David Wain’s comedic pedigree is one of the most venerated of the Best Week Ever generation. A original member of The State and one third of the irreverent triumvirate of awesome that is Stella – the other two guys are Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter, who also stars in his own eponymous online series – Wain’s busied himself since last fall with bringing his brand of humor to the web in the form of awkward romantic hijinks on the MyDamnChannel series, Wainy Days.
Each installment documents David’s misadventures at finding a lady inside a zany world derived from classic American sitcoms whose conceits are impulsively butchered, debased, and exaggerated for the benefit of amusing an ADD-audience in love with non-sequitur. The script and premise are funny, but David’s acting is funnier. He exudes a “prepubescent glee at playing ‘himself,’ living a life of frustrated romance and absurd heartbreak in brownstone Brooklyn.”
To the delight of anyone who likes to laugh, a third six-episode season of the series launched today. It picks up right where the series left off, though David seems to have become desirable in the off-season.
I also caught up with David at the Red Carpet outside the Webby Film and Video Awards last week. He promised exciting, if disturbing revelations for the new Wainy Days season.
And if you want to ask David your own questions, video chat with him live at 10PM EST tonight on the MyDamnChannel Stickam Channel here.
