Key & Peele
Skirball Center for the Performing Arts (566 LaGuardia Pl., Manhattan)
COMEDY CENTRAL presents Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in their new half-hour sketch comedy show “Key & Peele.” Best known for their impressive ability to do improv and conjuring up original characters and celebrity impressions, Key and Peele have created a show that provides a satirical take on race, pop culture and politics. In this new series, these fresh, relevant comedic actor-writers, used to being on the outside looking in, examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, through a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments. Whether it’s satirizing the President, spoofing Nazis, or ordering up some soul food, “Key & Peele” showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.
