John Mulaney is a two-time Emmy and WGA award-winning writer and comedian with a massively successful stand-up comedy career.

In 2018, he traveled the United States with the sold-out Kid Gorgeous Tour, which was later released as a Netflix stand-up special and won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing in a Variety Special. In 2015, he released “The Comeback Kid,” also a Netflix original, which The AV Club called the “best hour of his career.” In 2012, his Comedy Central special “New in Town” had Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly hailing him as “one of the best stand-up comics alive.”

Solidifying himself as a fan favorite, Mulaney has been invited to host “Saturday Night Live” four times. He began writing for “SNL” in 2008 and created memorable characters such as “Stefon” with Bill Hader and appeared as a “Weekend Update” correspondent. He has written for IFC’s “Documentary Now” and Netflix’s “Big Mouth,” on which he voices the character of Andrew. In 2018, he made his big-screen debut voicing Peter Porker/Spider-Ham in the animated film “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.”

He has also starred on Broadway in the runaway hit “Oh, Hello on Broadway,” written and performed alongside Nick Kroll. The duo have since released a Netflix special of the same name as well as “Oh, Hello: The P’dcast,” based off their characters Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland.

In December of 2019, the critically acclaimed and Emmy-nominated musical variety special “John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch” debuted on Netflix. The festivities will continue with a pair of holiday-themed “Sack Lunch Bunch” specials coming to Comedy Central in the near future.
