John Mulaney is best known for his work as a writer on Saturday Night Live and as a standup comedian with standup specials The Top Part, New in Town, and The Comeback Kid. Malaney was the creator and star of the short-lived Fox sitcom Mulaney, a semi-autobiographical series.
In his bio it is reported when he was seven he had an opportunity to audition for the role of Kevin in the film Home Alone, but his parents declined. When he was in junior high at St. Clement School, in lieu of doing reports, he and his best friend, John O'Brien, would offer to perform what they had learned in the format of a skit. Mulaney would also frequent the Museum of Broadcast Communications, where he would watch archived episodes of shows such as I Love Lucy or The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
In addition to his work on SNL, Mulaney worked for a number of years as a stand-up comedian. He has performed on Live at Gotham, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and Comedy Central Presents. Mulaney's
stand-up comedy album titled The Top Part in 2009 received some critical reviews and a stand-up comedy special called New In Town in 2012 moved him more in the comedy performance catogory. Both were produced at Comedy Central.
Mulaney's third stand-up comedy special titled The Comeback Kid was released two years ago, on Netflix. His second stand-up show, New In Town, which premiered on Comedy Central in 2012, is also be found on Netflix. Mulaney received a 2016 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for his work on The Comeback Kid, losing to Patton Oswalt's Talking for Clapping. Mulaney's fourth stand-up show and special, Kid Gorgeous, will be touring in summer and fall 2017 with a stop at Houston's Revention Music Center.
