World-class comedians and America’s favourite duo, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele co-star in Key & Peele; a sketch show that promises unexplained fits of laughter and bizarre one-liners that’ll keep you entertained for hours. Next month, the hit TV show will make its way to Comedy Central (DStv Channel 122) as Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa) continues their streak of serving up all the laughs.
Set to hit screens on Monday, 2 December at 21:30 CAT, Key & Peele use sketches and live segments to perform jokes, fabricate strange but weirdly relatable scenarios, and generate trademark sayings you’re guaranteed to start using in every-day conversations.
Over the course of five seasons, the sketched racked up more than a billion views on YouTube. Now, thanks to Comedy Central, it’s time for local viewers to get their fix and experience first-hand what gives this show a unique edge.
Imagine a dance-off where the only dialogue used is ‘NOICE!’. Friends swapping exaggerated tales about their wives. Barack Obama impersonations. ‘There’s something on your shirt’ pranks, inner-city substitute teacher, Mr. Garvey, faced with a classroom full of middle-class white students, and more.
Dillon Khan, Vice President of Comedy Central & Creative Services at Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN Africa) said, “In a continued effort to bring local audiences shows that will resonate with them and keep them laughing, Key & Peele is one we’re confident will not disappoint. The level of attention that goes into creating these sketches, not to mention the star-studded cast, is sentiment to what we stand for as a brand and we look forward to ending the year off right with this crazy new addition.”
