Key and Peele Season 4 Interview: Key, Peele, and Atencio Talk at Comic-Con | Collider
While at a fancy restaurant with his girlfriend, Jeff gets mixed up about when to express each half of his biracial identity. Watch more from Key & Peele. How should you laugh at Key and Peele sketches? Keegan Michael-Key (the tall bald guy) and Jordan Peele (the short guy) sure do talk a lot about it. “But I believe that if you're African American, not mixed, and you. Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele each have a white mother and like a Def Comedy Jam comedian doing an impression of a white guy.
I know we are dorks but how funny that was sort of a picture of htings to come! And yes you and your sister make some pretty cute little kiddos!
April 19, at The first episode was so painfully unfunny that I haven't bothered to watch any other episodes. February 27, at 7: Mine died when I was a child and I don't remember her. I got over it. The first two shows were amazing. Anyway, it is interesting to note that almost every instance of "racism" that is referenced is one in which black folks are engaging in the racist behavior.
These two suffered at the hands of their black peers in real life, one was abandoned by his black father terrifically common situationand only recently felt bold enough to refer to their white background in the presence of black people.
Peele does a pretty good Obama impression. February 27, at 6: Those two are great together. Hope for more of their stuff for years to come. February 27, at 1: February 27, at 9: I don't know if it's because I love them on MadTV, but i'm glad they're doing this sketch. I don't have any critiques; all's I know is that it makes me laugh so i wish them success February 27, at 1: February 26, at It focuses on blacks and everything they go through, never does it focus on their white heritage.
They look black, they act black, they tell black jokes, and they ARE black It can't be racist when its a fact!! February 26, at 1: I mean, seriously, you could really hurt yourself with all that stupidity.
By the way, their comedy appeal to MANY. Not just blacks, you moron. These guys are hilarious! I bet you're angry and jealous because you have nothing to be proud of.
I am afraid you re one of the many that dont have the cerebral folds to really get it. They are actually d mn funny and show is actually brilliantly written. Blacks barely watched them and neither did too many Hispanics. They pretty much alienated them. Yet you don't see the issue with these types of shows being displayed on more mainstream television.
The funny thing is, Key and Peele's show actually has a far more diverse viewership than Friends and Fraiser ever did.
Key & Peele vs. Dating A Bi-Racial Man
August 19, at February 25, at 6: You guys are working on a project with Judd Apatow? So we had to sort of, do that for a second. Do you keep an Archive? Do they go to SNL? We call it Camp Awesome. Sometimes they get pulled up to the big leagues. But we must have written over sketches, easy. But did it go significantly further at some point? Or was it always about the level that we saw on screen? So we would have done it. And also, there was two triggers for it. So why would that happen to this president?
And I think that manifested itself in wish fulfillment and manifested itself in this scene. I was reading that you also do Obama. Have you ever considered dueling Obamas or switching it around? We mostly [came] up through the sketch comedy and improv scene. Sketch and improv is a world that is dominated by white performers, that is true.
But to say that there's not African-American women who are "ready" is just wrong. I'm the kind of guy who, if somebody says, 'There's no way to make this funny,' I want to prove that wrong. I believe that with the right nuance, with the right touch, you can emphasize the funniness in anything.
For Key And Peele, Biracial Roots Bestow Special Comedic 'Power' : NPR
That question might've snuck up on Kenan [Thompson], and I think Kenan does a job on a show that has a very specific skill set. And so I think if that's the answer coming out of his mouth, I can understand that answer. But right now, I can think of three women who would murder on Saturday Night Live, either as writers or performers.
It's also a bit of a special power.
We can do characters that other people would feel uncomfortable doing. We can play black characters and explore the comedy of black characters.
There's a whole world of characters and impressions that black women can do that other people — just on the social level, disregarding the practice and skill that goes into perfecting these things, but just on the social level — people would feel uncomfortable doing.
They should hire some black women. Not a black woman — black women. On the slave auction block sketch Peele: There was nobody else out there that could tackle this and create a sketch about an auction block.
Now, I'm the kind of guy who, if somebody says, "There's no way to make this funny," I want to prove that wrong.
