Key & Peele - S2

Days after gracing the cover of TIME Magazine’s “Ideas Issue” with their op-ed on no-boundaries comedy, Comedy Central’s sketch series “Key & Peele” won a prestigious Peabody Award, it was announced this morning. Congrats, Key, Peele and Comedy Central! In announcing the winning programs, the Peabody committee said of the series, “It’s like Abbott and Costello meet Richard Pryor when the duo of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele fearlessly apply their mischievous minds and satirical savvy to racially aware sketches both broad and incisive.” The Peabody Awards recognize the best in TV, radio and web storytelling.

“Key & Peele,” which examines life in a provocative and irreverent way through the lens of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele — and with perspective from their shared biracial backgrounds — returns in fall 2014.
