"COMEDY CENTRAL Presents John Mulaney" Debuts April 3 At 10:00 P.M.

Whether as a commentator on VH1 or the Web series "I Love the 30s" or making any number of late night talk show appearances, John Mulaney is one of the most talked about new comedians on the comedy scene. His new CD, "The Top Part," hits stores on Tuesday, March 24, released on COMEDY CENTRAL Records.

A writer for "Saturday Night Live," Mulaney cut his teeth touring the country with his unique brand of storytelling and love of the TV show, "Law And Order." "The Top Part" CD was recorded in front of a packed house at the San Francisco Punch Line in November 2008.

His first half-hour special, "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents John Mulaney" airs on Friday, April 3 at 10:00 pm. Mulaney isn't used to being an object of fear in this stand-up special and wonders how the bartenders on "Law & Order" remember all their customers.
