It’s time for another Funny Human of the Week! We’re less than two weeks away from the first ever Comedy Exposition of 2014 here in Chicago, so forgive me for continuing to write exclusively about comedians appearing on the festival! This week’s human is stand up comic and SNL cast member Brooks Wheelan, who’s doing a couple of very exciting shows as a part of our festival.

Here’s a short clip of Brooks taking a look back at a few of his favorite moments from his first season as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. Two moments, specifically!

I forgot about that possum sketch until just now, that thing was super dumb and good.

So in addition to his work on SNL, he’s also a working standup comic, doing festivals all around the US. Here’s Brooks’ appearance on the Moontower Comedy Festival’s Inside Joke webseries. He talks about his life as a lazy outdoorsman and potential future nature TV host, and is all-around a pretty charming dude.

Brooks is on Twitter, and does some primo goofs and spoofs for all to enjoy! I’ve collected some favorites here:

 

 

 

 

 

To play us out, here’s a short clip of Brooks talking about his creepy but seemingly happy meth-addicted neighbors, the sort of people who have a nice time hanging out listening to Trent Reznor complaining over drum machines all day. See you next week!
