Mulaney took to Twitter to ensure the jilted Torontonians that he will, eventually, perform the show. In response to a tweet that asked, "When's the Toronto show that's been postponed 4 times being rescheduled for?" Mulaney wryly replied, "After the pandemic."
To recap, the show was initially scheduled for September 22, 2019, as part of JFL42, but was rescheduled for indeterminate reasons. (His other JFL42 shows went as planned on September 21.) The show was rescheduled for January 18, 2020, but was postponed day-of due to a winter storm.
The next date, February 28, was postponed so Mulaney could host Saturday Night Live. The postponement came with an apology from SNL boss Lorne Michaels, and Mulaney wore a Toronto shirt at the end of the show for some reason. Which leads us to the April 10 date, cancelled due to coronavirus-related physical distancing measures.
Stay tuned to see what gets the show pushed back a fifth time. Mulaney's latest special, John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch, was released on Netflix in December.
TORONTO Very bummed to report Sunday's show is POSTPONED to January 18. I'll be there Saturday night but have to get home right after. Wouldn't cancel it if I did not have to. I hope I see you in January. John— John Mulaney (@mulaney) September 20, 2019
TORONTO SHOW POSTPONED: Weather says no way. Venue says no way. It is safer for everyone to stay off the roads and out of the air. Your tickets will be honored for new date to follow. pic.twitter.com/Cl8rSvOPkU— John Mulaney (@mulaney) January 18, 2020

I am terribly sorry to move the show again.
It is now rescheduled for April 10. I will be there no matter what. I love you Toronto. Also I'm afraid of Lorne so I do what he says. pic.twitter.com/NIuZeWSmu6
