    I like John Mulaney, and I like Nick Kroll. But for some reason they always bother me when they're together.

    4:26 Why is John pretending to hold a joint so in such a villainous manner? Ya know, the kind of way no one holds a joint.

    Sooooo I know John’s married but can they get married? He’s already an old gay man so it works right? Right????

    One of the great things about this monologue is that we get to see who the actors and directors (like Ava Duvernay) are that are total grumpy fucking prudes with no sense of humor who couldn't even fake a giggle to not seem out of touch with their audience.
