“John has completed 60 days in rehab and now he’s in outpatient sober care,” the source explained. “He [Mulaney] is doing well, although he is still not ready to return to work.”
A source shared with the outlet that the comedian’s fans “know he’s struggled in the past with sobriety, he has talked about it openly. Unfortunately, he has struggled again during the pandemic.”
“He’s on board with his recovery, he’s not fighting against rehab,” the source added.
“I drank for attention,” Mulaney shared. “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 added. “Who’s the athlete now?”
