Comedy Central may never be able to recreate the magic that was the Chapelle’s Show(Chocolate News and to even lesser extent Mind of Mencia), however they may have come very close with Key & Peele. It’s a different show than Chapelle’s, at the same time they remind me of each other. Both shows tackle matters of race and identity doing so in a very humorous, yet very smart way. They also have this ability to go from satirical social commentary, to just silly absurd goofiness. If you know me, then you know the latter is something near and dear to my heart.
Props to Comedy Central for that hot young second season renewal.
Keep it going Key & Peele!!!
Hilariously Absurd and Amazing. My friend made a comment saying it was Stellaesque (Michael Ian Black, David Wain and Michael Showalter’s comedy group that a show on comedy central a while back). I think he nailed it on that observation. It does remind me a lot of that show, but its even different from that. its really unlike anything Ive ever seen. Needless to say, I absolutely loved this. Apparently Comedy Central does too, as they have picked up the project. My only hope is if comedy central makes this happen, the show doesn’t share the same fate as Stella.
A big shout out to my mans and nem Aaron Johnstone for putting me up on this.
