5. Kyle Mooney might be the future of the show’s pre-produced material
Mooney bombed somewhat on his first live appearance, but has since had the leads in two digital shorts that suggest a particular brand of low-key male-centric humor that stands in contrast to the exaggerated bravado of The Lonely Island days. It’s the type of attitude that doesn’t play well within the confines of sketch comedy, but works really well when executed in short-film formats. Many of the new cast members have extensive experience using editing technique to deliver comedy in a filmed format through mediums such as YouTube, but Mooney seems to have found a way to instantly translate that onto a national stage.
