Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd were just two of the stars at Netflix’s premiere for its new series “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp” held on July 22 at the SVA Theater.

In a surge of nostalgia that has been seen in everything from our fashion, to our food, to our entertainment, Netflix is continuing to bring back blasts from the past (they have already announced a spin off to the 90s Full House), this time with its reboot of the cult classic “Wet Hot American Summer.”

The eight-episode series, which premieres on July 31, is a prequel to the 2001 film, and David Wain, the director, has managed to bring back the entire original cast. Featuring a roster of talent that includes Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks and Molly Shannon, the stars will be re-creating the roles that made them famous almost ten years ago.

While back then the actors were comically older than their characters, this time around the difference is much bigger, and we’re guessing much funnier. Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler playing teenage camp counselors, yes please.

Guaranteed to be full of laughs and memories, the show is one of the most anticipated of the summer, and its premiere brought some of comedy’s funniest to the city. Attendees included Lake Bell, Allie Stamler, Marisa Ryan, Jonathan Stern, Michael Ian Black, Nina Hellman and David Hyde Pierce.
