    John Mulaney Has Two New "Sack Lunch Bunch" Specials On The Way

    The thought of two more John Mulaney specials is single-handedly getting me through this year.

    If you're anything like me, John Mulaney's comedy specials give you an instant boost of serotonin.


    Kid Gorgeous? Fixed my acne, cleared my skin. His "Airport Sushi" sketch on SNL? Made my bed and cleaned my room. It's science, people.

    Well, fellow Mulaney fans, have I got some great news for you! John Mulaney and his kiddos are coming back for even more installments of John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch!


    Mulaney is set to have two new Sack Lunch Bunch specials coming to Comedy Central, where — fun fact! — he used to be an intern!


    In a press release, Mulaney explained, “I was an intern at Comedy Central when I was barely older than the kids in the Sack Lunch Bunch. I wasn’t a very good intern, so I am psyched they hired me again. We are thrilled to bring these specials to Comedy Central: a place where I have had so many good times.”

    And if that news wasn't exciting enough, get ready! One of his specials will be holiday-themed and will reunite the original Sack Lunch Bunch cast.

    Yes, the world may be a huge dumpster fire atm, but we've got something to look forward to, y'all!

    Now in case you're not hyped enough, I'd like to take a moment to remind you of the Pure Art™️ Mulaney's last Sack Lunch Bunch special gave us. Of course "Grandma's Got a Boyfriend" is an instant classic.

    It's a whole bop, and I'd like a Part Two please and thanks. You can watch it here.

    "Music Everywhere" was seven minutes of Jake Gyllenhaal giving us the performance of a lifetime and there is not a day that goes by where I don't think about it at least once.


    You can watch it here.

    And let's not forget André De Shields's algebra lesson, which is coincidentally the only way math should be taught.

    Sack Lunch Bunch had a bunch of incredible celebrity guest appearances, like David Byrne, Natasha Lyonne, Richard Kind, and Annaleigh Ashford, so I can't wait to see which celeb special guests make an appearance in the next two specials!

    If you haven't caught up on the first John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch special, it's available for streaming on Netflix. You'll thank yourself later, trust me.
