Saturday Night Live’s Secret Weapon Julio Torres Makes His Late-Night Stand-up Debut; Does a Good Job Being Funny

By

You might not know Julio Torres’s name (yet), but you know his work. Torres is responsible of some of the best SNL sketches of the year: “The Princess and the Curse,” “Through Donald’s Eyes,” “The Sink,” “Melania Moments,” “Diego Calls His Mom,” and, maybe the best sketch of the season, “Wells for Boys.” It’s rare for a first-season writer like Torres to not only get so many sketches on the show, but for them to all feel like they have a singular voice. That voice was on full display last night, as Torres made his late-night stand-up debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers. His set was as wonderful, hilarious, and gentle as you’d expect. It’s a nice set of comedy and it’s nice that he didn’t have to go far to tape it. SNL does do a show a week, after all.
