In the upcoming John Mulaney special, Baby J, almost every joke is about him in 2020–2021.
2023 John Mulaney wants to discuss rehab for cocaine, Adderall, Xanax, Klonopin, and Percocet addictions before the end of 2020. He wants to talk about behaving foolishly,
self-destructively at his own intervention, in early rehab, in active drug usage, and when he recognized how awful things had gotten.
He prudently doesn't discuss about his divorce, his new relationship with Olivia Munn,
with whom he has a baby, or his first appearance in gossip columns in May 2021. I think leaving other people out of your comedy mishaps is sensible.
The special argues that if his personal choices change his image, that's OK. In his one insightful remark, he says, "Likability is a jail." Whew.
