  • The marvellously droll John Mulaney is in top form alongside a cohort of suitably arch mini-mes in this satirical take on old-fashioned children's TV specials.

  • Who knew a childless, 30-something white man from Chicago would be one of the most reliable soldiers in the fight against toxic masculinity and a champion for weird and wonderful kids everywhere?

    January 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Mulaney offers counterprogramming, a quirky variety show with a modern Broadway sensibility. At its best, and most fully realized, it feels like a program made by unusually sophisticated, precocious children for their friends.

  • "John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch" will be remembered, not just for its goodness, but for the peculiarity of its goodness, too.

    December 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch," a holiday surprise, comes as close as anything Mulaney's done to explaining his appeal and outlook.

    December 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • While plugging into a potent strain of existential humor, The Sack Lunch Bunch remains earnest in its execution and reverent toward its inspirations.
