December 1 - 2, 2017

With the face of a teenager and a deep, rich voice that belie his 35 years of age, the Emmy-winning John Mulaney is a relatively new kid on the comedy block, taking the scene by storm with his acerbic, intelligent observational humour. A writer for Saturday Night Live (see the hilarious 'Stefon' sketches) and star of his 2014 self-titled sitcom on Fox, Mulaney resonates with his generation as he weathers the climes of adulthood and uncertainty, all the while coming across as an adorable geek.
