I think it was on Hulu that I first heard of John Mulaney, when I saw a commercial for his sitcom, Mulaney. It looked fine. It looked like it’d be kinda funny. It looked like a pretty standard stand-up-comedian-starring-sitcom.
But the commercial played, wherever it was that I saw it, over and over. And over. And over and over and over and over again.
I hated that commercial. I hated it so. Damn. Much.
Not because it was bad, just because it kept repeating ad nauseam.
Then, all of a sudden, this dude started showing up Netflix, and I hated seeing him there, too.
After repeated badgering, my sister convinced me to watch “just one part” of his special, Kid Gorgeous at Radio City and, well, it was hilarious.
We ended up going back and watching the whole thing from the beginning, and I’ve now shown that one part to several other people who I think have gone back and watched the whole thing as well.
Topics covered in this special include:
- Being a street-smart child.
- Nazis at the breakfast table.
- Completely normal and non-problematic college finances.
- Not nice celebrities.
- Convincing robots you aren’t a robot.
- Gazebo planning and construction.
- Horses in hospitals.
- Mayoral marital problems.
If you’re not in it for the long haul, and just want to watch the one part, skip ahead to 44:24 and enjoy.
