The first time we were introduced to New York comedian John Mulaney, it was through his stand-up bit about the reoccurring characters on Law & Order. (The best line, about bartenders who remember everyone: “Which New York do you work in? I live with people I don’t recognize!)
Now Mr. Mulaney, one of the writers of Saturday Night Live (and creator of Stefon!) has a new special premiering on Comedy Central this weekend. Much to our delight, he previewed some of the material on Conan this week, including another riff on Dick Wolf’s never-ending series–this time tackling everyone’s favorite rapey spin-off, Special Victims Unit–as well as one of the show’s stars, Ice-T. This is must-see TV, people.
