All the rumors are true: John Mulaney is headed to NJPAC. The Emmy-winning writer, actor, comedian and SNL alum is on tour with From Scratch, a new set tackling addiction, relapse and controversy in the public eye. With brutal honesty and cutting introspection, John’s stand-up is as funny as ever. (The “I Saw Him Right After He Got Outta Rehab” shirts are pretty good, too.) It’s a must-see for fans of his iconic comedy specials Kid Gorgeous, The Comeback Kid and New In Town, as well as his work on Documentary Now!, Big Mouth, Kroll Show and John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch.
