The Best Kyle Mooney SNL Sketches Of All Time


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.

7.

“Baby Yoda” – They should make Baby Yoda talk more on The Mandalorian — he seems cool as hell.

10.

“Kyle’s Transformation” – The world wasn’t ready for Buff Kyle, and my hunch is that’s why he’s leaving the show.

“Sorry, Chloe, I’m such a spaz. But that’s just me I guess. I love hiking and my family.”

11.

“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.

“Now all I need is a hot celebrity girlfriend, and that’s fine by me.”

12.

“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.

13.

“The Grocery Rap” – Three buddies make a music video in a grocery store, but they refuse to wear masks.

14.

“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.

“Hey man, quit talking to my girlfriend like that! I’m gonna—”

“Kick…my butt.”

16.

“Bad Boys” – If it’s a sketch parodying ’80s sitcoms, it’ll probably have Mooney and Beck.

“I called the park. They’ve been closed for two hours.”

17.

“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.

“This keyboard is a wild animal tonight! Yow!”

18.

“Bruce Chandling” – It takes a special talent to commit to a character whose bit is that they aren’t funny.

“The start of the show is the big meal, right? Course I’m a corn on the cob guy — you heard about this? You seen this? I mean I can’t get enough of the stuff!”

19.

“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.


NBC / youtube.com

“Tony, don’t do this. Do not do this!”

20.

“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.

21.

“Bits” – Cut to: a friend desperately trying to keep the bit going.

23.

“Brothers” – This sketch is basically the movie Step Brothers, but Aidy Bryant and Cecily Strong can’t stop laughing.

“What you can’t see here is how scared Andy was. He kept whispering: ‘Please don’t embarrass me in front of the entire school. I am just a pawn of conformity, and you listen to the best music.'”

27.

“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.


NBC / giphy.com

“My goal here is for people all over the world to look at me and just go like, ‘Wait a second…that’s hip-hop.'”

29.

“Love and Leslie” – Leslie Jones and Kyle fall in love, despite Kyle’s jealousy of Colin Jost.

30.

“Scooter Rineholdt” – President of Milk Distribution Scooter Rineholdt passionately defends milk. And interestingly, the URL Mooney gives for the source of his milk-related news (www.milkdaddy.net/important-news) redirects to NBC’s webpage for SNL.


NBC / youtube.com

“Am I OK? My company’s going fricking bankrupt, and my wife’s porking the mayor. This fricking sucks!”

31.

“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.

NBC / youtube.com

“I guess I just didn’t have it tonight.”


NBC / youtube.com

“I’m not usually into church or gods or whatever, but I thought the ceremony was super gangster.”
