This time where comedians seem to be shifting away from just writing and telling the best jokes and bits possible with a mic on an empty stage in front of a big crowd was inevitable.
What was to come in this shift, however, was a mystery until a few years ago.
Julio Torres showed off his favorite shapes, Drew Michael performed with no audience, and Maria Bamford performed in front of just her parents in her living room. Revealed today in an Esquire profile of John Mulaney, John will be taking a swing at making a comedy special that will be truly for all ages and takes on a bit more of a Sesame Street vibe.
Our mind is racing as to even conceptualize what that might be, but we trust that Mulaney will make something special with this project.
