This according to Late Night With Seth Meyers producer Mike Shoemaker, who says that the comedian has joined the late-night show as a staff writer.

"John Mulaney likes to work so this week he officially joined Late Night With Seth Meyers as a staff writer. I hope he stays for 100 years but I will settle for 'as long as John wants,'" Shoemaker wrote in a tweet on Thursday.

Shoemaker is of course making light of the fact that between his duties as a standup comedian, producer, writer, and actor, Mulaney is not short of work these days. (He's currently developing a sequel to his adorably goofy 2019 kids’ special, John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch, and a new season of Netflix's Big Mouth, which he produces and lends his vocal talents to, is coming soon.)

In addition to announcing Mulaney's new gig, Shoemaker shared a video of the "rookie" late-night writer's first sketch, in which the comedian and Meyers discuss the role of "ghosts" in the 2020 election.

Watch the paranormally hilarious video below.
