Really, just about every Key & Peele sketch is the best and most of them are spot on. Since they hit the scene on MADtv, Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been putting out some of the most quotable, re-watchable joints since Dave Chappelle. Their Comedy Central series is pushing the limits and making fans laugh like few other sketch shows currently on TV. But which of their many great bits are the best Key & Peele sketches? It's time to vote!
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.
We know it’s almost impossible but with your help (and your votes!) we are going to rank the best Key & Peele sketches. We know! Crazy talk. Let us just get Meegan her jacket first. Any classic Key & Peele bits missing? Have your anger translator let us know in the comments section!

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!
Inner City Wizard School
Vincent Clortho Public Wizard School is trying to get that Hogwart’s money, but they are not attracting the same kind of students. They can’t even afford to turn Jamar back to human and their Quidditch players are using Swiffers.
Al Qaeda Meeting
Who would have thought the TSA is a collective of masterminds. Not Al Qaeda. Their leader is way behind on his information.
