TRANSCRIPT Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: Julio Torres on SNL, Los Espookys and more

Julio Torres is a powerhouse. He’s a comedian, actor and former writer for Saturday Night Live where his sketches brought a touch of magic to the show’s standard fare. When we talked, he’d just released his first comedy special My Favorite Shapes. It’s a little sideways from what you’d expect. Just like his HBO show Los Espookys —a horror-comedy that starred Julio alongside Fred Armisen, Ana Fabrega, and more. The show’s second and – tragically – final season aired late last year on HBO. It’s one of our favorites, so we figured we’d send off Los Espookys by revisiting our 2019 conversation with Julio.
