Key and Peele are geniuses. I love them so much because they’re fearless in their humor but still incredibly smart and thoughtful. You gotta see their sketch on the crazy names of football players. They’re truly everything that makes comedy important.
I saw a sketch from them is about a family who is about to experience its first gay wedding. So they wanted to make sure they knew all they could about how those go and they ask a coworker to come school them on the logistics. What ensues is complete utter hilarity, and with some dope actors (like Lance Riddick, Romany Malco, Vernee Watson-Johnson).
I couldn’t stop laughing about one thing before the next line made me cackle like a hyena. The dude with the notepad, though. He was so prepared to learn.
“Cousin Delroy’s getting married. To a man. Which is crazy.” *everybody nods*
“As an active member of the homosexual community…”
“None of us are gay so I would assume we would all sit in the straight section.”
“So when in the ceremony do we sing Over the Rainbow?”
“I’m nervous because I can only do jazz hands for like 3 minutes before my hands start to cramp.”
“Now can we see the pony show from the straight section or are we way in the back somewhere?”
“Where do you get the euros to buy gay gifts?” WHEN I TELL YOU I ALMOST SLID OUT MY CHAIR AT THIS LINE! LMAOOOOOOOO!!!
“Do we have to participate in the anal sex or do we have to watch and cheer in a firemen’s hat?”
“When do we sing YMCA?”
“So there’s no gay hymns in the ceremony?” GAY. HYMNS. I don die!
“Do we throw something other than rice?” “What would you throw?” “I don’t know. Cous cous. Skittles.” Crying.
“Is RuPaul gonna be there?”
Finally, he just had to quit them because he was so unable with their questions. Chile, I HOLLERED. This sketch is gold. Their show is on Comedy Central, and it comes on Wednesday nights.
P.S. My homies over at Very Smart Brothas actually met Key and Peele and sat down with them for the “Blackness Challenge.” Hilarity ensued and it’s great because VSB is basically a mirror of K&P, blog-version.
