Trivia

The Rockin' Knights of Summer was the name of a band that David Wain put together in 1989. They performed at various summer camps across New England, playing cover songs in exchange for three hundred dollars, breakfast and dinner, and a place to sleep (though this most often was a spot on the floor somewhere).

Everything you would expect from Wet Hot American Summer and more
9 August 2015 | by david-m-b95See all my reviews

Crazy? Check.

Stupid? Check.

Nonsensical? Check.

Hilarious? Check.

But did you expect anything less from a Wet Hot American Summer prequel?

Fans of David Wain's 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer will be jumping for joy at this show. The humour is much the same yet somehow manages to become even more random with some of the craziest subplots I think I may have ever seen, however it is all consistently funny and had me laughing non- stop. But above all the show is incredibly meta, a tough job done well!

Seeing the cast of the original return for this was a real joy to behold. The likes of Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler effortlessly slip back into their roles and seem to pick up right where they left off in 2001, seeing how these actors have hit the big time with their careers only heightens the hilarity of seeing them return to their roles 15 years on, the meta aspect of this being a prequel series with the older actors only adds in to make the mere concept of the show even funnier.

However seeing the likes of Janeane Garofalo, Michael Showalter, Zak Orth, Michael Ian Black and Christopher Meloni reprising their roles is also a real joy to behold, especially given that they may not have had careers that reached the same heights as Rudd and Cooper. And you can tell that they are all having a blast!

The rest of the cast is simply hilarious with a whole host of big, new names joining the show furthering the meta aspect of the show. New additions include Randall Park, Jason Schwartzman, Michael Cera, John Hamm, Lake Bell, Kirsten Wiig, Weird Al and Chris Pine among others.

But in the midst of all this hilarity, just when you think that it can't get any funnier, something dawns on you...

All these events are happening over the course of one day.

One day.

The only downside to this show is that there are only 8 episodes, we need more!!!

For fans of the original, this will not disappoint.

For new Wet Hot American Summer viewers, welcome to the chaotic comedy that is Wet Hot American Summer.
