Key and Peele's ultimate comedy curriculum, from 'Who's on First?' to 'Veep'

25 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

What are the essential sketches, performers, and shows every comedy nerd should know? EW’s guest editors Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele offer a master class. Warning: Some of the clips ahead contain strong language.

1. Eddie Murphy

As Key says, “I don’t know if there’s ever been anybody in history working at a level like he was working at. To have that much talent, that much charm, that much discipline, all of that wrapped up into one. To think about 48 Hrs., Trading Places. Aw, man!” Adds Peele: “If I had a kid and I wanted to form »

Video of the Day: Key & Peele Season Four Promo Is Awesome

11 September 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In January of 2012, Comedy Central aired the first episode of a new sketch show starring MADtv alumni Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. After three seasons, the show has become one of my favourite comedies, and I’m stoked for season four, which premieres September 24. A new promo has been released, and it features a rap from the pair in character as President Obama and his trusty anger translator Luther – along with some of their more famous characters making appearances throughout. Watch the video below. Enjoy!

Is It Better to Take a Serious or Comedic Approach to Movies Based on Cop Shows?

3 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

For someone who grew up with a painting of CHiPs hanging in the entryway of his house (my step-dad did it for a “TV Guide” ad or something), I don’t remember much about the actual TV series. It had a pair of cops on motorcycles, made a star out of Erik Estrada and for a brief moment near the end of its six seasons featured former Olympian and future Kardashian father figure Bruce Jenner. I honestly have no memory of the tone of the show when it was on, but it does seem to have become more comical in retrospect (is it the tight pants?). Enough to be perfect fodder for one of those movies based on a TV show that’s closer to parody than faithful adaptation. When Wilmer Valderrama was reportedly in the running to play Ponch (the Estrada role), in a big-screen version, that made total sense. Especially »

Let's Be Cops brings the noise in new clips

13 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. – both of “New Girl” fame – fake their way onto the police force to get the girl (“The Vampire Diaries”’ Nina Dobrev) and the bad guys in this weekend’s Let’s Be Cops. Dressing up as officers of the law for a costume party has some pretty unexpected consequences for Ryan (Johnson) and Justin (Wayans), but we’ve got a special glimpse into what’s in store for the duo!

Check out the below clips from the buddy cop comedy below, and don’t forget: This is all kinds of illegal.

Let’s Be Cops also stars Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street), James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas), “MADtv”’s Keegan-Michael Key, and Andy Garcia (Ocean’s 11, The Godfather: Part III). It hits theatres this Friday, August 15. »

Comic-Con: Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele and Director/Producer Peter Atencio Talk Key And Peele Season 4, Animated Spinoffs, Fargo, and More

26 July 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele may well be the best damn comedy team working today.  After honing their skills on MadTV for five seasons, the duo struck out on their own to create Key and Peele.  Within months of premiering, the series produced a viral hit so popular that President Barrack Obama felt the need to comment on it publicly. Three seasons, (with Key and Peele Season 4 coming this fall), two Emmy nominations, and one Peabody Award later, these funnymen are just getting started. Now they’re branching out into dramedy with turns on Fargo, features with Judd Apatow and even animated spin-offs of their meta-textual YouTube characters Vandaveon and Mike.  Yesterday afternoon, Collider sat down with the comedians and their Director/Producer Peter Atencio at Comic-Con to discuss all of the above.  And Cyrano de Bergerac by way of Cholo culture.  Read on for the full interview and some video snippets. »

15 Years Later: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Drop Dead Gorgeous

23 July 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

The year was 1999 and by the summer, teen films were all the rage. The year kicked off with two unexpected box office successes, Varsity Blues and She’s All That, before studios started pumping out hit after hit. In the same year, Drop Dead Gorgeous, a dark comedy about teenage girls competing in a local Minnesota beauty pageant, bombed at the box office. Unable to capture the same excitement as American Pie or 10 Things I Hate About You, the film quickly disappeared from theaters after earning a dismal $10.5 million at the box office.

It was only later, when released on DVD and VHS, did the movie become a cult classic. Similarly to Jawbreaker, which also came out in 1999, Drop Dead Gorgeous proved to be a pivotal film — introducing audiences to Amy Adams, making use of the mockumentary style — even if it was overlooked at the time.

On the 15th anniversary of the theatrical release, »

With Obama Sketches and 'Les Miserables' Parodies, Key and Peele Do Comedy Like No One Else

13 June 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Comedian Patton Oswalt, during a recent Paley Center for Media conversation with Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele, was less moderator and more unabashed fanboy for their Comedy Central series, which will return for its fourth season this fall. But Oswalt's approach highlighted one of the factors that makes the Comedy Central sketch series "Key and Peele" -- and Key and Peele themselves -- such a fresh voice in the comedy atmosphere: The fact that no one is doing comedy like them.  While the duo's background includes stints on "Mad TV," Key and Peele said that they work hard to draw on their unique experiences for the show. "The way we look at creating a 'Key and Peele' sketch is, what is something that only Keegan and I could do -- or that only Keegan and I would do?"

'Riot': Steve Carell and cast on the new improv game show that's taking comedy to the extreme

13 May 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

I think it’s safe to say that Steve Carell is a master of physical comedy. This is the man who famously once waxed his chest hair on the big screen. So it makes sense that The Office star is an executive producer and one of the first celebrity guests on Riot, a new extreme game show premiering tonight on Fox.

“I have no idea what I’m getting myself into,” Carell jokingly told EW before filming alongside his Office co-star Andy Buckley. The show is based on the international hit franchise Slide Show and puts two teams of celebrities »
