Netflix announced this past Monday that comic John Mulaney will be presenting his latest twist on the traditional comedy special with a multiple-night streaming event. He’s titled is John Mulaney Presents: Everybody’s in L.A.

Mulaney—who rose to prominence for his work as a writer for Saturday Night Live from 2008 to 2013—contributed to numerous sketches and characters. He has won two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for his features Kid Gorgeous and Baby J, and was the creator and star of the short-lived, semi-autobiographical Sitcom Mulaney on Fox (2014-2015). He’s also performed on television and Broadway, and now serves as a co-executive producer, writer, and sometimes as an actor in the IFC mockumentary series Documentary Now! (2015-present).

The actor’s new feature—which will take place over six episodes live on Netflix over the service’s Netflix Is a Joke Fest—will formally launch May 3, with additional episodes debuting nightly at 7 p.m. Pacific Time from May 6 to May 10. Mulaney will also perform at the Hollywood Bowl on May 4 as part of the festival, which will feature other major comics.

Each of the feature’s live installments will feature Mulaney exploring the city, and will incorporate many of the famous (and some of the not-so-famous) faces in Los Angeles. Netflix describes the feature as a “comically unconventional show [that] will feature special guests and field pieces shot in Los Angeles.” Mulaney wil serve as host, co-showrunner, and executive producer through his Multiple Camera Productions, with Ashley Eden credited as co-showrunner and EP and Dave Ferguson as head writer.

Everybody’s in L.A. will continue Mulaney and his Emmy-winning partnership with Netflix, which include previous specials such as John Mulaney: Baby J (2023,) The Comeback Kid (2015) and Kid Gorgeous (2018). He also delivered a similarly unconventional children’s musical comedy variety special, which was titled John Mulaney & and the sack Lunch Bunch, during that Window.

The former Saturday Night Live writer has dabbled on Broadway as well, with his co-creation Oh, Hello, which made its way to Netflix. He’s also guest starred on several TV shows, which includes the most recent season of The Bear.

The news of the comedy special comes as Netflix continues to experiment with live programming. Its first foray into real-time comedy happened in early 2023, when Netflix debuted Chris Rock: Selective Outrage. Netflix fully catapulted the event with pre- and postshows, which lined up other household names, including Jerry Seinfeld and Amy Schumer. Since then, the service has added more live events, from the SAG Awards, to recent tennis and golf tournaments.

Though rivals have been acquiring specials, including Alex Edelman’s Just for Us on Max, Netflix will devote ten days in May to remind the comedy community of its roster and reach. 300 shows across 35-plus Los Angeles Venues will occur, which will include everyone from Chris Rock to Matt Rife.

Mulaney has featured in multiple films and television and as a voice actor for animated films and in video games. He’s also won a Peabody Award alongside the writers of Saturday Night Live.
