The Only John Mulaney Timeline You Need (Feat. Olivia Munn)

To describe the last year of John Mulaney's life as "eventful" would be an understatement. The comedian known for looking like a 13-year-old boy wearing his dad's suits spent the last year in and out of rehab, making headlines, and now he's having a baby with actor Olivia Munn. Of course, you know all of that already because otherwise you wouldn't be here with questions about the timeline of Mulaney's last year.

You're not alone. After an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Mulaney parsed out all of the enormous life changes he's been through since September 2020, some things we knew from headlines, others we didn't.

Per Mulaney himself, here's how the last year went down.

  • Went to rehab
  • Got out of rehab
  • Moved out of his home with his ex-wife
  • Hosted SNL
  • Relapsed "well after [SNL] goodnights"
  • Took a staff writer job at Late Night with Seth Meyers
  • Continued using drugs
  • Was hours late to his own intervention
  • Went to rehab, again, for two months
  • Went to sober living for a month and a half
  • Was by no means involved in the insurrection that occurred early January
  • Went to Los Angeles in the spring and met/started dating Olivia Munn
  • Is now expecting a baby with Munn
