John Mulaney - talent reel

Comedian John Mulaney is taking SoCal by storm, check out his schedule for the first part of this month (he'll be back in LA at the end of the month also):

Feb 5 2008 8:00P - Comedy Death Ray @ UCB LA Hollywood
Feb 6 2008 8:00P - The Improv Hollywood
Feb 9 2008 8:00P - The Improv Hollywood
Feb 11 2008 9:00P - Garage Comedy

You may have seen John Mulaney on Conan or CollegeHumor.com and now you have several chances to see him in person and you shouldn't miss out. He's a reserved and polite fellow one-to-one and his stand-up has a notably direct and non-caricatured delivery. He saves his caricatures for his hilarious "historical" bits (see his video reel above for some prime examples).

LAist had a chance to talk to Mulaney where he was resting up in New York before embarking to California for a month of shows across the state.

LAist: So has the WGA strike been affecting some of the projects you were working on or planning on working on?

John Mulaney: Yes, I think it's affected everyone hasn't it? Even as a non-Guild member there's a lot of areas that I would feel uncomfortable working for - for a struck network or any other struck conglomerate. There's a lot of avenues that are a little sketchy in the writing realm so it's been good [to avoid any conflict]. Did I book myself more than before the strike? I don't know, it's just seemed to work out this way.
