Comedy Central has announced a deal with comedian John Mulaney to executive produce two more Sack Lunch Bunch specials. These follow-ups to his 2019 Netflix parody of children’s TV shows will include “an upcoming holiday-themed one that will reunite the cast from the original.” No release date or further information was given in a statement issued by Comedy Central.
Mulaney’s Sack Lunch Bunch debuted in December 2019 and was full of original songs like “I Saw A White Lady Standing On The Street Just Sobbing (And I Think About It Once A Week),” “Grandma’s Boyfriend Paul,” and “Plain Plate of Noodles.” It also featured surprise cameos from Jake Gyllenhaal and David Byrne.
“I was an intern at Comedy Central when I was barely older than the kids in the Sack Lunch Bunch,” Mulaney said in the statement. “I wasn’t a very good intern, so I am psyched they hired me again.” These specials mark Mulaney’s return to Comedy Central, where he last did the special New in Town in 2012.
Mulaney is a former Saturday Night Live writer, perhaps now better known as a fan favorite SNL host. He appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse as Peter Porker/Spider-Ham, and has had a prolific series of collaborations with comedian Nick Kroll since appearing opposite him on Comedy Central’s Kroll Show. The Sack Lunch is part of his increasing flirtations with children’s programming–earlier this year Mulaney went on HBO Max’s The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo.
