John Mulaney Still Intends to Perform in Toronto After Postponing Show Four Times

Ticketholders have been waiting since last September

Last night (April 10) was supposed to mark the long-awaited conclusion to the epic saga that is John Mulaney's infamously postponed Toronto show. Of course, with all live events cancelled to slow the COVID-19 pandemic, it was postponed yet again, for the fourth time.

Mulaney took to Twitter to ensure the jilted Torontonians that he will, eventually, perform the show. In response to a tweet that asked, "When's the Toronto show that's been postponed 4 times being rescheduled for?" Mulaney wryly replied, "After the pandemic."

To recap, the show was initially scheduled for September 22, 2019, as part of JFL42, but was rescheduled for indeterminate reasons. (His other JFL42 shows went as planned on September 21.) The show was rescheduled for January 18, 2020, but was postponed day-of due to a winter storm.

The next date, February 28, was postponed so Mulaney could host Saturday Night Live. The postponement came with an apology from SNL boss Lorne Michaels, and Mulaney wore a Toronto shirt at the end of the show for some reason. Which leads us to the April 10 date, cancelled due to coronavirus-related physical distancing measures.

Stay tuned to see what gets the show pushed back a fifth time. Mulaney's latest special, John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch, was released on Netflix in December.
