Ithaca, N.Y. — Ithacans interested in seeing SNL star and standup comedian John Mulaney at Cornell tonight can still get tickets, according to the Cornell University Program Board.

John Mulaney, who is also the creator and star of the semi-autobiographical Fox sitcom “Mulaney,” will be performing at 8 p.m. Tuesday night in Bailey Hall. Tickets are $15 for the general public and an additional $5 if bought at the door (instead of at CornellConcerts.com).
“Mulaney first made his name as a writer, so his stand-up is infused with a lot of storytelling, wordplay and obscure pop culture references,” says Zach Zahos, president of CUPB.
Zahos said the event may in fact be best suited to those beyond their undergraduate years.
“I doubt most students will get some of the old comedians, actors and athletes he alludes to, which is surprising because you look at him and don’t expect him to have all this archaic knowledge rattling around,” Zahos said.
Mulaney is also well-known for co-creating, along with Bill Hader, the SNL character Stefon.
