John Mulaney Overview:

One of the country's best comedians under age 30, John Mulaney has been funny since joining his first sketch comedy troupe at age 7. A writer for Saturday Night Live and touring stand-up, Mulaney performs smart, articulate, ironically detached comedy without ever being pretentious. The oddly mature comic draws from old-school influences like Jack Benny and Burns & Allen, though his comedy is anything but old fashioned. He mixes observational humor with old-fashioned storytelling, all delivered with expert timing and a knack for getting laughs out of the way he can pronounce a single word.
