Kyle Mooney and Dave McCary’s New Non-Existent Podcast Is the Best New Comedy Podcast
In the downtime between SNL seasons, Kyle Mooney has launched an Instagram account for his brand new podcast with reluctant co-host Dave McCary (SNL, Good Neighbor). The D and K Podcast may have zero episodes so far, but that’s not stopping them from pulling out all the stops engagement-wise and updating their fans. You name it, they’re documenting it: chilling on the patio, chilling on the couch, going to Guitar Center.
The account does a great job of mimicking that signature 70% enthusiasm, 30% white-comedy-guys-who-have-no-idea-what-they’re-doing nascent podcast voice. And for fans of Mooney and Good Neighbor’s pre-SNL YouTube videos, there’s a lot of that same attention to mortifying detail. Little touches like the photo effects on their single-tweet-hosting Twitter account’s avatar and header photo, and the Ideal BF/GF traits list they posted for #WisdomWednesdays do a lot of the work in making it such a solid parody.
The account just launched in June, so catching up on the whole saga isn’t too too tough, but here’s a quick plot summary of what’s happened over at the D and K Podcast so far:
Kyle’s first post:
They generate some sick memes:

They launch a freestyle rap contest with a relatable CTA:

They’ve yet to announce when their first episode will record, or if there will be any guests, but it’s safe to say it’s going to be tight.
