John Mulaney relays stories from his childhood and Saturday Night Live (1975), eviscerates the value of college, and laments getting older in this comedy special. Other topics include the church, his family, Trump and pedophiles abducting kids.
Comedian John Mulaney talks about his milk toast boyish looks, his childhood, his Jewish girlfriend, his gayish charm, his favorite TV shows, Ice-T, a homeless person he met in N.Y., and a prostate exam with Batman.
The host of The Soup & star of the show, Community, brings you his first stand-up special. He discusses everything from feeding alligators in the south to wanting to change the San Francisco 49er's name to something a little more relevant.
In the months following the unsolved murder of 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, responses were elicited from her Colorado hometown community, creating a work of art from the collective memories and mythologies the crime inspired.
I first became a fan of John Mulaney after watching some of his stand up routines and he's clever remarks on talk show interviews, so naturally i was excited to see a television series with John in the leading role. Mulaney was referred to as a modern Seinfeld prior to its air date this fall, so i believe it is unfair to critique the show on it's similarities, as How I Met Your Mother was a modern adaptation of FRIENDS and was an enormous success in its own merit.
Having said this, i have to admit i am disappointed with Mulaney. The stand up routine in the beginning is always the most enjoyable, natural and unforced scene of each episode; there is little on screen chemistry between cast members, however the dialogue often leaves me cringing and regretting my decision to give the show another chance.
The series trailer depicted a lot of 'Ba Dm Tsss' moments however as of yet, it is yet to deliver and has provided viewers with a lot of missed opportunities and just plain awkwardness.
