The Comedy Network airs an excellent stand-up comedy special on February 18th at 9. John Mulaney New In Town features original biographical and solid observational stand-up. New In Town is an almost perfectly clean show after the first couple of minutes.

There are many strong bits in this show. The first is about Mulaney’s school experience. Another highlight is a routine on politically correct language that also nails Law & Order SVU and the Ice T character.

Mulaney’s girlfriend bit is made by a quick all-women version of Oceans Eleven and a surreal story about the benefits of having a girlfriend. There is a really good airline joke slipped in there.

The title track is very funny but oddly does not really fit with the rest of the show.

The show closes very strong with a cautionary tale about lying to your doctor to get a prescription.

Unfortunately, this version of John Mulaney New In Town does not include the short bit about having lawyer parents.

Tune in to The Comedy Network February 18 at 9 p.m. and you’ll get a really good hour of stand-up.
