Kyle Mooney’s final SNL appearance was Saturday, May 21, along with Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, and Aidy Bryant.
Kyle Mooney is a national treasure. From his early work on YouTube with the sketch group Good Neighbor to his countless characters on Saturday Night Live, he always brings his A-game.
“Thanksgiving Baking Championship” – Four contestants compete on a Thanksgiving-themed bake-off, and Ralph (Kyle Mooney) is the clear winner.
“Ted Cruz Sesame Street Cold Open” – Joe Rogan (Pete Davidson) has some questionable meds for Big Bird (Mooney).
“Kyle’s Holiday” – Real-life Kyle Mooney learns the real meaning of Christmas from Billie Eilish.
“Subway Churro” – In a sketch where every character gets a minute-long song, leave it to Kyle Mooney to get about 10 seconds.
“March of the Suitors” – The only word Mooney’s character seemed built off of was the word “sniveling,” and he nailed it.
“Kyle’s Transformation” – The world wasn’t ready for Buff Kyle, and my hunch is that’s why he’s leaving the show.
“A New Kyle” – Similar to Buff Kyle, Blonde Kyle is yet another reinvention of his entire personality. This time, he steals Pete Davidson’s look and friends.
“Dad” – They said audiences weren’t ready for a modern retelling of the classic ballad “Cat’s in the Cradle.” Kyle Mooney proved them wrong.
“The Grocery Rap” – Three buddies make a music video in a grocery store, but they refuse to wear masks.
“Poetry Lovers” – You know a sketch is going to be good when it’s Kyle and Beck Bennett. Throw in Sarah Silverman, and you’ve got gold.
“Dive Bar” – Kyle doesn’t have a huge part in this sketch, but every time he chimes in he throws off Kenan Thompson and Ryan Gosling’s groove by making them laugh.
“Bruce Chandling” – It takes a special talent to commit to a character whose bit is that they aren’t funny.
“Christmas Bar” – A very Brooklyn Christmas bar sees Tony (not rich or nothing, just volunteers at a home for the elderly) and Jerry (loves his deaf sister) fighting over Jessica.
“The House” – David thinks they’re going to watch a movie at the theaters, but Brian thought they were going to watch one at the house. This could be drama, people.
“Brothers” – This sketch is basically the movie Step Brothers, but Aidy Bryant and Cecily Strong can’t stop laughing.
“Beers” – In another ’80s sitcom parody, Mario (Kyle) and Josh (Beck) confront cousin C.J. (Larry David) about his beer addiction.
“Kyle vs. Kanye” – Kyle challenges Kanye West to a rap battle. Also, Kyle won, because the challenge was to freestyle, and Ye just sung a song from Life of Pablo.
“Awkward Flirts” – Two apartment residents flirt with each other until it becomes painful to watch. Then, the ending is surprisingly sweet.
“PottyPM” – The PottyPM is the perfect solution for going to the bathroom in the middle of the night. But apparently it wasn’t designed with women in mind.
“What’s My Name?” – Kyle (playing every character in this skit) forgets the name of a party guest.
“Del Taco Shoot” – A director (Adam Driver) and executive (Beck) tear into a commercial actor (Kyle) over a line reading.
“Jheri’s Place” – After a sketch doesn’t land well (and Kyle makes a bold choice that doesn’t pay off), the cast fields questions from reporters about what went wrong.
