Trivia

Director Peter Atencio was planning to quit before the second season was complete because Comedy Central wanted the audience reactions to be part of the sound in the (pre-taped) sketches. Atencio and his team resisted throughout and eventually stayed on after the network changed their minds. The director wrote about his experience on his Tumblr page. See more »

In the pantheon
11 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Key and Peele are the most acerbic, gutsy, and funny duo on American television today. In fact, comedy duos seem to be a lost art form in the United States (gone are the days of Laurel and Hardy, Abbot and Costello, and Martin and Lewis). Perhaps, that's why Key and Peele seems fresh, while at the same time, hearkening back to pre-war era comedy. The writing is heavy on satire, but the performances are rife with pratfalls. In an era of snark and ironic distance, it's invigorating to watch a comedy in love with the execution of a sketch, not just the target of a joke. The cinematography also elevates the show above the usual crop, with its filmic look and splendid editing. Noting about this show is slapdash (Judd Apatow improv, this ain't). The show's writing and performing is deliberate and the dividends are many! Highly recommended.
