Comedian and “Space Prince” Julio Torres (Los Espookys; Saturday Night Live) examines his favorite shapes — yes, that’s right — which include a plexiglass square, an oval that wishes he were a circle, a self-conscious cactus and a Ferrero Rocher chocolate. Each of his shapes contains multitudes, which Torres explores with fantastical flamingoes and unacquainted anecdotes.
My Favorite Shapes by Julio Torres is directed by Dave McCary, who has collaborated with Torres throughout his career, including on the critically acclaimed SNL sketches “Papyrus” and “Wells for Boys.” Taped before a live audience at Vaguely in Brooklyn, The special is executive produced by Fred Armisen and Lorne Michaels.
“I just need to show my shapes. That’s all this is for.”
