Emmy Award Winning Comedian John Mulaney aims to recapture the
magic of that bygone television era when children sang songs about their
feelings with celebrity guests on funky outdoor sets. The result: John
Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch.
John Mulaney and I am a 37 year old man. The Sack Lunch Bunch is a group of
children ages 8-13 who are more talented than me. In this special, we are
joined by celebrity guests like David Byrne, Tony Award Winner Andre De
Shields, Natasha Lyonne, Annaleigh Ashford, Shereen Pimentel, Richard Kind, and Jake
Gyllenhaal from the movie Zodiac. The result is a collage of Broadway caliber
showstoppers, comedy sketches for all ages, meditations on the unknown from
children and adults, and a papier mache volcano. It’s 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). The special launches globally on Netflix on December 24, 2019.
