Poor guy had 15 years of sobriety under his belt. The stress of this year got to him. Hope he and Anna end up alright.
I don’t know what point John was trying to get across but I understand and agree

this was hilarious and SHOULD be a weekly segment. never cut awkward pauses again. thank you.
Not Sure.

Poor dude. This year has been terrible and I don't blame him for slipping. I just hope he gets better soon.
This is the interview that keeps giving. Just give him a weekly segment on the show and make him wear that exact outfit Everytime. Haha

The “In Summation” title card sent me to another planet. Bold of them to assume there was anything said at all in this segment that could be remotely summarized.

“that’s something you wait out, gangsta” john what 😭
I get that this was created while he was most likely abusing substances, but I believe this sketch was intended to come across as a bit unhinged/absurd regardless. You’re still allowed to laugh at this, he’s being funny on purpose. Glad he’s making healthy choices tho

Did anyone else noice how quiet John got when Seth mentioned the death of Princess Diana, and how quick he was to change the topic? Seems kinda suspicious for me.

Did anyone think there was something fishy about this interview the first time, and now, after the rehab thing, it makes a lot of sense? Hoping you get better, John. Your fans love you, and we know you’ll get through this!
Holly Coriell
Holly Coriell:
This makes me so sad. There is nothing more sad that seeing a comic like this. As a person who loves their part of being part of the support crew of a comedy club this is heart wrenching and I hope with all of my soul he gets well enough to just live. A world without Mulaney is a dark world indeed. Nothing is more important than his wellness.
i just thought that they were going for an unplanned vibe or something... get better soon john, you're in my thoughts!

I’ve had very intense struggles with alcoholism. Staying sober during the pandemic has had me stretched so thin. As much as I love John and I get genuinely excited for his talk show appearances— It would be nice to see some transparency on why this video is still up. I’m not going to lie: I love this a lot. It’s very raw, but I don’t think it’s intentional. Seth seems kind of annoyed near the end, but I really don’t know. Would love to see what other people think. Hopefully it’s just a misunderstanding.
I’ve got nothing but respect for both of these exceptional comedians. My love goes out to John and his family.

My family and I are HUGE John Mulaney fans. Understanding now that he was on drugs and thankfully heading into rehab shortly after this interview I wanted to say that I’m torn after watching this. Two comedic friends riffing together trying to “find” something humorous is very entertaining to me. It’s like watching a professional athlete or musician train. A peak behind the curtain so to speak. I thought that’s what we were seeing at first but you could tell Seth wasn’t really into it and then became a bit snarky. Perhaps he realized that he wasn’t sober half way into their time together but if that’s the case.... why make these outtakes public? To shame John? Seth should be there to support his friend in his hour of weakness not showcase his fall from the wagon. Or maybe he’s just angry at him for coming on and not doing set material. Posting this seems kind of icky on Late Night but what do I know? There’s more to the story I’m sure and I hope in due time we hear more about it. I’m very hopeful that John will get back to a place he feels personally content. A place that he realizes that he needs to do “very little” to be funny. John Mulaney has an incredible comedic mind and being under the influence dulls his inner light. You got this John. Don’t get foiled without using your STREET SMARTS!
His behavior here makes so much sense now, get better John!

Sydney Pakkala Shepard
Sydney Pakkala Shepard:
As much as I care about John Mulaney and as concerned as I am for his well-being, I really don’t see why this clip specifically would come off as him being on something. Seth seems to be obviously reading off of cue cards which needed to be made beforehand (on late night shows the topics they discuss are usually pre-planned). There’s also a defined bit happening here, the premise being that John came up with an idea for a whole segment so he could come on and share his thoughts. Which are the same knee-jerk reactions that a lot of people had to Meghan and Harry leaving only to come to a more nuanced perspective on the situation with the help from Seth. Before learning that John was entering rehab after relapsing I loved this video and I honestly still love it just as much now.
Daniel Johnson
Daniel Johnson:
Ok now that he's checked into rehab this segment makes a bit more sense. Not that he's trashed here, but he's got a lightning-quick comic mind and he's clearly a step slower. Glad he's getting help and I'm looking forward to many more years of genius from him

Having Seth introduce Mulaney and then smash cutting to him sitting on the couch sitting in complete silence with no applause is the funniest thing I've seen all day.

I don't see john acting oddly here. Idk why everyone is saying this skit shows him on drugs. I don't see it. I hope his recovery goes well. He's my favorite comedian.

This was a weird segment when it first came out, but now that the news is out about John’s substance abuse struggles, it’s enormously obvious that he was not...completely sober when they filmed this.

“Prince Harry has entered the chat” it’s nice to know that gen z popularized slang is a part of his vocabulary.

This is just an ad for Netflix's The Crown
John got screwed by the producers here. He’s doing a mostly typical stand up routine and it gets panned by the media as “bizarre”.... his timing and delivery are all there. There’s just no audience or laugh track. Newsflash: most highly polished productions seem weird when you lose the music and the audience track!

There’s nothing really here in this late night clip that indicates any cause for alarm, at least as far as I can see, but I am sad to hear that John is actually in the midst of a struggle with sobriety and I hope to see him come out on the other side of this battle victorious.
Michael Reidy
Michael Reidy:
I like how the description says John “dropped by” Late Night....even though he’s a staff writer
That's the most unhinged I've seen Mulaney. It was fun to watch.
Hoping he gets well because Mulaney is a national treasure.
Bobby Greco
Bobby Greco:
The cocaine makes sense now. Rest easy my tall child who is under a lot of stress
They're now saying that this is the "troubling" segment that they're using as an example of why John Mulaney checked into rehab. Claiming that he was out of his mind on substances during it. There are two other segments that go along with this, from the same night, in which he is far more focused. It's just his comedic style. I'm not saying he doesn't have a problem. Obviously, he does if he's checked into rehab. But I wouldn't say that this clip is an example of it.
Is it really that hard to notice that Seth is reading off cue cards behind John? Seth wasn't riffing with John or trying to downplay the awkwardness, this is a sketch they were doing and you can hear Seth stumble over his lines slightly a few times. Seriously, how is this not obvious to anyone who has seen Seth do the Stefon sketches on Weekend Update before?

Val L
Val L:
Yeah, I really don’t get the people acting all condescending about this skit.
First time I watched it, I found it absolutely hilarious, I couldn’t stop laughing, still can’t. In fact, this along with his latest hosting of SNL prompted me to seek out more of his work. And really, that^ clip is in keeping with the rest of his comedy. Aslo, Seth is playing along brilliantly pretending to be all confused about it which is what makes the whole thing doubly hilarious.
R M:
John clearly guilt tripping by the end once Seth said I don’t mind having you on but next time. John thought he was playing it cool this whole time but Seth’s words let him know he wasn’t fooling anyone. Get better John!
John looks like he's about to stand up and Rick Roll us.
How are you all so incredibly blind to the fact that John Mulaney and Seth Myers are obviously riffing and having a joke together? Seth isn’t getting “snarky” or “annoyed”, it’s part of the character he is playing as a professional comedian in this segment of his show. He and John have been collaborators and friends for over a decade. While John Mulaney could have been under the influence in this clip, you’d have to be stupid to think that Seth Meyers is annoyed with him.
Maya Friedrich
Maya Friedrich:
I laughed so hard at this as someone who watches The Crown but I feel a little bad now looking back...I think he was definitely fucked up. Speaking as someone who has done a lot of drugs and is now clean. I checked into rehab right before Christmas three years ago. Hope things go well for him.

shaghayegh mnf:
this is not drug talk or atleast one can never be as sure of it as some of you guys in the comments sound like,,, anybody who has adhd or is close to one with adhd knows how in shambles ppl with that disorder's speech is...and for those saying this is not his usual behavior I have to remind u that this is literally a concept for the segment that he's testing out,, some find that funny you know? also watch him tell his ghost story on stephen colbert. he CAN get rambly in fact I think he inherently IS a rambly person that could be perceived as not funny when he's unprepared or just has an off day. anyways under influence or not none of us really know him enough to judge.

the way that we all kind of noticed something was off 😕 love you john, sending good health ❤️

This video is my last two brain cells trying to write an essay about the royal family that’s due tomorrow and it’s 3am
Welp, this makes a lot more sense now. Hope he gets well soon.
when I watched this I didn't get it. he usually is very clever. He seemed so angry and spiteful unlike the funny critic that he was. he was out of it. he never spoke to ppl like that in interviews. very angry. but I have to say he at least was able to read and talk while high. his eyes look so bad and the pauses are too cringy to watch.
john: suspiciously related to the princess diana death
also john: google algorithm provides royal family related news

*coincidence? i think not*

i love it

From 9:20-9:30, 😢. You can see and hear the pain he's in. Even in the midst of a comic piece, it's blatantly obvious. I hope John finds joy and peace and gets better soon.

Honestly, the best thing I've seen in a while. It's like Eric Andre Show level absurdity, but for the whole family.

I feel like once a week John just texts Seth and says “I’m really bored. Can I come and riff on the show again?”
Feel better John, you're a legend
Just heard John had to check in rehab. Hope he'll get better soon, I can't imagine how painful it must be to be there during holidays. His humour and is delivery are the ones that makes me laugh the most.
Hope John gets better in rehab.

Sad that he relapsed during this. hope he’s okay.
You can tell he’s high when he takes his sunglasses off and it’s really sad but I hope he gets better
This seems like John’s alter ego that is friends with Pete Davidson
Divyashree Rao
Divyashree Rao:
Who's here after he checked into rehab? Apparently, he was inebriated during this sketch.

Jonathon Hafner:
He did well rolling with it given his train of thought was off the rails.
“i’m not chronologically smart”
He is so far gone. I wish I had seen this before he went to rehab to see if I would have thought he was out of his mind. I have seen him live and have watched a lot of interviews with him and he’s normally charismatic and charming and right now he seems like a broken man. I hope Seth talked to him after they were off air.
Caliban Darklock
Caliban Darklock:
The lack of an audience response actually makes this funnier. Plus it rather pointedly showcases the command of timing Seth and John have - they're not responding to an audience in the room, they're just THAT GOOD at knowing when the next line needs to happen.
Wishing you a successful recovery John, we’re all rooting for you

Avery Mac
Avery Mac:
Seeing this now is really sad. It felt a bit off a few weeks ago, and seeing what his eyes look like is incredibly disturbing. And Seth is obviously uncomfortable and knows somethings up. I hope John knows that we’re all rooting for him and he should just do whatever he needs to get better❤️
this new writer's bits are pretty funny, maybe one day he'll make it to snl or have a stand up career 👍🏽
Donovan Gallaway
Donovan Gallaway:
Is this going to be one of those times when John blacks out drink and wakes up with money in his pocket?
Alicia D
Alicia D:
This is hard to watch, he'a clearly drunk and/or high during this segment and if he was, NBC should remove this video. As a long-time fan of Mulaney, you can tell something is off. I knew something was off when he said he needed structure so he started working for Seth Meyers. One of the most important things about sobriety is having structure - which for John would mean touring and working on films/tv and all of that was taken away this year.
I'm happy that he acknowledged that he was struggling and sought help - it could've easily went the other way, like Philip Seymour Hoffman who also relapsed after 10yrs+ of sobriety... and sadly we know how his story ended.
When I heard about Mulaney, it made me realize that many recovering addicts were prob unable to go to NA/AA meetings due to Covid.
Is it just me or has it become very clear that John Mulaney killed Princess Diana
