The Terrific Michael Ian Black!

There are too many things to list that Michael Ian Black has done- but dammit, we'll try: he was a fouding member of the seminal sketch group The State- who enjoyed a fun run on MTV. He also starred and co-created the sketch/variery shows Viva Variety (MTV), Stella and Michael & Michael Have Issues (both Comedy central). He played a key role on NBC's beloved Ed. But above all, Michael is probably best known for his role in Wet Hot American Summer- a hit cult film that returns this summer as a series on Netflix.
