EMMY® AWARD-WINNING WRITER AND COMEDIAN JOHN MULANEY BRINGS HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW TOUR KID GORGEOUS TO THE KIMMEL CENTER CULTURAL CAMPUS FOR THREE SHOWS DECEMBER 1 & 2

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Philadelphia, PA, October 18, 2017) –– The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, in association with Live Nation, welcomes John Mulaney to the Academy of Music on Friday, December 1, 2017 and Saturday, December 2, 2017.  Best known for his work on Saturday Night Live, Mulaney’s much-anticipated new tour, Kid Gorgeous, quickly reached capacity at the Kimmel Center, prompting a second and third show to be added. 

 

“John Mulaney’s impressive résumé sparks contagious laughter at every turn,” said Anne Ewers President and CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.  “His smart, witty approach to humor resonates with comedy fans worldwide and is a wonderful addition to our expansive comedic offerings this season.”

 

John Mulaney is an Emmy® Award-winning writer and comedian. He most recently starred in the Broadway hit, Oh, Hello on Broadway, alongside Nick Kroll. In 2015, Mulaney released his third stand-up special, a Netflix Original titled The Comeback Kid, which the AV Club called “his best hour of his career.” He began his career in New York’s East Village and has since toured around the world. In 2008, he began writing at Saturday Night Live where he appeared as a Weekend Update correspondent and co-created characters such as Stefon with Bill Hader. He currently writes for IFC’s Documentary Now and for Netflix’s Big Mouth on which he voices the character of Andrew.  Mulaney’s first comedy album, The Top Part, was released in 2009. He released his second Comedy Central special and album New In Town in 2012.  Upon review, Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly hailed Mulaney as “one of the best stand-up comics alive.”
