A children’s musical comedy special from a man with neither children nor musical ability? That’s the pitch behind John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch, which comes to Netflix this Christmas.

Mulaney and the kids will be joined by celebrities such as David Byrne, Andre De Shields, Natasha Lyonne, Annaleigh Ashford, Shereen Pimentel, Richard Kind, and Jake Gyllenhaal from the movie Zodiac.

Mulaey promises “a collage of Broadway caliber showstoppers, comedy sketches for all ages, meditations on the unknown from children and adults, and a papier mache volcano”. You can unwrap it with the family on Christmas Eve, when it drops on Netflix.

Here’s the trailer:

John Mulaney heads to Netflix for retro kids’ special

24th November 2019

John Mulaney is heading to Netflix for an old-fashioned kids’ special this Christmas.

The Emmy Award winning comedian aims to recapture the magic of the bygone TV era when children sang songs about their feelings with celebrity guests on funky outdoor sets. The result? John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch.

“I’m John Mulaney and I am a 37 year old man,” said Mulaney, announcing the show. “The Sack Lunch Bunch is a group of children ages 8-13 who are more talented than me.”

Mulaney and the kids will be joined by celebrities such as David Byrne, Andre De Shields, Natasha Lyonne, Annaleigh Ashford, Shereen Pimentel, Richard Kind, and Jake Gyllenhaal from the movie Zodiac.

Mulaey promises “a collage of Broadway caliber showstoppers, comedy sketches for all ages, meditations on the unknown from children and adults, and a papier mache volcano”, describing it as “funny, musical, joyous, anxious, and surprisingly profound”.

John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch is directed by Rhys Thomas (Documentary Now, SNL, John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid). Mulaney also took to Twitter to credit his co-writer, Marika Sawyer.

“My name’s on the poster but this would not exist without Marika Sawyer, who Ive written with since SNL 2008,” he tweeted. “Her genius comedy brain & her love of the Nutshell Library made this happen. She’s not on social media she‘ll never see this, and vetoed any photo of her. She’s the best.”

The special launches globally on Netflix on 24th December 2019.
