John Mulaney is one of the more well-known figures in comedy today. Now, the star is taking time to work on himself as he reportedly checks himself into rehab for cocaine and alcohol abuse.
"I drank for attention...I was really outgoing, and then at twelve, I wasn't. I didn't know how to act. And then I was drinking, and I was hilarious again." Mulaney first round of sobriety came when he was 23.
In recent months, Mulaney has appeared on several talk shows, including writing and hosting for Saturday Night Live.
As the star seeks treatment, supporters of his are taking to social media to provide words of encouragement.
