6. John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid

The Comeback Kid is the first stand-up special from the former Saturday Night Live writer and sitcom star since the 2012 release of New In Town and the wait was worth it for fans of John Mulaney. This special touches on legalizing marijuana, adulthood, his new marriage, Back to the Future and possibly the greatest you’ve ever heard about Bill Clinton.

Mulaney’s meeting with the former President who made it cool to be President is one of the several highlights of the hour-long special that may only be topped by his final line of the night on his dad. Filmed in May at the Chicago Theater, Mulaney kills it in his hometown and hopefully, we won’t have to wait three years for the next stand-up special because he’s a brilliant talent and one of the leaders of his generation of comedians.

Look for this to rise in future updates of this list with more viewings, but after one viewing it’s enough to debut inside the top 15.
