Key & Peele Town Hall Meeting Sketch


Screen Shot 2015-07-03 at 10.51.29 AM

 

This was one of the most fun sketches I had a chance to write for K&P and what I am most proud of with this one is how we can get so many laughs in the silences.

By the way, this really happened I was watching a C-SPAN type event and a politician was doing this, talking about different groups and the camera kept going to the groups and I was like “how do they KNOW, that’s a farmer?” I mean the guy could just like flannel. Some heightening and we have a piece. Kudos to our director and production team who made this look so right and of course to the genius of K&P.

NEW EPS start JULY 8th!

ONE WORD POEMS – SELECTED WORKS: 1999-2007

As everyone knows, poetry has always been a passion of mine. It’s all about reducing to the essence; like a sculptor who insists he is freeing his work from the stone– poetry is about peeling away the layers until only the truth remains. Here now are some of my most beloved poems.

THE ONE-HOUR “KEY & PEELE SUPER BOWL SPECIAL” STARRING KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY AND JORDAN PEELE PREMIERES FRIDAY, JANUARY 30 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT ON COMEDY CENTRAL

  • The “Key & Peele Super Bowl Special” Will Be Available in the Comedy Central App and On Demand from February 2 – February 8

NEW YORK, January 9, 2014 – Comedy Central announced today that it has teamed with the NFL to televise the first-ever official Super Bowl comedy special, making this year’s pre-Super Bowl festivities even bigger, better and more hilarious than ever before. Starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele of Comedy Central’s hit sketch-comedy series “Key & Peele,” the “Key & Peele Super Bowl Special” (#KeyAndPeele Super Bowl Special) is a one-hour sketch-comedy show set to air Super Bowl Weekend on Friday, January 30th, at 10 p.m. ET/PT—and encoring the night before Super Bowl XLIX, on Saturday January 31st, at 11 p.m. ET/PT—on Comedy Central.

The special will feature Key and Peele anchoring the ultimate Super Bowl comedy event, using the ubiquitous sports news-desk format to celebrate professional football, its most beloved personalities and the grandest day on its calendar: Super Bowl Sunday. Channeling all of the energy and excitement on the ground at Super Bowl XLIX in Arizona, the special will include sketch-comedy vignettes featuring to-be-announced NFL players and a possible Super Bowl edition of the popular “East-West Bowl” sketch from “Key & Peele.” In the weeks leading up to the special, Key and Peele will also post their playoff predictions in a series of social-media videos.

The “Key & Peele Super Bowl Special” will be available February 2 – February 8 in the Comedy Central App with no authentication necessary and on demand through cable providers.
