Comedian John Mulaney To Perform At Eisenhower

The Student Programming Association (SPA) announced that Saturday Night Live comedian John Mulaney will speak as a part of SPA’s Comedy Month in April. The performance will be April 4 at 8 p.m. in Eisenhower Auditorium.

Mulaney is a comedian, actor, writer, and producer best known for his work on Saturday Night Live, for which he was nominated for four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series between 2009 and 2012. He also won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics in 2011, and was nominated for two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special in 2013 and 2015.

Aside from SNL, Mulaney also has a successful career in stand-up comedy and has performed on television shows like “Conan,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Since 2009, he has released three stand-up comedy specials entitled “The Top Part,” “New In Town,” and “The Comeback Kid.”

Fox agreed to air Mulaney’s semi-autobiographical sitcom pilot “Mulaney” in 2013. Mulaney was the creator, producer, writer, and star of this series until its cancellation in May 2015.

Mulaney is on a stand-up tour this year with comedian Nick Kroll called “Oh, Hello.” Ticketing information for this event will be available on SPA’s Facebook event page.
