Subsequently, Breuer rose to fame as a cast member of Saturday Night Live from 1995 to 1998. OnSNL, Breuer's characters included "Goat Boy" (who hosted the fictional MTV program "Hey, Remember the 80s?") and Glen Henderson, the elder brother to Chris Kattan's Todd Henderson/Azrael Abyss character in the "Goth Talk" skits.
