Come in from the hot summer sun and bask in the brilliance of David Wain and Michael Showalter's 2001 big screen debut at Thalia Hall's Wet Hot American Summer Campout! In anticipation of the forthcoming Netflix sequel series Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later, we will celebrate the absurd camp counselor culture initially centered around the final day at Camp Firewood in the summer of 1981. Picked up by the same stacked lineup of comedic actors nearly fifteen years later as an 8-part series elaborately depicting day one, the wet hot deadpan humor of this ongoing storyline has become a generational fixture not to be missed. Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Amy Poehler, H. Jon Benjamin, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks and Bradley Cooper are just a few of the many seasoned performers who can't wait to greet you at camp! Don't forget your sunscreen.
