Viva Variety! and starred a large portion of the cast including Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenny, and David Wain. It also showcased other comedic talent like Amy Poehler, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, H. Jon Benjamin (he voiced a can of vegetables), and Elizabeth Banks. And if you believe everything IMDB says… an extra named Michael Cera.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the movie’s release, Ian Black, Wain, and Showalter, currently known as the comedy troupe Stella will host a 10th Anniversary bash at The Music Hall Of Williamsburg on July 26th. So it’s time to break out the short shorts and tank tops because we’re revisiting 1981.

Perhaps the best thing about this trailer is that you get to see who they considered top billing 10 years ago, a young Bradley Cooper running around at the 1:04 mark, and validation that Paul Rudd does not age.
