John Mulaney is mourning fellow funnyman Matthew Perry, whose addiction journey he says he “really identified” with.
Mulaney, 41, spoke to Variety about regarding the “Friends” star’s battle for sobriety, which Perry detailed in his 2022 memoir “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.” Perry died on Oct. 28 on the age of 54.
“Addiction is only a disaster,” Mulaney told the outlet on Monday. “Life is sort of a wobbly table at a restaurant and also you pile all this s— on it, and it gets wobblier and wobblier and more unstable. Then drugs just kick the f—ing legs out from under the table.”
“I actually identified together with his story. I’m desirous about him rather a lot,” he added.
The previous “Saturday Night Live” author went to rehab in 2020 following a star-studded intervention over his addiction to cocaine and prescription pills.
“Going to rehab and a variety of other things had change into public knowledge, and I felt there was no technique to start doing stand-up again without going through this,” Mulaney told Variety about channeling his experiences into his Netflix stand-up special “Baby J,” which dropped in April.
He continued, “I also had rather a lot to say about it. It had been a particularly eventful time, and the goal from the start was to do that as funny as I could make it — not as impactful as I could make it, to not pause for dramatic effect.”
The Post reached out to Mulaney’s reps for comment.
Perry, meanwhile, died in the new tub of his Los Angeles home.
His official explanation for death is pending toxicology results, but he’s believed to have suffered cardiac arrest.
The “17 Again” star battled an alcohol and Vicodin addiction for a few years at the peak of his fame — and he reported completing 15 rehab stints throughout his life.
Last October, Perry claimed he was 18 months sober.
