Here’s Why SNL’s First Latino Writer Apologized Again And Again During His ‘Late Night’ Spot

Food is no joke around most Latino households. At every family reunion, we all bring our own dishes and end up walking away with more leftovers than we can carry. And you can be sure that meat is one of the stars of almost every dish. Vegan is dirty word you don’t say in front my parents or abuela — or anyone for that matter.

On a recent episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, Salvadoran comedian Julio Torres talked about being vegan.

A writer for Saturday Night Live, Torres understands that satirizing oneself is the best way to get the laughs.

Torres gave the audience a little insight into what makes being vegan so difficult.

Anyone who is vegan or has a vegan friend can probably relate to Torres. Being a vegan among meat eaters can make for a difficult dining experience.

Torres then answered the question he gets all the time.

Torres then clarified.

Torres followed up with a deadpan delivery of “I miss my friends and I miss my family.” ?

Torres’ really packs a ton of humor into his soft-spoken delivery, so do yourself a favor and watch the performance here!

Torres covered several more topics that are all worth a listen and a laugh. The audience clearly loved his deadpan, soft-spoken delivery which really sells his jokes. For a someone who was once almost deported, it’s great to see how far he’s come.

Valentine’s Day Is Right Around The Corner And Julio Torres Has Some Ideas On What You Should Be Buying

Comedian Julio Torres has skills for picking out Christmas presents and coming up with the best Halloween costumes. So it should come at no surprise that Julio has also mastered the art of Valentine’s Day.  The “Saturday Night Live” writer appeared on “The Tonight Show” to inform Jimmy Fallon, and all of us, how to pick out the perfect perfume for that special someone on the most important and stress-inducing day of the year: Valentine’s Day.

Instead of giving chocolates or flowers on Valentine’s Day, Julio says perfumes are the best way to go. Here are some of the perfumes Torres recommends for that special somebody on the special day.

“The Silent Scream”

For a lover that loves to sigh and never tells you what’s wrong no matter how many times you ask. All you can do is wait for the outburst.

“Should I … Okay”

This perfume is only intended for people who want to help but don’t. You know, like when you see someone drop something and act like you are going to do something but stay where you are.

“Brofume”

The busted GatorAde bottle is a nice touch that really let’s you know who this is intended for.

“But Who Is SHE”

“It’s inspired by your uncle’s new wife.” Nuff said.

“ALL CAPS”

This perfume is made for moms on Facebook and we love them so much for their enthusiasm. Might as well get them something to thank them on Valentine’s Day.

“FLOTUS Whisper”

It’s kind of like Gretchen Wieners’ hair but it is only full of Melania Trump’s secrets. Things like, her longing to be rescued and that kind of stuff.

Here’s the hilarious skit.

“Saturday Night Live” writer and “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” correspondent Julio Torres was on deck this week to give last-minute Halloween costume ideas. The stand-up comedian, who goes by the title “Space Prince” and is fond of diamonds and crystals, was on hand to give Fallon some helpful advice. Torres is behind some of the most unique SNL sketches of the last couple of years, including “Wells for Boys,” “The Sink,” and the Lin-Manuel Miranda starring sketch “Diego Calls His Mom.”

In the video above, Torres’ costume suggestions get pretty abstract, from “The Lost City of Atlantis” to an “Email Forward from your Dad,” leaving Fallon both confused and gasping for air from laughter. It’s pretty brilliant stuff, and only something that could come from the mind of a crystal loving Space Prince. Watch the video above to ponder whether or not you want to be a “Secret” or a “Rumor” for Halloween.

Check out this trailer from his stand-up special on Comedy Central.
