New Comedy Series: Key & Peele

Comedy Central is presenting a new sketch series. Check out the sneak preview this Tuesday January 31 at 10:30 pm.

Samples of the series are available at Comedy Central online:


Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele present “Key & Peele,” an original sketch-comedy show coming to Comedy Central in 2012. In this new series these fresh, relevant comedic actor-writers, used to being on the outside looking in, will examine 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” will showcase 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.

Interview of Key & Peele on National Public Radio:

Obama, Peele goes on to say, was the best thing to happen to black nerds everywhere.
“Up until Obama, it was basically Urkel and the black guy from Revenge of the Nerds — Lamar,” says Peele. “Other than that, we had no role models. So he made us cool.”
