@spaceprincejulio, the actor-writer-director brings an otherworldly yet stately perspective to all of his work—and we just feel lucky he decided to grace Earth with his presence.Born in El Salvador, Torres moved to New York City to attend The New School and quickly became a staple of the Brooklyn alt-comedy scene.

After working on The Chris Gethard Show, he joined the writer’s room at Saturday Night Live where he leant his distinctive voice to some of the most beloved, queer-themed sketches in recent memory, like the unforgettable “Wells For Boys” and “The Actress,” in which Emma Stone stars as Deirde, who brings real commitment and gravitas to her role as “the woman who gets cheated on in a gay porn.”Since garnering attention for his unique SNL sketches, Torres has gone on to create a visually arresting hourlong comedy special, My Favorite Shapes, HBO’s instant-cult-comedy series, Los Espookys (which finally has a second season on the way), and now a wildly original children’s book, I Want To Be A Vase.
