Key & Peele is an American sketch comedy television series created by and starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele which examines life in a provocative and irreverent way, through a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments.
Whether it's satirising the President, spoofing Nazis, or ordering up some soul food, 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.
The series features Key and Peele in front of a live studio audience bantering about a subject that is weaved between filmed shorts and sketches.
In the pilot, they discuss the issue of lying which leads into irreverent shorts of Lil' Wayne rapping from jail about how he's the baddest motherf*&ker around, but is constantly getting stabbed by the clearly much tougher inmates; an Obama sketch where Peele impersonates the President and Key plays his "anger translator" to show that Obama does loose his cool at times; and "Gideon's Kitchen" a reality cooking competition where the head chef is impossible to read.
The series is executive produced by Key, Peele, Ian Roberts and Jay Martel.
