Episode 237: Kyle Mooney

Download

Saturday Night Live cast member Kyle Mooney came by Going Off Track to discuss growing up listening to pop-punk, why he’s so obsessed with eighties entertainment and what he thinks of reboots. (Spoiler alert: Kyle wishes he had written the “Jem And The Holograms” movie and we agree.) We also discuss the time Mooney saw Coolio, Vanilla Ice and Salt N’ Pepper perform as an impressionable youth, the John Stamos/Beach Boys connection and plenty of other high-brow topics that will change the way you view pop culture forever. “It’s always weird for me to be in New York when it’s not a show week, it’s kind of special to me and unique because I don’t get to do it all the time,” Mooney, who spends a lot of time on the West coast and spent all summer in Utah shooting a movie, admits. Luckily we can catch him on SNL every week where his videos alongside his college pal and co-star Beck Bennett have become viral sensations.
