It’s always nice when someone in the LGBTQ community hits the big leagues, so a big congrats to comic Julio Torres for getting hired on as a writer for Saturday Night Live.

But while the Brooklyn-based comic may take pride in his heritage and being out, much of his material is focused on being a space-prince. Because of course it is.

“I’ve never been good or too interested in making jokes about or having material about being Latino or being gay or any of those things,” Torres said in an interview with Brokelyn. “They’re very much part of who and what I am, but I feel like the one sort of label that I do feel a strong creative connection with…is the idea of being from elsewhere.”

Below find some samplings of Torres’ standup on YouTube, and look forward to some of his signature zaniness on SNL:
