'SNL's' Taran Killam Answers Your Twitter Questions

'SNL's' Taran Killam Answers Your Twitter Questions

Taran Killam and host John Goodman on 'Saturday Night Live.'

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.

.@YahooComedy I remember after my first Merryville sketch @bibbymoynihan said he could tell I was going to be around for a while. #AskSNL

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:

.@YahooComedy I love performing Eddie, Jebidiah and I got to do a Brasky. Pretty sweet. #AskSNL

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.

@MadeleineMae3 I've had phases. 1st Wolverine. 2nd Spiderman. Batman. Went hardcore Gambit for a while. But Raphael holds m'heart #AskSNL

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.
