Lois Lowry returns to 'The Giver'

by Hillary Busis | Nov 09, 2012

Long before dystopian young-adult novels began crowding bookshelves, Lois Lowry created a world free of war, uncertainty, and pain — as well as color, joy, and love — in 1993's ''The Giver.''

by Ray Rahman | Oct 26, 2012

The sketch-comedy series Key & Peele is only in its second season, but stars Keegan-Michael Key, 41, and Jordan Peele, 33, go back much further than that — to their days on MADtv in the mid-2000s. Now, on their Comedy Central show (which airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m.), their wily humor has found a fitting home of its own. Even the president agrees. (Earlier this year he called a recurring bit with Peele as Obama and Key as his anger translator ''good stuff.'') We asked the guys to break down their favorite sketches to find out how they make their funnies...when they're not watching The Bachelorette.

''I'm not messing around in here; I'm like the MacGyver of drag.'' Read it
