A native of Shaker Heights, David spent his childhood and teen years there, attending high school, and after matriculation he moved to New York City, and enrolled at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. While there, he met and befriended other members of the New Group comedy sketch group, including Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter. The New Group changed its name to The State, which resulted in a TV series, aired on MTV between 1993 and 2009, which increased David`s net worth and popularity. When they stopped writing and filming as The State, the trio formed a new comedy group called Stella, which also went on to be broadcast in 2005, further increasing David`s net worth.

David`s first full length film came out in 2001, entitled “Wet Hot American Summer”, which he also directed. Since then he has written and directed several successful films, including “The Ten” (2007), “Role Models” (2008) with Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks, “Wanderlust” (2012) with Jennifer Aniston and Malin Akerman, “They Came Together” (2014), and the TV series “Wainy Days” (2007-2011) and “Childrens Hospital” (2010-2016), all of which significantly increased his net worth.

David is also an accomplished actor; apart from appearing in his own films and TV series, he has taken various notable roles in such TV series and films as Spike Lee`s “Bamboozled” (2000) with Damon Wayans and Jada Pinkett Smith, “The Baxter” (2005), then Tom DiCillo`s “Delirious” (2006) starring Steve Buscemi, and in the TV series “Superjail!” (2007-2014), which all added further to his net worth.
Furthermore, since 2015 Wain has portrayed Albert Downsy Jr. in the TV series “Another Period” (2015-2016), and also appeared in Oz Rodriguez` “Brother Nature” (2016) with Taran Killam and Gillian Jacobs.

Thanks to his skills, David has received several prestigious awards, including three Primetime Emmy Awards for his comedy series “Childrens Hospital”, among many others.

Regarding his personal life, David married actress and producer Zandy Hartig in 2009; the couple has two children together, but divorced in 2015. His current residence is in Los Angeles, California.

1At MTV, the average age at the time of everybody there was like 24. So anyway, they were like, "You don't know what you're talking about," excepting that we went back that night and shot, like, three of these pieces on a Hi8 video camera. And then we, like, snuck into NYU and edited them with a little non-linear editing, and stole props from NYU and did these three pieces. Those pieces, as like a total spec demo overnight, ended up being on You Wrote It, You Watch It, and they hired us to do more. They hired us as a sketch group, and we insisted that we work entirely on our own; we didn't want to interact with the rest of the show. We had this incredible cockiness from day one, which, I think, really did serve us. Really from day one. We had worked with ourselves for four years before that, and we were like, "We're the best, we know what we're doing, nobody else does. Fuck the world." And so we had that attitude going in, and what we didn't realize is that all the executives at MTV were like 25, 28, so they thought, "Oh, I guess these guys really know what they're talking about." They put us in a room for about 13 weeks, paid us nothing, and gave us no budget, and said, "Here, you deal with all these pieces." And we ran around. We were our own crew and we did our own little videos for You Watch It.
2The Ten Commandments have been a cornerstone of our society for nearly one hundred years. If you've ever taken a Sunday off, or if you've ever stopped yourself from murdering someone, then you yourself have been following the Ten Commandments without even knowing it.

3Was in an alternate scene of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) with his long-time friend/collaborator Paul Rudd during the Pand Watch: Day 5 report. The scene can be seen on the Unrated version of Anchorman in the Blooper section.
