Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele”: Finally, Some Comedy Worth Watching

Still mourning the loss of “The Chappelle Show”? Comedy Central has a solution to  ease your woes – MadTV’s Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have a great new sketch-com show called “Key & Peele” and it’s already making headlines. Their no-holds-barred approach to shtick comedy is a real delight floating atop the drivel that’s been shoveled down our throats in the past few years.

What makes this show stand apart from the rest is that it’s got a true sense of fearlessness and stark naked humanity. Full of biting satire, bold social commentary, and political critique – no topic is safe from their sharp wit and side-splitting delivery, and what’s best is that they can appeal to most audiences, offering a variety of subjects in their short sketches, stand up, and impressions that never disappoint (a few of which can be viewed already on YouTube). All of this is set in a format similar to “The Chappelle Show”, using a combination of stand up and videos set in front of a live audience, with each segway flowing seamlessly into the next, humor expanding in the process.

It’s rare that I can find a sketch-com show that can actually consistently make me laugh throughout (IFC’s “Portlandia” is also one of those), but Key & Peele have really been able to shake up our perceptions of society and have really done an awesomely adept job with the writing. They’re off to a really great start, and proving themselves as a wonderful breath of fresh air – I’m anticipating more great things from these two in the near future. Finally! A reason to look forward to Tuesdays.

To find out more, check out Key & Peele on The Comedy Network on Tuesdays at 10:30 pm ET or visit Comedy Central’s website in the U.S. or The Comedy Network in Canada.
