John Mulaney is a two-time Emmy® and WGA award-winning writer, actor, and comedian. In 2018, he traveled the United States with the sold-out "Kid Gorgeous Tour," later released as a Netflix stand-up special and won an 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.” Starting March 2022, he’ll be touring with his newest hour "John Mulaney: From Scratch."

John Mulaney hosted Saturday Night Live for the fifth time on Feb. 26, 2022. 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.  

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

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