John Mulaney has the range. He has the best analogy for Trump, his joke about aging out of pop music still haunts me, and his obsession with his dog is one of the least annoying in Hollywood. So it makes sense that his jokes are resonating all over the internet. Comparing your niche fandom to John Mulaney jokes is the new comparing your niche fandom to popular vines. Anja Reese started this last year with John Mulaney as Musicals. This year, Twitter user @ayrbee started a thread of 2000s pop punk/emo bands as John Mulaney jokes, and the movement has really picked up steam.

Classical music!

And pro wrestling.
