2.1 milion viewers tuned in for the season one premiere, which made Key & Peele, one) Comedy Central’s biggest launch since 2009, and two) a no-brainer for renewal. Season one will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on September 25th.
Key & Peele features Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who are best known for their impressive ability for improv, celebrity impressions and conjuring up original characters. The show utilizes a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from two men used to being on the outside looking in. Whether it’s satirizing the President, spoofing musical acts, or introducing Mary Magdalene’s pimp, Key & Peele showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.
