Quotes

John Mulaney: I wanna tell you one more story before I get out of here, about the night I met a guy named Bill Clinton. Some of you know who that is? For those of you that don't, he was President of the United States from 1993 until 2001, and he is a smooth and fantastic hillbilly who should be declared Emperor of the United States of America.

Mister Funny Suit
20 May 2018 | by NikkoFrancoSee all my reviews

John Mulaney's special is worth the watch. He engages the audience and himself. Humor comes in all forms and style and he doesn't come short of it. As a viewer there are times you are reminded of uncles who are in their Sunday best suits and the next second he brings himself and the audience back to the ground with his bumbling about his humble beginnings and musings. Sometimes his tone sounds a bit of a ventriloquist's puppet , he being the oversized puppet and sometimes he just really lets it show, that he is just a kid at heart.
