Nick Kroll and John Mulaney know exactly who they want to perform "Oh, Hello" next
By most people’s standards, Oh, Hello might not be suitable for kids. But if you’re Nick Kroll and John Mulaney — hey, why not?
The comedians — who created and starred as George St. Geegland (Mulaney) and Gil Faizon (Kroll) in the Broadway show about two old and obscene roommates living on the Upper West Side — recently spoke with reporters about Oh, Hello and its Netflix spinoff, and they revealed that they’ve already decided who to license the show to next: High-school students — although they wouldn’t be opposed to a middle-school production.
The two also joked about high school productions and how most schools try to have the largest cast possible for the sake of inclusion — something that simply wouldn’t work with Oh, Hello, as George and Gil are despised by all except themselves.
While that’s their current plan for licensing the show, there’s always the hope that their understudies, John Slattery (Gil Faizon) and Jon Hamm (George St. Geegland) could *finally* give Oh, Hello their best shot. Meanwhile we can continue to rewatch Oh, Hello on Broadway a thousand times on Netflix.
