John Mulaney            

Stand-Up Comedian & Former Writer for "Saturday Night Live"

John Edmund Mulaney is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and producer. He is best known for his work as a writer on Saturday Night Live and as a stand-up comedian with stand-up specials The Top Part, New in Town, The Comeback Kid, and Kid Gorgeous. He was the creator and star of the short-lived Fox sitcom Mulaney, a semi-autobiographical series about his fictional life.

After first working as a commentator on Best Week Ever, Mulaney auditioned for Saturday Night Live in August 2008, along with Kroll and T.J. Miller. Mulaney won a spot on the writing team, where he remained for six seasons. He also occasionally appeared on the show's Weekend Update segment. He and SNL actor Bill Hader co-created the recurring SNL character Stefon. Mulaney was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series with the SNL writing staff from 2009–2012. Mulaney won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards with Justin Timberlake, Seth Meyers and Katreese Barnes. Mulaney returned to host Saturday Night Live on April 14, 2018, making him the third SNL writer (after Conan O'Brien and Larry David) to host SNL despite never being promoted to a cast member.

In May 2013, NBC passed on picking up Mulaney's semi-autobiographical sitcom pilot, titled Mulaney. Mulaney was the creator, producer, and writer of his eponymous series until its cancellation in May 2015.
