Watch Debut Episode Of “Key & Peele” (New Sketch Series On Comedy Central From Former MadTV Cast)

Watch Debut Episode Of "Key & Peele" (New Sketch Series On Comedy Central From Former MadTV Cast)

It made its debut on Tuesday night (January 31) at 10:30pm. Anyone watch? And if so, thoughts?

For those who didn’t catch it, and are curious, Comedy Central has put the entire first episode online, so now you can!

As a recap… former MadTV cast members, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, debuted their very own sketch-comedy series on Comedy Central.

Titled Key & Peele, the original sketch-comedy show features both comedian/actor/writers “used to being on the outside looking in,” as they “examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, through a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments.

I haven’t watched episode 1 yet, so I can’t offer any commentary on what you can expect from this new series. I’ll take a look at it over the weekend when I have more time.

But you can watch it right now if you haven’t already; it’s not embeddable, so you’ll have to go to Comedy Central’s website (HERE) to watch. And if you have feel free to leave your thoughts on it below:

i watched this last night on comedy central.

overall i thought it was good. i could've done without that tired lil' wayne skit and i didn't care for their opening monologue about them being mixed and it somehow influencing their interactions with black people and white people. i don't know very many black people that treat light skinned/mixed black folks differently because of their appearance, to most black people all black people are the same. i think that's some internal bullshit issues that they have but i guess everyone has some kind of issue, anyway….it did remind me of the dave chappelle show but there's nothing wrong with that because the dave chappelle show was a great show and we need something like that, something that makes us laugh and think at the same time instead of just laughing.


Nah, not for me. Maybe I should watch the whole episode, but two skits in, It didn't hook me.


I was pleasantly surprised. The show was pretty funny. I agree with @JHolla about it being intelligent humor. And yes, I also compared it to how the Dave Chappelle show was set it but it's definitely in it's own class. So it was no biggie to me. The content was great. Definitely will be watching again.

i loved it. it was subtle, intelligent black nerd humor. too bad people expect it to be chapelle and won't let this show stand in its own right like black people are supposed to be interchangeable pieces. Jimmy Fallon uses Johnny Carson's old set and no one makes a comparison.


These guys suck. I'd rather watch Dave Chappelle re-runs on YouTube.

So far it's very funny! But they kinda wrong for using the Chappelle's Show set like we wouldn't notice!
