Sometimes you just need someone to look you in the eye and, with the knowing tone of a true confidant, tell you: “I said, biiiiiiiitch.” Now you always can: Comedy Central has launched a comprehensive online archive for Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s much-missed sketch series Key & Peele.
While the Denver Broncos had plenty to celebrate about at Suoer Bowl 50, it wasn’t Peyton Manning or MVP Von Miller charged over and over again with excessive celebration. It was Hingle McCringleberry.
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele brought back their “Excessive Celebration“ sketch from Key & Peele for The Late Show’s post-Super Bowl show. McCringleberry’s end-zone antics returned, much to the chagrin of Peele’s referee character.

Keegan-Michael Key doesn’t need an anger translator, but could use a break. The comedian and actor had a banner 2015: He received his first Best Supporting Actor Emmy nomination for Key & Peele, completed the final season of the sketch comedy series with co-creator Jordan Peele, stole viewers’ hearts on Playing House, and guest-starred on half a dozen series, including BoJack Horseman and Parks and Recreation.
Both members of Key & Peele have moved on since the end of their influential sketch comedy show. Jordan Peele is going into horror, and Keegan-Michael Key is chilling at his alma mater, Penn State.
Pull out the hypoallergenic tissues from your satchel and let it all out: Tony Hale is a repeat Emmy winner. The actor grabbed another trophy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in Veep. He previously won in 2013.
“I just had a fear my zipper’s down,” the 44-year-old actor said when accepting his award. “Not only are these people so good at what they do, they are good people. At the end of the day that’s what matters, and I’m so grateful to them.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of America’s preeminent science minds, but is he exempt from even the most menial household chores? Key & Peele say yes.
The end of Key & Peele may be nigh, but you can seek comfort in the knowledge that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are busying themselves with all sorts of comical projects that will join their forces. For example, they’re making a movie about a cat named Keanu.
When OutKast first came up out of the Atlanta hip-hop scene slamming Cadillac doors, the duo of Andre 3000 and Big Boi won over listeners and critics alike with their oil-and-water mix: the former a live wire of funkadelic dandy energy, the latter a down-to-earth Southern gentleman with a spitfire flow.
Sometimes a concept album is really just a concept album — and sometimes it’s a murder confession, as it is in a Key & Peele sketch where Jordan Peele plays a rapper named Gun Rack who’s being accused of killing a man named Darnell Simmons.
Keegan-Michael Key’s character points to one of Gun Rack’s tracks where he word-for-word raps, “I killed Darnell, yeah, I shot him,” as evidence. But Gun Rack doesn’t budge, insisting that it’s a “concept album.”
Key & Peele will end its run on Comedy Central after this current season, EW has confirmed.
“It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart,” series co-creator and star Keegan-Michael Key told TheWrap, which was first to report the news. “I compare it to Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie.”
