TV SHOW TO WATCH TONIGHT: Key & Peele: Comedy Central Series Premiere!By Delaina Dixon | January 31, 2012 | Entertainment
As a fan of the late, great MADtv, I still remember some of the legendary moments comic actors Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele created during their stints on the Fox sketch comedy show. Now the real life pals are back as a comedy duo their self titled series Key & Peele, premiering tonight on Comedy Central.
The 30 minutes of funny features the two guys, who bond over their a bi-racial backgrounds, doing bits of stand up between live action skits that poke fun at race, relationships, celebrity personas and more. Comedy Central can be a bit male skewed, so I brought in an gender expert — my boyfriend — to also watch. He got on a few chuckles, especially over a three-part Lil Wayne sketch featuring the rapper trying to get his “hardcore” songs on … in prison. I especially liked a piece with Peele acting as President Obama, who hires a translator, Luther, to share what he’s really thinking (my sentiments exactly)! You can follow Luther on Twitter @ObamaTranslated.
Tune in for Key & Peele Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central, and have double the laughs.
