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.
Listen to the 30 min. audio interview here:
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.
