How much does John Mulaney make and what is his net worth?
American comedian and actor John Mulaney has a net worth of $10 million. As a writer for “Saturday Night Live” and as a stand-up comedian, he is well-known. John has been nominated for a number of Emmy Awards and has won two of them. In 2018, he won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for his film “John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City.”
He was born in Chicago, Illinois, on August 26, 1982. His mother, Ellen, taught at the Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, and his father, Charles, was an attorney and partner at Skadden Arps. John’s parents are Irish Catholic, and as a child, he served at the altar. He is the third child out of five.
Mulaney has always wanted to be in the entertainment business. At the age of seven, he joined “The Rugrats,” a sketch club for kids in Chicago. John was asked to try out for the role of Kevin in the movie “Home Alone,” but his parents said no because he was in a club.
Mulaney went to middle school in Chicago at St. Clement School. Instead of writing reports, he and his best friend put on skits about what they had learned. John played Wally Webb in the play “Our Town” when he was 14 years old. Mulaney went to St. Ignatius College Prep and then went to Georgetown University, where he majored in English and minored in theology. John joined the school’s improv group while he was in college. There, he met Nick Kroll and Mike Birbiglia. He later went on tour with Birbiglia, which helped him get better at being on stage.
In 2004, after he graduated from Georgetown, Mulaney moved to New York City to try to make a living as a comedian. He soon got a job as a secretary at Comedy Central. After working for the TV company for a year, John pitched an idea for a parody of “I Love the ’80s” called “I Love the ’30s.” He and fellow comedian Nick Kroll wrote the idea, but it didn’t get picked up. Mulaney realized that his job was making it harder for him to be a comedian, so he quit to work on his craft.
Over the next four years, John kept writing and performing. In 2008, when he appeared on several major late-night TV shows, he finally became known. Mulaney was asked to try out for “Saturday Night Live” after he did well on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” He didn’t do any impressions for his audition. Instead, he did stand-up comedy with character-like bits. John didn’t have high hopes for the job, but he was put on the show’s writing team, where he stayed for four seasons.
During this time, Mulaney put out an album of stand-up comedy called “The Top Part” and a special called “New in Town,” which was also a stand-up comedy album. He and actor Bill Hader came up with the SNL character “Stefon,” who is played by Hader, together. During his time at SNL, John was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series, along with the rest of the writing staff.
After leaving “Saturday Night Live,” Mulaney wrote for a number of other TV shows, such as “Maya & Marty,” “Oh, Hello on Broadway,” “Documentary Now!” and James Franco’s “Comedy Central Roast.” John also played supporting roles on the TV shows “Crashing,” “Portlandia,” and “Difficult People.”
“The Comeback Kid,” Mulaney’s third stand-up comedy special, came out in 2015. The special, which was on Netflix, was praised by critics. David Sims of “The Atlantic” called it “a reminder of everything that makes Mulaney so unique: stories full of well-observed details told with the confidence of someone decades older than 33.” John was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in 2016 for his work on “The Comeback Kid.” The nomination was for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special.
In May 2017, Mulaney started his “Kid Gorgeous” stand-up comedy tour, which lasted for two months. He spent seven nights at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City. One of his shows was recorded for a Netflix special called “John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City.” The movie got good reviews, and Steve Greene of IndieWire called it “one of the best pieces of writing of the year.” At the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, John won the award for “Kid Gorgeous” for having the best writing for a variety show.
In 2017, Martin Short, Steve Martin, Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Murray, and Norm MacDonald, along with Mulaney, were invited to The Kennedy Center to honor David Letterman, who was getting The Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. When Letterman got his prize, he told the crowd, “John Mulaney, ladies and gentlemen, this is the future of comedy.”
In 2019, Mulaney went on a comedy tour with Pete Davidson called “Sundays with Pete & John.” The shows were all sold out. Later that year, John put out a musical comedy show for kids called “John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch,” which got good reviews. Mulaney has been back to host “Saturday Night Live” four times over the years. This makes him the fourth SNL writer to host the show even though he was never a cast member.
Annamarie Tendler, who does makeup and makes lampshades, and Mulaney got married in 2014. Their wedding was in Boiceville, New York, and their friend Dan Levy officiated. They got a divorce in 2021, after John had been in rehab for a while the year before. After they broke up, John started dating Olivia Munn, who is an actress. John and Olivia told everyone in September 2021 that they were going to have a child. In December 2021, they had a boy.
