In his Baby J Netflix special, John tells the tale of the night his friends staged an intervention for him. On the evening of Dec. 18, 2020, John was "invited over to a friend's apartment for dinner." Prior to arriving, he made two stops. One was to his drug dealer's house, but the other was to the hair department of Saturday Night Live because he was in need of a haircut. Presumably he did this because most businesses were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
By the time he showed up for "dinner," John was two hours late. He quickly realized the meal was a ruse. "There was no dinner. It was an intervention. For me," he explained in the special. After being denied a request to head to the bathroom, John reluctantly settled into the intervention. There were 12 people total, six of whom were in-person and six via Zoom. "It was a star-studded intervention. It was a good group ... This is really flattering in its own way," he said.
He mentioned Seth Meyers, Fred Armisen, and Nick Kroll, all of whom had "promised each other they wouldn't do bits." They kept that promise. That made things worse for Mulaney who said, "The funniest people in the world are staring at me, refusing to do jokes. It was maddening."

Two people involved in the intervention were Mulaney’s Big Mouth and Oh, Hello collaborator Nick Kroll and former SNL star Fred Armisen. “Fred Armisen was serious. Do you know how off-putting that is?” Mulaney says during the special. Over the course of his From Scratch comedy tour, Mulaney has identified other members of this group, including Bill Hader and Natasha Lyonne.
At the end of the special, Mulaney thanks 13 people in the credits: Fred, Berk, Mike, Bill, Erica, Nick, Natasha, Joe, Cara, David, Seth, Kevin, Marika. He writes “you saved my life” beneath their first names. “Marika” is likely Marika Sawyer, a producer and writer who worked with Mulaney both at SNL and on his 2019 Netflix special, John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch. “Mike” is likely Mike Birbiglia, a comedian who went to college with Mulaney and Kroll, and calls Mulaney one of his oldest friends. David Miner and Cara Masline—also executive producers on that latter special—may be included too, as may Mike Berkowitz, Mulaney’s comedy agent. 
In his first post-rehab interview back in September 2021 on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Mulaney thanked the host for staging his intervention. “Sitting here tonight, I’m so grateful to you and to everyone there for saving my life. That night, I was not grateful,” he said. “You guys saved me from drugs, and Olivia [Munn] and this baby have helped save me from myself in this early journey out of recovery. I don’t have a joke for that. I’m really grateful to you, buddy.”

#2. Why wasn't Pete Davidson at his intervention?

Mulaney agreed to go to rehab and left from the intervention while in possession of a shocking amount of narcotics. "I leave for rehab," Mulaney said. "I have on my person, a full baggie of 30 mg of Adderall, a full baggie of Xanax, 3 grams of cocaine, and $2,000 in cash. I had other plans that weekend." Upon arriving, he was stripped of his drugs and soon fell asleep.
Pete Davidson was not at the intervention because he was traveling but when he heard what happened, Pete began calling his friend. Apparently Pete is constantly changing his cell phone number so every time he got a new number, John would save it under a different famous person's name. On that night, he was saved as Al Pacino. The nurse shook John awake because who wouldn't want to know that Oscar winner Al Pacino was on the line?
In a September 2021 appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, John said he was in rehab for two months. He got out in February 2021 and stayed in a sober living facility for another month and a half. Thanks to his friends, John remains sober. In the special, he acknowledges his gratitude. "They intervened. They confronted me. They totally saved my life."

#3. Mulaney shared his feeling about the show

The comedian and former Saturday Night Live writer, who admitted himself to a Pennsylvania rehab facility to seek treatment for cocaine and alcohol addiction in December of 2020, says he was headed to a friend from college’s apartment for dinner when the intervention commenced. “I knew immediately it was an intervention. Do you know how bad of a drug problem you have to have if when you open a door and see people gathered, your first and immediate thought is, This is probably an intervention about my drug problem?” Mulaney jokes. 
His suspicions were further confirmed upon spotting Seth Meyers, whom he worked for as a Late Night staff writer in the later months of his relapse. Over the course of the special, Mulaney name-checks a few of the other famous faces in attendance—six in-person in New York, and six over Zoom in Los Angeles. “You may be thinking, Hey, if that was me, I would’ve been like, ‘If you’re so worried about me, how come you didn’t fly in?’” Mulaney quips. “Don’t worry, I said that several times.” is a website that provides you with sport updates and Entertainment news to brighten your day.
