NYT Disrupters of the Year Include Key, Peele and Cyrus

by Daina Amorosano, Viacom


In its end of the year feature “The Disrupters,” the New York Times chronicles the cultural upheaval of 2013, from streaming TV to immersive theater. Making it into the chronicle were Comedy Central’s “sketch kings” — Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele, as well as “pop provocateur” Miley Cyrus, who entered the cultural zeitgeist in an entirely new and newly provocative way at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.

“No one in TV comedy appears to be having more fun than this pair, who have only gotten looser as the show has become more established and successful,” NYT reporter Jon Caramanica writes of “Key & Peele,” now in its third season. Read his take here on why the show is “both modern and necessary.”
