John Mulaney: A lot of people know that I was a writer here at Saturday Night Live. What people may not know is I actually auditioned to be on the show a couple of times. It was 44 times.

Hi, John Mulaney. Six foot zero. 165 pounds in the[Cut to John Mulaney auditioning for the show in 1975]  morning! [John Mulaney makes funny face] This is my first and I assume my only audition for Saturday Night Live is it called? Very nice.

[Cut to John Mulaney auditioning for the show in1986]

This is my take on the breakfast club. It’s called the brunch club. Why do we have detention? I’ll take the French toast.

[Cut to Cecily Strong]

Cecily Strong: I tried to help him a couple of times with his audition but he got very defensive.

[Cut to John Mulane]

John Mulaney: How can you help me with my audition when you don’t even get what it is I am doing? Do you see my problem?

[Cut to John Mulaney auditioning for the show in1975]

I do impressions but I don’t try to do the voice. I’m Richard Nixon. I’m the president. I sold out and I’m a crook.

[Cut to Kenan Thompson]

Kenan Thompson: He never seems to age. I mean, is he like a fresh 31 or stay old 76?

This is Alex Trebek if he was speed dating– oh, this is Tom’s mustache. One second.

John Mulaney: [Cut to John Mulaney auditioning for the show in 1975]

I don’t want to get divorce.

[Cut to John Mulaney auditioning for the show in 1986]

Think about the kids.

[Cut to John Mulaney auditioning for the show in 2004]

I don’t want to get a divorce. It hasn’t changed.

[Cut to Kenan Thompson]

Kenan Thompson: The guy who wants to get a divorce–

[John Mulaney comes in]

John Mulaney: The guy who doesn’t want to get a divorced.

Kenan Thompson: Hey, what’s up man?

John Mulaney: Nothing man. Good to see you.

Kenan Thompson: You too.

[Cut to John Mulaney]

John Mulaney: I remember one time Lauren pulled me aside. He said, “We don’t need whatever it is you are.”

[Cut to John Mulaney auditioning for the show in 1986]

I’m sick of bar-tending here at Cheers. Some days I just want to stop.

[Cut to John Mulaney auditioning for the show in 2004]

Because you are the weakest ling. Good bye. I would love to be on the show.

[Cut to John Mulaney]

I think if I play my cards right and host well for a second time, I’m going to get another audition.
