Plot Synopsis

Using a mixture of ensemble comedy, stand-up performances and an observational point-of-view, this half-hour, multi-camera comedy series centers on a rising stand-up comic trying to take his career to the next level -- and the friends and mentors who lift him up, hold him back and push him around. John Mulaney is a 29-year-old comedian working the stand-up circuit and looking for his big break. But when self-centered comedy legend and game show host Lou Cannon hires Mulaney as a writer, life changes drastically. Lou may be John's entree into the world of big-money show business, but he's also a total nightmare. Still, the job represents everything Mulaney thinks he wants. But Mulaney's life becomes a tug-of-war between the stress of his new job and his guilt over not being there for his two best friends and roommates: Jane, a tightly wound, yet directionless personal trainer; and Motif, a powerhouse comic who shares nothing in common with Mulaney -- except the world of stand-up. Rounding out this odd group of friends is Andre, a trust-fund baby who has a knack for showing up in Mulaney's life at the worst possible moments. If Mulaney has one refuge from the chaos that surrounds him, then it's his neighbor, Oscar, a 71-year-old gay veteran of New York who has seen it all and is Mulaney's oracle of sound advice when he feels like life has gone off the rails.
On Sunday, February 15, 2015 at 7pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the finale of MULANEY. In this new episode, "Life is a Series of Different Apartments," Mulaney and the gang secretly crash at a Lou's vacant pad and unknowingly eat some special Oscar "treats," leading to more problems when Lou unexpectedly returns from vacation early.
