“I drank for attention,” Mulaney told Esquire back in 2019. “I was really outgoing, and then at 12, I wasn’t. I didn’t know how to act. And then I was drinking, and I was hilarious again.”
“I wasn’t a good athlete, so maybe it was some young male thing of ‘This is the physical feat I can do. Three Vicodin and a tequila and I’m still standing,'” he said. “Who’s the athlete now?”
Mulaney first became sober at the age of 23, according to the outlet.
“I went on a bender that weekend that was just, like, fading in and out of a movie,” he told Esquire. “It was just crazy. A weekend that was … there were … I’m never going to tell you. That’s mine. I didn’t kill anyone or assault anyone. But yeah, I was like, ‘You’re f*cking out of control.’ And I thought to myself, ‘I don’t like this guy anymore. I’m not rooting for him.'”
Most recently Mulaney joined “Late Night with Seth Meyers” as a writer and has made appearances on the show since.
