Here’s the Very Weird, Very Wonderful Trailer for Kyle Mooney’s ‘Brigsby Bear’


Kyle Mooney has been quietly building a name for himself as one SNL‘s weirder, more idiosyncratic talents. He doesn’t have Kate McKinnon’s scene-stealing charisma or Kenan Thompson’s gung-ho energy, but Mooney infects every character with his own, slightly bizarre energy. Even when he’s playing Random Bystander #1, he adds kooky wrinkles that makes them far funnier than they should be. And apparently, he’s got grander designs. He’s written and directed a movie that made waves at Sundance, and looks to be cut from the same odd charm that Mooney brings to his SNL characters.

We don’t know much about the plot, though it apparently involves some sort of faux children’s show that may or may not actually exist, and also stars Claire Danes, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh (the Veep comedian, not The Blaze guy) and Mark Hamill himself. No firm release date yet but if early word is anything to go by, it’ll be one to watch.
