John Mulaney and Nick Kroll’s Oh, Hello on Broadway, a two-man show that was once on Broadway, is now available to stream on Netflix.
The show originated Off-Broadway in December 2015, then moved to a road tour, and eventually Broadway’s Lyceum Theater, where it received positive critical attention and ran from October 2016 to January 2017. The characters originally became popular as a Comedy Central bit called “Too Much Tuna,” which was a recurring feature on The Kroll Show. The Oh, Hello guys also grew in popularity following an appearance on the IFC show Comedy Bang! Bang! with The Lonely Island.
Both Mulaney and Kroll have debuted solo standup specials on the platform in the past, and they’re working together on the animated Netflix series Big Mouth, due out later this year. This special, recorded at New York’s 92nd Street Y, is directed by Michael John Warren, who is best known for music documentaries about Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and others, as well as a handful of live Broadway recordings including Shrek the Musical and the 2008 revival of Rent.
In Oh, Hello, Mulaney plays George St. Geegland and Kroll plays Gil Faizon, a pair of rude, elderly friends who met while dodging the Vietnam draft in Toronto. I haven’t seen it but I believe there are some catch phrases, such as “too much tuna.”
Anyway, you can stream it now!
