Key and Peele is fantastic. Both Portlandia and Key and Peele are more consistently funny than SNL is or MadTV was. It may be a “cooks in the kitchen thing,” where you get more quality sketches out of a comedy duo (Fry and Laurie, Armisen and Brownstein, Key and Peele) because of the closer rapport. Idk, just a guess.
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are the stars of “Key & Peele,” an original new sketch-comedy show that examines life in a provocative and irreverent way, through a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments. Whether it’s satirizing the President, spoofing Nazis, or ordering up some soul food, Key & Peele showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.
Anyway, Key and Peele, both former MadTV cast members, are great. You can watch full-length episodes on Hulu Plus, clips on Hulu, and clips on Comedy Central. And of course there’s the Comedy Central channel on youtube.
Here are some of my favorite sketches. IT WAS TOO HARD TO CHOSE SO I JUST KEPT ADDING MORE AND MORE:
The show airs Tuesdays at 10:30/9:30 c on Comedy Central and it has already been renewed for a second season that will air in the fall.
