Not much more to say about this new Comedy Central stand-up special, "John Mulaney: New in Town," besides it's funny. Very, very funny.
Mulaney is a 29-year-old writer for "Saturday Night Live" (he's the brains behind Bill Hader's "Stefon" character). He's a little nerdy and not really what you'd call edgy (at least not on basic cable) -- but he's still hilarious. His riff on the acting skills of "Law & Order: SVU" actor Ice T had me cracking up. "You mean, it's like when someone eats a lot of chocolate cake, and they can't stop eating chocolate cake?" You'll see what I mean.
This is Mulaney's first one-hour special (he was featured in a half-hour "Comedy Central Presents" special in 2009, which I'm going to look for online right now). It won't be his last.
An uncensored and extended DVD of the show will be released on January 31, which will include comedians Anthony Jeselnik and Dan Mintz critiquing the show and Mintz interviewing Mulaney.
Here's a taste of tonight's special, which airs at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central.
