“Key & Peele” features Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who are best known for their impressive ability for improv, celebrity impressions and conjuring up original characters. The show utilizes a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from two men used to being on the outside looking in. Whether it’s satirizing the President, spoofing musical acts, or taking on religion, “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.
A true multiplatform hit, “Key & Peele” videos, including “East/West College Bowl,” “Pizza Order,” “I Said Bitch,” “Auction Block” and the classic “Obama Loses His S**t,” have generated over 500 million total streams, with nine of the top ten clips on the Comedy Central YouTube channel coming from the series, highlighted by the #1 clip on the channel, “Substitute Teacher,” with over 44 million streams to date.
“Key & Peele” is executive produced by Key, Peele, Jay Martel, Ian Roberts and Joel Zadak. Peter Atencio directs the series.
