Who is John Mulaney's wife? John Mulaney has had multiple comedy specials on Netflix, with his newest one which premiered in December 2019.
The children's musical comedy, John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch, was inspired by multiple children's television programs, mixing parody and humor. In fact, the show has been praised for its ability to appeal to anyone of any age.
Eventually, he went on to create his own show, Mulaney. Although it was short-lived, he received a lot of notoriety for his comedic skills.
But who is John Mulaney's wife? Mulaney and Annamarie Tendler were married in 2014, and currently reside in New York City. She's also made an appearance in his episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, alongside Jerry Seinfeld, where Seinfeld accompanies Mulaney on an errand from Tendler.
But what do we know about her? She's much more than this comedian's wife, that's for sure!
1. She has an interesting job, and has written a few books.
Tendler works for a company called Silk Parlor and makes lampshades. She also works as a makeup artist and wrote a book all about it called The Daily Face. The book is full of tutorials on how to apply makeup in different, creative ways.
She also showcases her hair skills and published a book called Pin it!, giving women the rundown on how to work different hairstyles with bobby pins.
2. Their dog is an Instagram star.

3. They wanted their wedding to be different.
When the couple got married in 2014, Anna shared why they chose the beautiful Onteora Mountain House as their venue. She said:
"First and foremost, John and I wanted to get married in nature. Though we’d lived in New York City for 10 years the wedding ceremony just seemed like something that should take place within the peaceful surroundings of trees and mountains instead of concrete and skyscrapers. When John and I got out of the car and saw the sprawling vistas and towering trees we knew immediately we’d found our wedding site.
Plus, in the event of rain the ceremony would take place in the beautiful, wood pavilion with huge windows, so even indoors the incredible view would not be lost. We knew rain or shine it would be the perfect setting for the 1920’s inspired, woodland-deco bash we’d envisioned."
4. Tendler is a big part of Mulaney's stand-up.
The comedian makes his wife and the way they grew up a focal point of his stand-ups.
“My wife is Jewish. She’s a New York Jew. I did it! Now, I was raised Catholic. I don’t know if you can tell that from the everything about me. My wife is Jewish, I grew up Catholic, so we got married by a friend. Being married by a friend is a beautiful ceremony that alienates both families’ religions, while confusing the elderly people at the wedding,” he said in one of his specials.
5. She's very afraid of ghosts.
Tendler spoke about her fears in an interview, revealing:
"I was very scared to move into my new house. It was built in the 20s, which meant the chances of it being haunted seemed very high. I really didn’t want to move into a house, have a The Conjuring situation, and then need to move out. What a hassle. I’d lived in apartments since I was eighteen, so if I heard weird noises, I could blame it on my neighbors. If weird things happen in a stand alone house, you are straight up being haunted.
So, my first day there I went through the whole house with burning sage and you better believe I cleansed every single corner of every room. I also had a conversation with any spirits that may have still been living there. It went like this: Hi Ghosts! I’m not sure if you are there or not, but I need you to know that I live in this house now. If you are a nice, friendly ghost feel free to hang here, just please don’t do anything at night that creeps me out. I would really appreciate it if you would lay low. If you are an evil spirit, be gone and never come back! I have to say my house feels pretty ghost-free."
6. She claimed that Ben Affleck groped her.
After actress Hilarie Burton accused the actor of groping her and he apologized on Twitter, the makeup artist came out with the same claim. Tendler tweeted that the actor groped her at a 2014 Golden Globes after-party and she wanted an apology.
She wrote, "He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack.” Tendler said in a follow-up tweet, “I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back? Like most women in these situations I didn’t say anything, but I have thought a lot about what I’d say if I ever saw him again.” Affleck has yet to acknowledge the claim.
