Special Guests, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natasha Lyonne,
Richard Kind and More…
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.
I’m 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
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.
