First Look: ‘Mulaney' | EW
Writing a final Stefon?
No sitcom for John Mulaney.
Huge bummer. Really would have loved to see it, but I’m sure we’ll see Mulaney elsewhere soon.
Some fans online have expressed concern that Mulaney is a multi-camera show with a live audience when the bulk of the funniest, coolest sitcoms in the past decade have been single-camera with no audience, but let me assure you that the pilot is just as dense with jokes as a single-camera show and having an audience there doesn’t change the pacing of the humor too much. Some of the best sitcoms ever, from Taxi to Cheers, Seinfeld to NewsRadio, have been multi-cam, and there’s no reason a multi-cam show today can’t be good. Mulaney excels in the format and brings sharp witty comedy back to the three-camera world. A performer like Martin Short can feed off of a live audience, energizing him in a way that wouldn’t be possible if he was just playing to a bunch of crew members trying to do their jobs and not laugh. The rest of the ensemble is packed with performers with live audience experience like stand-ups Mulaney, Newman, and Smith, SNL cast member Nasim Pedrad, and frequent SNL host Elliott Gould.
Yes! Thank you.
Please get picked up. Please get picked up. Please get picked up.
In less than four hours the pilot episode of MULANEY starts filming before a live studio audience. I’m very excited.
It’s so insane to me that John Mulaney isn’t crazy famous yet. I hope this show is magical and takes off like a rocket ship.
That’s right comedy nerds: multicam. I can hear the torn minds and hearts across the internet already.
(Also, NBC, please put this to series now.)

Well now I feel dumb for not going to this.
Here is a clip from my boyfriend, John Mulaney’s standup special airing on Comedy Central on January 28th at 10pm. He will make you laugh, so watch it!

Some of you may have noticed that I posted these individually on my personal tumblr earlier tonight, but I didn’t want to torture you guys with 15 different posts about this, so I condensed them into one!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed casting them.
