Now that his time on SNL is over, it’s high time we round up some of his very best characters and performances while on the show. Whether he’s playing a ripped version of himself or comedian Bruce Chandling, these are the moments we couldn’t stop laughing at.


“Thanksgiving Baking Championship” – Four contestants compete on a Thanksgiving-themed bake-off, and Ralph (Kyle Mooney) is the clear winner.

“OK, and the white stuff is like re-entering the atmosphere?”

“Yes ma’am, and the spunk is icing!”


“Ted Cruz Sesame Street Cold Open” – Joe Rogan (Pete Davidson) has some questionable meds for Big Bird (Mooney).

“Why would a bird take horse medicine?”


“Viral Apology Video” – The Prank Posse take things too far…then their apology video blows up.

“I even lost my endorsements from Samurai Vapes and Cinnabon, and that’s what hurts the most.”


“Kyle’s Holiday” – Real-life Kyle Mooney learns the real meaning of Christmas from Billie Eilish.


“Are you crying?”

“No, no. I was just thinking how cool it is that Santa does it all in one night. Guy’s a monster.”


“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.

“OK, I can work with that.”


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


“The squad is in the house! That’s me, Timothée Chalamet, Robert Pattinson, and the two guys from the Sonic commercials.”


“Dancer” – I still think Kyle beat Issa Rae in this dance-off.


“Oh, Mr. The Rapper — er, Chance.”


“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.”


“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.”


“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.


“No, it’s not supposed to be a religious thing — it’s about my dad.”


“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.


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

“Kick…my butt.”


“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.”


“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!”


“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!”


“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.


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


“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.


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


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


“I’m Spencer, and his friends like me more than they like him.”


“Kyle and Friends” – Kyle tries to make friends and gets some wise words from Regina King.


“Oh no, I guess I’ll have to host! And as you know, everybody wants to be friends with the host.”


“Beers” – In another ’80s sitcom parody, Mario (Kyle) and Josh (Beck) confront cousin C.J. (Larry David) about his beer addiction.


“It’s your cousin CJ. He’s been drinking a lot and throwing chairs at me.”


“The Fight” – Chris Fitzpatrick (Kyle) fights Andy Rydell (Beck Bennett). If you want more Chris Fitzpatrick, check out Beck and Kyle’s pre-SNL videos.


“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.'”


“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.


“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.'”


“Awkward Flirts” – Two apartment residents flirt with each other until it becomes painful to watch. Then, the ending is surprisingly sweet.


“Oh, hey, Sarah. Oh no, I got poop on my underwear.”


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


“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 ( redirects to NBC’s webpage for SNL.


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


“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.


“PottyPM: It’s just for guys, and girls can sleep on the toilet.”


“What’s My Name?” – Kyle (playing every character in this skit) forgets the name of a party guest.


“You put me on the spot. That’s so weird.”


“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.


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


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