John Mulaney and The Sack Lunch Bunch Trailer

John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch brought together the brilliant comedy of the titular Saturday Night Live writer and the format of a classic kids show from the 1980s for an outstanding comedy special on Netflix last year. Now the comedian and his ragtag group of eager kids will be returning for two more comedy specials, but this time it’s Comedy Central who will be producing them, starting with a holiday-themed edition that will arrive later this year.

john mulaney and the sack lunch bunch review

John Mulaney made a kid’s musical special. That sentence alone should probably be enough to sell you on John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch, the upcoming Netflix original Mulaney cooked-up just in time for Christmas. One of the funniest people in comedy right now, Mulaney brings his own unique brand of comedy to the scenario, and crafts something that is both utterly silly and surprisingly serious.

Well…serious probably isn’t the right word. No special that features special guest star Richard Kind hosting a segment called Girl Talk With Richard Kind can be thought of as that serious. Yet beneath all the absurdity and manic humor, Mulaney peppers in occasional bursts of existential insight, where the biggest recurring topics are personal fears and the inescapable specter of death. Trust me, it’s very funny.

Watch the John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch trailer below.
