We'll go ahead and say it: Key and Peele changed the comedy game.
Over the past five seasons of their Comedy Central show, Keegan-Michael Key (the tall one) and Jordan Peele (the not-quite-as-tall one) have honed their early style of raucous one-upmanship (see: “Dueling Hats”) into a singular brand of comedy that is socially prescient as it is side-splitting.
Of course, their contemporary Comedy Central superstars—Amy Schumer, Jon Oliver, and Jon Stewart come to mind—have achieved just as much renown for their cutting satire as for the laughs they get. But whereas the rest of the pack typically stays pretty cerebral, Key and Peele aren't afraid to toss some old-fashioned slapstick into their routines as well. Brawn and brains, so to speak. Football, jazzercise, actual slapping—they're the multi-sport athletes of the comedy world.
So as Key & Peele wrap their show for good after the current season, we're celebrating their most sweat-inducing performances from some of their funniest sketches.
