Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele do whatever they want and it's always funny. That's a rule you should know.

Watch Key and Peele Put Their Friendship To the Test

20 November 2014 10:15 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been being funny together for over 10 years. As stars of the Comedy Central sketch series Key & Peele (now in its fourth season) one would think all the long hours on set would help them learn the ins and outs of each other’s personality— including any preferences when it comes to caffeine intake.

Turns out a person’s coffee order can take even his best friend by surprise. Find out how well Key & Peele actually know each other in the video above.

Watch VH1′s own Ellie Lee hang out with the guys in the latest episode of Backstage Bff.

Saturday Night Live, Ep. 40.06, “Woody Harrelson/Kendrick Lamar”: Harrelson calm center of episode

Saturday Night Live, Season 40, Episode 6, “Woody Harrelson/Kendrick Lamar

Aired November 15, 2014 at 11:30 pm Et on NBC (East coast version watched for review)

The nature of sketch comedy means that anything can happen. It’s an inherent feature of the form, one that can lead to some truly transcendent weirdness and some pretty bland filler. Take Key & Peele, for example: By being a sketch show, they are able to do things like have a silent short commenting on the Trayvon Martin case and racial profiling, and have goofy things like the East/West Bowl sketches (“Everybody’s talking about Fudge”). But because anything can happen, this invites unevenness into a sketch show more easily than in other programs. The main goal of any good sketch show, other than being funny, should be consistency. With SNL, that consistency can come from a variety of places, but it’s always a little refreshing when it comes from… »

Watch: 'Key & Peele' Skewer the '80s in This Hilarious Action-Film Parody

6 November 2014 8:15 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The ‘80s were a great time for action movies – a time when men like Stallone, Schwarzenegger,and Mel Gibson kicked ass while sporting hilarious mullets, lots of denim, and copious catchphrases. Comedy Central’s Key & Peele take us back to this magical era in this hysterical new trailer for Strike Force Eagle 3: The Reckoning. To paraphrase the Wu-Tang Clan, you best protect your neck while watching this one. Keegan Michael Key stars as Cal Flavell, the actor headlining this clip that looks like it could have come straight out of Cannon Films in 1986. Flavell has to infiltrate the home of a Colombian drug lord (Jordan Peele) to save the damsel in distress. He has a gift for dispatching bad guys in a unique way. The clip really nails all the things that made...

Jordan Peele Plans To Make Horror Movie Get Out

29 October 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jordan Peele has made his name in comedy, but a closely-allied genre is beginning to attract his attention. In addition to being part of Key & Peele, the actor intends to strike out on his own to work on the horror film Get Out, which he will write and direct.

In speaking with Playboy (via Collider), Peele talked a bit more about his foray into the horror genre, and the reasons behind it. Here’s what he said:

I’ve been spending the first half of my career focusing on comedy but my goal, in all honesty, is to write and direct horror movies. I have one that I’m working on with Darko Entertainment called Get Out – I don’t want to say too much about it, but it is one of the very, very few horror movies that does jump off of racial fears.

Jordan Peele to Write and Direct Horror Film Get Out

29 October 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

You’re probably familiar with Jordan Peele as one half of the very funny comedic duo of Key & Peele, but in addition to comedy, it appears that Peele has aspirations in the horror genre as well.  We’ve known for a little while that Peele has been developing a horror film of his own, but in a recent interview with Playboy, Peele revealed a bit more about the proposed feature, titled Get Out.  Peele intends to write and direct the film, and he has a really fascinating angle for the story: racial fears.  More after the jump. Speaking with Playboy (via Badass Digest), Peele revealed a little bit about his plans for Get Out: "I’ve been spending the first half of my career focusing on comedy but my goal, in all honesty, is to write and direct horror movies.

Conan & Max Weinberg reunite after nearly 5 years Weinberg, who was Conan O'Brien's bandleader from 1993 until Conan's "Tonight Show" ended in January 2010, made his first appearance on the "Conan" TBS show, helping fill in on drums. Neil Patrick Harris: “In a perfect world, in five years I’m Ed Sullivan” Harris talked about his variety show dreams with Charlie Rose: "Once a week I’d get to, like, show everyone amazing performances on Broadway, amazing magicians, this great restaurant that we went to — to  be a bit of a tastemaker. I’d get to be P.T. Barnum.” Plus: Will Harris save variety — or bury it? This is how the “Game of Thrones” Iron Throne is supposed to look Martin has said the show got the Iron Throne wrong: "I said repeatedly the Iron Throne is huge. It towers over the room like a great beast. And it's ugly. »

Comedian Jordan Peele is set to write and direct the horror film "Get Out". Despite his funny man background though on the series "Key and Peele," this will be a straight up horror film.

Talking about the project with Playboy, Peele says:
