Taran Killam is quite possibly a superhero. He performs crazy-funny sketches as a cast member of "Saturday Night Live" ("Boy Dance Party," anyone?), writes comic books ("The Illegitimates" just came out), and found the time to discuss answers to many probing questions — such as the "SNL" sketch that got him noticed — on our Twitter chat, @YahooComedy.
Killam dished on his breakout "SNL" sketch: Not surprisingly, "Merryville Brothers" has made its creepy, comical mark.
He may be a rising star, but he doesn't forget his first performance ever on the show. Adorable. @emilylarsen1 asked what he remembers from that episode.
And the characters that are his faves to perform run the gamut, from scary-funny to actually kind of scary:
From the topic of favorite characters, Killam went on to reveal … his favorite hairpiece.
When the funny guy isn't dreaming up comic looks, he's reading comic books — or creating them. @MadeleineMae3 asked about his favorite comic book hero.
But there's no contest when it comes to who else he'd want to perform with. @RainbowEyes013 wanted to know about his dream host. Hard to argue with his answer. @nbcsnl: Hint, hint.
"Saturday Night Live" airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
