Chicago, Church, and Hello: your-fave-is-catholic: Your Fave Is Catholic: John Mulaney Known for: Emmy Award winning television actor, stand-up comedian, producer. He is probably best known for being a cast member on the hit television show Saturday Night Live, but other television shows under his belt include Best Week Ever, Mayne Street, Ugly Americans, Kroll Show, The Jim Gaffigan Show, Big Mouth, several more appearances here there. He also has had his own stand-up comedy specials, those being The Top Part, John Mulaney: New In Town, John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid, John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City. Additionally, he also is part of the comedy act The Oh, Hello Show with fellow comedian Nick Kroll. He is also going to be the voice of Peter Porker/Spider Ham in the upcoming film Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse.  Evidence of Faith: Various sources confirm that John’s father, Charles W. “Chip” Mulaney, Jr., was an Irish Catholic man. Because of this, it’s safe to say that he raised John as a Catholic. In an interview with St. Louis Today, John also confirms that he attended at Jesuit run high School (St. Ignatius in Chicago) was greatly inspired with the great missionary work adventures his teachers would go on. Additionally, somebody here on Tumblr informed the mod of some other evidence as well. In his stand-up special Kid Gorgeous at Radio City, he does a routine where he talks about going to church as a kid, that while he may poke fun at the Catholic faith, he gets offended when non-Catholics poke fun at it, since his parents are still highly religious. Lastly, in an interview with Stephen Colbert, he talks about his experience as an altar boy how they both chose their Confirmation names after their late brothers.

He'd taken his suit to the drycleaner, and they'd wrapped the buttons on the sleeves and the coat with tinfoil to protect them, and John Mulaney didn't notice until half-way through his set, and was SO FLABBERGASTED that he never did finish the story about college and instead did five minutes on how stupid it was that his buttons were reflecting the light and he just didn't notice, and in that moment I understood more about John Mulaney as a person than I ever have meme-team-risk-analyst during one of his portland shows, he noticed this like 7 year old girl in the front row and asked her (and her parents) if she 'is aware that she is physically here right now or if she was just brought along. turns out her favorite john mulaney bit is the "and I'm new in town bit and that she's seen all his stuff. He was so shocked and discomforted by the fact a SEVEN YEAR OLD has seen his shows that he couldn't get through a bit about donating to charity without interupting himself at least three times to import good life lessons on this small child, as if that makes up for all the horrible things he's said that she heard sammysausage When I saw him in Ft.

 One of the funniest things I ever experienced was when I went to go see John
 Mulaney live, and halfway through a bit about how expensive college in the
 States is, he looked down at the sleeve of his suit jacket and just. stopped. dead
 halt, mid sentence
 And after like three seconds, where we're all trying to figure out the punchline
 because the story clearly hadn't ended, and John Mulaney quietly says, "Has
 there been tinfoil on my buttons the whole goddamn show?"
 He'd taken his suit to the drycleaner, and they'd wrapped the buttons on the
 sleeves and the coat with tinfoil to protect them, and John Mulaney didn't notice
 until half-way through his set, and was SO FLABBERGASTED that he never did
 finish the story about college and instead did five minutes on how stupid it was
 that his buttons were reflecting the light and he just didn't notice, and in that
 moment I understood more about John Mulaney as a person than I ever have
 meme-team-risk-analyst
 during one of his portland shows, he noticed this like 7 year old girl in the front
 row and asked her (and her parents) if she 'is aware that she is physically here
 right now or if she was just brought along. turns out her favorite john mulaney bit
 is the "and I'm new in town bit and that she's seen all his stuff. He was so
 shocked and discomforted by the fact a SEVEN YEAR OLD has seen his shows
 that he couldn't get through a bit about donating to charity without interupting
 himself at least three times to import good life lessons on this small child, as if
 that makes up for all the horrible things he's said that she heard
 sammysausage
 When I saw him in Ft. Lauderdale, there was a bar in the lobby that people kept
 leaving to go to. At one point, a guy in the front row just got up and BOOKED IT
 to get drinks. John Mulaney looked over at a woman who was next to the empty
 seat and asked, "Are you with him? What's his name?"
 She was, in fact, with him, and she did tell him her date's name. John Mulaney
 considered this, looked around, and unplugged his microphone. Leaning in to
 us, he told us that we were going to trick this guy so fuckin hard. He said, "At
