If you haven't heard of John Mulaney already, once you've read this list, you won't be able to wait to binge his sets on Netflix. Basically, if this is your introduction to Mulaney, you're welcome. But for real, one day, I randomly decided to watch his comedy specials on Netflix, and now I can't get over them. I quote them far too often but am definitely not ashamed of that. For some scale of his humor, I have compiled this list of 55 lines that make me laugh every time I hear them. Also, this is just 1 of 3 specials of his I have seen. Not to mention that I just found out there is an earlier one, so now I've made my weekend plans.....
Mulaney's comedy is a great mix of Chicago accents, hilarious happenings in his own life, with a few bits and pieces included that will definitely catch your attention. If you are looking for a funny and straightforward comedian to watch, give Mulaney a chance. It's refreshing to be able to just laugh without cringing at personal views or trying to get through what should be warned before-hand as a rant. You don't have to agree with the one political section of the show, but you will agree that it is hilarious. Great comedian and a great show, well deserving of its recent Emmy win!

Now that you've read this list, you're probably wondering the context behind these lines. Fair question. It might also be helpful to remind you that all of these are just the skeleton behind a single show. Mulaney effortlessly brings all of the topics of his comedy into a complete, and now Emmy Winning set that I personally have watched countless times. You're never really sure where the show is going, not even based on the title. but, that just makes it all the more interesting and entertaining. There is no way Mulaney could be considered, "Not funny!"
