John Mulaney goes back to work after focusing on his health.
Later this month, the 38-year-old comedian will be putting on his first live shows in 2021, having quietly booked four dates at New York City Winery from May 10-14.
All four shows are already sold out, according to the venue’s website, but there is an option to sign up for the waiting list if more tickets are released. Phones are not permitted during performances and proof of a COVID-19 vaccine or negative test is required to enter.
The appearances mark his return to public life after several media reports in December 2020 that he had checked into rehab for addiction battles. A representative for the Spider-Man: In the Spider-Verse, the voice actor did not respond to E! The messages’ request for comment at this point.
It’s unclear whether the scheduled dates will be part of a bigger tour as he hasn’t announced anything on social media yet. On his own website it simply says: “No appointments at the moment. Check back soon!”
John has been open about his struggles with alcohol and cocaine addiction in the past, and addressed his previous problems in both the media and his stand-up comedy.
