Manly Monday: Georgetown Alumni Facial Hair Review

manlymondays

Movember is upon us. And if “moisture is the essence of wetness and wetness is the essence of beauty,” then facial hair is definitely the essence of manliness. Plus you can celebrate Movember to raise money and awareness for a good cause. With that in mind, let’s take a moment to appreciate some of the most famous beards in Georgetown history.

Patrick Ewing (CAS ’85)

Although we generally associate handlebar mustaches with creepy neighbors and fictional 1970s television broadcast teams in the greater San Diego area, Ewing pulls off this ‘stache with pizazz. If you’re also a Hall-of-Fame-caliber basketball player, then you might want to consider growing out a handlebar mustache. Otherwise, we’d advise you to stay away.

Nick Kroll (COL ’01)

Kroll has tested out a few different beards and mustaches over the years, everything from the classic lazy beard to the 80s-style creeper ‘stache. His Larry Bird mustache might be somewhat ahistorical, but at least it’s manly.

John Mulaney (COL ’04)

A pupil of Nick Kroll, Mulaney has dominated the comedy circuit in recent years, but he hasn’t quite mastered the facial hair. Maybe someday, John.

Bill Clinton (SFS ’68)

You may know him as a polished former President and potential “First Gentleman,” but Bubba used to showcase a shaggy beard in his college days. For those you hoping to follow in Bill’s footsteps, consider growing out your facial hair. Plus, it might help you attract a smart hippie like Hillary.

Happy Movember everybody!

Your Friend John Mulaney Has a New Show

mulaneyJohn Mulaney, who graduated from the College in 2004, has a self-titled show that is premiering tonight at 9:30 p.m. on Fox. Sure you know that Bill Clinton and Bradley Cooper attended Georgetown, but you’re only a true Hoya if you know this guy, our own lanky little gem.

Prior to working on this show, Mulaney wrote for “Saturday Night Live” where he co-created the character Stefon with actor Bill Hader. Whoa. SPICY. Mulaney also does incredible stand-up. You must see his skit, New in Town. Here’s a short clip of it.

Whenever I watch this clip, I wonder if the perfume story happened somewhere on N Street or in Burleith:

So he’s hysterical and he makes us proud to be Hoyas. And now he has a show called “Mulaney.” The Twitter-verse is chattering, including two former Hoyas. Mike Birbiglia (COL ’00), a big-shot comic in his own right, weighed in:

Nick Kroll (COL ’01), a comedian and actor who wrote for the Chapelle Show, played “the douche” on “Parks and Rec,” Ruxin on “The League,” and created and stars in the “Kroll Show” (along with Mulaney), also chimed in:


We’re glad to see funny Hoyas sticking together and hustling the world for all it’s worth.

If “Mulaney” is anywhere close to being as funny as Stefon or the comedian’s stand up, we’ll all be living the #blessed life. Just make sure to let everyone know that this dude is a Hoya. John Mulaney is the Hoya we all wish we could be. Congrats, you little fat girl.
