In case you didn’t know, John Mulaney was a writer on “Saturday Night Live” from 2008 to 2013.
He says during that time, there were two guests that didn’t exactly have a positive reaction to his pitches . . . Josh Brolin and Mick Jagger.
John says, quote, “Josh said, ‘Well, this isn’t funny!’ I was writing something and I started to walk him through it. And he went, ‘Yeah, no, but that, that’s not funny!’ And it was so matter of fact, I wouldn’t even call it the worst . . .
“I found it very refreshing. It was early enough on Tuesday night that I didn’t proceed with it.”
His interaction with Mick was less of an exchange. The joke he wrote for Mick, was, quote, “Hey everyone, I’m Mick Jagger, so mothers lock up your daughters . . . or should I say, daughters lock up your mothers.”
John says all Mick said was, quote, “No, I don’t like that.”
