Trivia

The opening theme became different than the original at the beginning of the fourth season. While the original words remain the same, the music and introduction has been changed. Also, the format was changed in between sketches as Key and Peele no longer address a studio audience. They instead ride around in a car through the desert while talking about random topics with each other. The different music and format are a reference to the series True Detective. See more »

The GOAT Comedy sketch show
3 June 2020 | by george-clementsSee all my reviews

Excellent sketches from all series that will make you cringe and laugh hysterically at the same time. The writing is top notch but even better is the chemistry both Jordan and Keegan have. The references will stick to your mind for years after watching! A must watch for anyone who enjoys sketch shows or just general comedy.
