John Mulaney always is up for something new.
John Mulaney is an iconic stand-up comedian, writer, producer, and actor. He studied English Literature and Religion at Georgetown University. When he graduated in 2004, he moved to New York with the hopes of being a comedian and began working as an office assistant at Comedy Central. A year later, he pitched the idea of making a parody of “I Love the ‘80s” titled “I Love the ‘30s.” Mulaney ended up making the show with Nick Kroll. Then Mulaney was hired as a commentator on the VH1 show, “Best Week Ever.”
In 2008, Mulaney auditioned for “Saturday Night Live” and got hired on the writing team and worked there for six years.

After John Mulaney left “Saturday Night Live” as a writer in 2012 to pursue other comedic ventures, Fox picked up his sitcom pilot called “Mulaney,” which he starred in, produced, and wrote. Unfortunately, the show didn’t perform well and was canceled shortly after, in 2015.
Mulaney then went on to write “Documentary Now!” and the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco. He also took on roles on television shows like “Crashing,” “Difficult People,” and “Portlandia.” Mulaney also currently voices the role of Andrew Glouberman in the show “Big Mouth,” co-created by Nick Kroll.
