Filmed at the Skirball Theater in New York City, “John Mulaney: New In Town” shines a spotlight on the thoughts and feelings of writer (“Saturday Night Live”) and stand-up comedian John Mulaney, a pleasant, nearly 30-year-old man who enjoys making fun of himself and others. Mulaney tackles such red-hot topics as french fries, “Law & Order,” and his bygone partying days. Through his stories, viewers will watch Mulaney age from a nervous and dishonest child to a still nervous and dishonest adult.
“John Mulaney: New In Town” is executive produced by Mulaney, John Irwin, Dave Becky, and David Miner, directed by Ryan Polito, and produced by Casey Spira. Jonas Larsen and Anne Harris are the Executives in Charge Of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
January is Stand-Up Month on COMEDY CENTRAL and the month of laughs kicks off with the launch of a brand-new CC Stand-Up Facebook App, which will provide fans with the opportunity to program the channel’s Friday night stand-up block. With the new Facebook App, COMEDY CENTRAL is putting the schedule into the hands of its viewers with fans able to watch playlists comprised of the upcoming weekend’s featured comic’s favorite comedians. By using the CC Stand-Up App to “Like” them on Facebook and/or “Follow” them on Twitter, viewers will be casting their vote for the Friday night line-up with the top choices airing that night beginning at 9:00 p.m. On Friday January 27, the comedians selected from Mulaney’s playlist will be showcased.
Vaguely familiar to the millions who watch “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan,” VH1’s “Best Week Ever” and more, Mulaney is poised to become somewhat more recognizable with the debut of his special and accompanying album/DVD release. “John Mulaney: New In Town” is Mulaney’s first one-hour COMEDY CENTRAL original stand-up special and DVD and his second album. Previously, Mulaney had his own half-hour “COMEDY CENTRAL Presents” special and was featured in the COMEDY CENTRAL series “Live At Gotham.” His first album, “The Top Part,” was released in 2009 by COMEDY CENTRAL Records and was recently hailed as “criminally overlooked” and “a finely-crafted piece of work” by The Huffington Post.
Highlights of the Chicago-born Mulaney’s approximately half a decade in showbiz have included being named one of Variety’s “10 Comics To Watch,” one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Comedians On The Rise,” and most recently one of Rolling Stone’s “Comedy’s New Wave: Eight Rising Stars Guaranteed To Keep You Laughing For Years.” Mulaney is currently a writer and producer at “Saturday Night Live” where he has appeared as a “Weekend Update” correspondent.
This is an awesomely funny and whimsical Comedian that keeps you laughing with his “must be true because you cant make this S!!#T Up” Style.
If you miss the special tonight, get the DVD ASAP!
