The album of the comedy special of the year is here at last! And by "year", we mean 2023! Twas almost a year ago that John Mulaney's Baby J debuted on Netflix, to instant acclaim. Come May 24th, 2024, the Emmy-winning Comeback Kid himself comes back yet again with the vinyl & CD release of Baby J: his blunt, brilliantly quotable, Emmy award-winning stand-up special.

Baby J takes the form of a wide-ranging conversation between John Mulaney, a kid in the balcony named Henry, and the rest of the sold-out crowd at Boston’s Symphony Hall. And now, you! John dominates the chat, of course — and while his cautionary tales are a bit too convulsive to be functionally preventative, you probably aren’t here to be cautioned. So have at it!

Baby J appears on Drag City as both a CD and double-LP, with their gatefold sleeves emblazoned with the image of our hero doing what he does best — no, not that! Stand-up comedy! If it were a poster, we'd suggest you hang it on your wall with all your other iconoclastic anti-heroes. But this is the gatefold of the album jacket, so... don't do that. Just open it, and play it. On your turntable, or your CD player, we have both.

Don't miss the chance to get your hands on the comedy album of the year - and by year, we mean 2024 this time. John Mulaney's Baby J is here on physical formats May 24th, 2024.
