The stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and producer, John Mulaney, is set to host "Saturday Night Live" on April 14. After writing for "SNL" for over six years, the multi-talented Chicago native is coming back to "SNL" to be a host just before his new Netflix special, "Kid Gorgeous at Radio City," premieres on May 1. This is a great way to build hype for his up and coming Netflix special.

While tickets to his "Kid Gorgeous at Radio City" special have already sold out, this is just the first of several specials from Mulaney that are on the way. Clearly, enthusiasm for the witty comedian is high.

After posting "Oh boy" on Twitter with regards to his upcoming "SNL" appearance, more than 39,000 people have retweeted it proving that there is a lot of love for this comedian. The week before Mulaney's "SNL" performance, "Black Panther's" Chadwick Boseman will be hosting so the bar will definitely be set high.

Check out Mulaney's other work

After starting on "SNL" as a staff writer back in 2008, Mulaney has come a long way since then. Most people may remember him from his critically acclaimed comedy special, "The Comeback Kid," which premiered back in 2015. His credits also include performances on many popular talk shows including "Conan," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "Comedy Central Presents," and more.

There is something so beautiful about returning to the place that helped get him started after making so many steps forward over the years. After working for so many years behind the scenes as a writer for "SNL," many people should be excited to see how he will perform on camera as the host.

Mulaney's previous work on camera

Mulaney had his own TV series at one point, self-titled "Mulaney." Although it didn't last more than one season it is still great for a laugh or two. Over the past few years, he could also be found guest-starring on several TV series including "Portlandia," "Crashing," and "Big Mouth."

From writing to stand-up comedy to acting and more this multi-talented performer has a lot of upcoming work to showcase.

There is always a lot of stress on the shoulders of whoever hosts "SNL," but it is likely that this "SNL" genius will be able to make it a memorable event. The musical guest that night will be Jack White, who has performed on the show a couple times, once as a member of the White Stripes back in 2002 and once as himself in 2012. Tune in to "SNL" to see a great show with incredible performers on April 14.
