Late in his newest special “Baby J,” John Mulaney spins a yarn about a desperate quest for cocaine. In the summer of 2020, the comedian bought a brand-new Rolex, then pawned it at a steep discount to get some hands on some quick cash. “As you process and digest how obnoxious, wasteful, and unlikeable that story is,” Mulaney concludes, “Just remember: that’s one I’m willing to tell you.”
John Mulaney made a name for himself as a freelance comedian and has continued to expand his career over the last few decades. Here's a look at the stand-up star's net worth.
#1. Who is John Mulaney?
Born on August 26, 1982, John Mulaney is a native of Chicago. Mulaney grew up as an altar boy, and has four siblings - two brothers (one deceased) and two sisters.
At the age of seven years old, Mulaney joined the Chicago children's sketch comedy group, The Rugrats.
He attended St. Clement Junior High School, performing written reports in the format of a skit. After graduating from St. Ignatius College Prep in 2000, Mulaney began to attend his parents' alma mater: Georgetown University.
The comedian majored in English and minored in theology, joining the school's improv group alongside Nick Kroll and Mike Birbiglia. In 2004, Mulaney graduated college and moved to New York City. He was hired as an office assistant at Comedy Central before stepping down from his position to work freelance.
#2. What is his net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, John Mulaney has an estimated net worth of around $10million. The 39-year-old star is best known for being a writer on late-night TV show Saturday Night Live.
He was discovered after performing on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and worked as a writer between 2009 and 2012.
While on SNL, Mulaney oftentimes appeared in the Weekend Update segment.
He's returned to host the show a total of five times, joining the ever-coveted Five-Timers Club on Saturday, February 26, 2022.
Mulaney has been credited as a writer on a number of projects, including: Maya & Marty; Documentary Now!; Oh, Hello on Broadway; the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco; and Late Night with Seth Meyers. He's also gone on to act in various films and television shows, including: Crashing, Portlandia, and Difficult People.

#3. Was John Mulaney in rehab?
In December of 2020, comedian John Mulaney checked into a Pennsylvania rehab facility following a resurgence of his addiction to alcohol, cocaine, and prescription drug use. At the time of his admission, a source close to him said: "John's friends and family are happy that he's finally getting some help and focusing on his health."
In February of 2021, Mulaney moved into outpatient care.
The stand-up has never been particularly personal in his work, instead favoring Seinfeld-style observation and sketches (“Saturday Night Live,” “The Sack Lunch Bunch”) that stand on their own. When Mulaney did discuss his own life, it was either a childhood memory recalled from a healthy distance or an anecdote about his then-stable, long-term partnership with his girlfriend-turned-wife. Even these details were jumping-off points for broader bits about buying real estate or dads’ obsession with World War II, not occasions for deeper disclosure.
