Early in his career, John Mulaney wrote for Saturday Night Live, creating memorable characters such as ‘Stefon’ with Bill Hader and appeared as a “Weekend Update” correspondent. Mulaney has also been invited to host Saturday Night Live four times, solidifying himself as a fan favorite.

Mulaney has written for IFC’s Documentary Now and Netflix’s Big Mouth, on which he voices the character of Andrew. He’s also starred on Broadway in the runaway hit written and performed alongside Nick Kroll in Oh, Hello On Broadway. The duo have since release a Netflix special of the same name, as well as Oh, Hello: The P’dcast, based off their characters Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland.
