Earlier this week it was confirmed that a monologue delivered by John Mulaney on Saturday Night Live last year was formally investigated by the US Secret Service.

The stand-up comedian, who voices Andrew Glouberman in Big Mouth and writes for Saturday Night Live, first spoke about the inquiry last year when a joke he delivered on the show in February 2020 was deemed to be about former US president Donald Trump.

As reported in Rolling Stonethe Secret Service has released a 27-page file on the incident in which it stated that Mulaney “made inappropriate statements regarding President Trump on Saturday Night Live”.

The report revealed that the investigation was opened on March 1, 2020, just one day following Mulaney’s appearance on the show.

It stated: “On 3/1/20…[it was] discovered that a monologue performed by John Mulaney on a Saturday Night Live was gaining considerable social media attention” later adding that “although no direct threats were made, due to the popularity, it is likely concerned citizens will report this”.
