Julio Torres in Conversation with Fred Armisen: My Favorite Shapes

Julio Torres and Fred Armisen

What made SNL’s Julio Torres turn from comedy to … geometry?

Join the comedian and self-described “Space Prince” in conversation with fellow SNL alum Fred Armisen about his hilariously offbeat new comedy special, My Favorite Shapes—an exploration of, well, just that. Torres discusses how he conceived of the idea for the show—in which a plexiglass square, a triangle, an oval that wishes it were a circle, a self-conscious cactus and other assorted objects serve as jumping-off points for stories, anecdotes and possibly some of the weirdest jokes you’ll ever hear. Torres will discuss his work on SNL, HBO’s Los Espookys and much more.
