Key and Peele are both biracial, with white mothers and black fathers. It’s this blend of ethnicities and dual personalities from switching “codes” that gives them perspective from both sides of each ethnicity. But Key & Peele doesn’t just take on race, the show also addresses sexism, relationships, homophobia, nerd culture, gang culture, politics, religion, and the funniest stuff people do. And sometimes Key and Peele just get weird for no reason which is also fantastic… and fantastic television.
This is why Key & Peele pulled down a Peabody Award in 2013 and was nominated for a Writers Guid Award the same year. The NAACP also honored Key & Peele for Outstanding Comedy Series at the NAACP Image Awards. President Obama chuckled. Comedy Central laughed all the way to the bank. We all get quotes for work tomorrow. Everyone wins with Key & Peele.
Do not mess with Mr. Garvey, white kids. He’s been around the block seven times! And he knows how to say your silly ass, white name. He toughed out 20 years in the inner city school system and he knows your name is said Buhlakay, Blake. Don’t make Mr. Garvey break his foot over in your high potenuse and send you to Mr. O’Shaghennessee’s office!
Who is more Southern and blacker in a soul food restaurant? It’s on. Donkey teeth.
