John Mulaney’s Hair Has the Internet Talking—and Netflix is Listening

John Mulaney is attempting to disrupt the late-night formula with Everybody’s in L.A., a fascinatingly chaotic fever dream of a live series that shows you what happens when you give an innovative comedian at the top of his game the chance to experiment with the television medium. But all anyone wants to talk about is Mulaney’s hair.

Over on X (formerly Twitter), the chatter surrounding Mulaney’s new center-parted longer ‘do is near-deafening. “Beautiful” and “orgasmic” are just two of the ways his locks have been described, while others have likened the comedian to everyone from Clark Kent to Jason Bateman

But where others might see a distraction, Netflix is seeing opportunity. The streamer is sticking to the old adage that any publicity is good publicity by leaning into the internet’s apparent fascination with Mulaney’s mane in a valiant effort to help drive viewers to his very limited series.

On Monday evening, Mulaney posted a photo of a new Netflix billboard to his Instagram. Situated on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard, the ad is a simple bit of text that reads “John Mulaney’s hair is different now. See it live.”

Everybody’s in L.A. kicked off on Friday, May 3 with Jerry Seinfeld, Will Ferrell and St. Vincent among the guests. Monday night’s episode featured Jon Stewart, Andy Samberg, Gabriel Iglesias, Mae Martin, and Warren G. 

David Letterman, Sarah Silverman, Bill Hader, Patton Oswalt, Nate Bargatze, Ronny Chieng, Hannah Gadsby, and Cedric The Entertainer are all set to be upcoming guests with music courtesy of Weezer, Beck, Los Lobos, and more.

Everybody’s in L.A. is streaming nightly on Netflix, live, at 10 p.m. ET through Friday, May 10.
