It felt a bit like John Mulaney was returning residence throughout his opening monologue for SNL. Whereas it’s the primary time that he’s taking the stage as host, the comic was a longtime author for the sketch present, so he is aware of his manner round higher than most. Whereas the announcer might have butchered his final identify (Mulvaney?), Mulaney took it in stride.
Mulaney acknowledged his historical past as a author and the way surreal it felt to now be the host after which launched right into a monologue that felt extra like his arise materials (in a great way!). Leaning into his old-before-his-time persona, Mulaney railed in opposition to new music whereas praising his spouse’s powerful exterior. Nonetheless, whereas acknowledging that he’s a bit old style, Mulaney joked in regards to the futility of life on the “outdated days” and the way all the things is quick now and the way it’s “completely unreasonable.” You’ll positively consider his hilarious rhyme the following time it’s a must to show that you just’re not a robotic on-line.
Mulaney’s monologue highlights his charming but curmudgeonly model that he’s curated — “I used to be in Connecticut doing white individuals stuff” — and his lightness on stage bodes effectively for the way effectively the remainder of his internet hosting stint will go. Who knew that constructing a gazebo in the course of the Civil Warfare can be such a strong bit?
