TV Quote # 12: Mulaney, Pilot

John Mulaney. a struggling stand-up comic played by John Mulaney, goes to audition for a gig as gagwriter for Lou Cannon, a game show host played by Martin Short, who hires him, then says, “I want to tell you a little story. (pause, flourish, face to the audience) I’m 45 years old.” (Looks at Mulaney out of the corner of his eye, widens eyes, raises eyebrows slightly, smiles with only one corner of his mouth, works the audience wonderfully, with every gesture reinforcing the first look, which so clearly said, “Are you buying this?”)
