In early May, he announced his return to the stage with a five-day performance residency called “John Mulaney: From Scratch.” It’s taking place at Manhattan’s City Winery from May 10 to May 14. The shows sold out within minutes.

Mulaney has been open about his struggles with drinking in past comedy specials. “I don’t drink. I used to drink, then I drank too much, and I had to stop. That surprises a lot of audiences, because I don’t look like someone who used to do anything,” he shared in his 2012 special “New In Town.”

In an Esquire cover story, the Emmy-winner said his drinking started as a teen and it led him to try cocaine and prescription drugs.

“I wasn’t a good athlete, so maybe it was some young male thing of ‘This is the physical feat I can do. Three Vicodin and a tequila and I’m still standing,’” he said. “Who’s the athlete now?”

Mulaney said he first became sober at the age of 23 after going on a weekend “bender.”
