It was a blinking moment and you will miss it. Tickets for Comedian John Mulaney’s First Series of Shows since rehabilitation are already sold out.
Next week’s shows mark the “Big Mouth” star’s return to the stand-up scene after spending two months at a Pennsylvania facility to treat his alcohol and cocaine addictions. The shows, titled “John Mulaney: From Scratch,” are scheduled May 10-14 at New York’s City Winery.
The tickets were advertised under the radar, with many fans not knowing they existed until it was too late to buy them. But all hope is not lost – there is a waitlist option to receive alerts if more tickets become available.
No phones will be allowed inside the venue and guests must show full proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours to attend the event.
The 38-year-old comedian entered rehab in December and has been in sober outpatient care since February. A source told the New York Post Page six that meanwhile, Mulaney “was doing fine, although he still wasn’t ready to go back to work.”
Mulaney has been silent on social media since December, and its official website list “No date to come at the moment. Come back soon! “
The Emmy winner has been outspoken about his struggles in previous stand-up shows and interviews. In a 2018 “Off Camera” interview with Sam Jones, Mulaney explained how, at a young age, he hid his drug use from his parents.
“I kept appearances. [My parents] I knew I could go to a party and drink beer or something. They had an understanding of high school parties and they weren’t fools, ”Mulaney said. “But if I was, you know, playing around with drugs when I was really young, I knew you had to keep up appearances. I would grab some mushrooms and walk through the front door and say, “Hello. Good night. I’ll be upstairs, ‘and then run. “
Mulaney joined “Late Night With Seth Meyers” as a writer in November, on behalf of her psychiatrist’s suggestion to find a job that gives her life structure. He spoke on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in December on the new opportunity.
“I can’t stress enough how grateful I am for the job,” Mulaney said. “Rather than [Seth Meyers] like, ‘John, you’re clearly going through something, but your jokes are terrible,’ he gave me a few segments to come and do what I wrote, and those were really, really fun.
