Between Comeback Kid, Oh, Hello on Broadway, and Big Mouth, comedian John Mulaney has singlehandedly conquered Netflix. (Except, of course, whenever he’s working with his partner in crime, Nick Kroll.) Yet the former Saturday Night Live writer and popular stand-up isn’t done with the streaming giant by a long shot. He will be featured among the many performers who participated in Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity special in early April, and on Tuesday, May 1st, the first of two new comedy specials from the comic will debut exclusively on the platform.
Filmed at Radio City Music Hall in New York, where Mulaney sold out an impressive seven shows late last year during his most recent tour, John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City will be the first of a new “multi-special pact” between the comedian and Netflix. The precise number of specials was not revealed by either party in Wednesday’s announcement, though judging by the number of new hours that comics as varied as Dave Chappelle (four) and Gad Elmaleh (two) have released in recent memory, it seems the new deal could result in just about anything.
Who knows? Maybe a part of Mulaney and Netflix’s agreement was the inclusion of another Oh, Hello live show. Perhaps Gil Faizon (charmed I’m sure) and George St. Geegland will follow up on their appearance in Portlandia‘s final season, during which they explained their efforts to assist in a friend’s unplanned (and unknown) suicide.
