I loved this. It was so funny and also even touching, but mostly just funny. I went into it thinking it was a series and then when it kept going on I realized it was just a one-off, which makes sense since I don't know how he'd continue the schtick for several "episodes."

I had no idea who Julio Torres was at the time I watched this (have since rectified) and i laughed so hard I choked and had to run into the kitchen and gulp water. My friends complain I almost never laugh out loud at things they’re doubled over about, and I wished I could have shown them my reaction. This was just genius and not only hilarious but warm and weird and quietly affirming. I was dying to show it to my friend and when I started to talk she burst out with the title—it turned out we’d both been adoring it and assuming no one else we knew would appreciate it.

Los Espookys introduced me to Julio Torres, who I hadn't realized was the author of some very funny SNL bits when he was a writer there. I enjoyed this special quite a lot.
