The Chicago area can't get enough of John Mulaney.

The 35-year-old comedian just played seven sold-out shows at the Chicago Theatre, and on Monday his production company announced he will return to the area to perform at 8 p.m. March 15 at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan.

And he isn't only in demand here. Since Mulaney began his current tour May 10, the Chicago-born performer has sold out 144 shows across the country and Canada.

Mulaney, who grew up in Lincoln Park, made his name as a writer on "Saturday Night Live" from 2008 to 2014, where he helped create characters such as "Stefon" and appeared regularly on "Weekend Update."

In 2015, Mulaney released his third standup special, a Netflix Original titled "The Comeback Kid" that was filmed at the Chicago Theatre.

From September 2016 to January 2017, Mulaney and frequent collaborator Nick Kroll starred in a play called "Oh, Hello" that ran for 138 performances at the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway.

Tickets for the March 15 show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Tickets will cost $29.50, $39.50, $49.50 and will be available for purchase at geneseetheatre.com/events. The theater is at 203 N. Genesee St.
