FX's 'Fargo' adaptation of the Oscar-winning Coen brothers film made a healthy splash in the ratings this week, in addition to registering a big hit with critics, but buzz will surely build as we approach the arrival of the snow-fallen drama's most surprising additions to date: comedians Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Watch the stars of Comedy Central's 'Key & Peele' make their 'Fargo' debut in the first footage!
Key & Peele
On a day where near of every Liam Neeson fan has been quoting 'Key & Peele' at their highest volume, the Comedy Central duo will next pop up in the unlikeliest of place; FX's forthcoming 'Fargo' TV series! Yep, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will guest star in the FX limited series adapting the Coen brothers film of the same name, but as whom, you ask?
It's been an otherwise quiet day in the realm of TV news, but Comedy Central certainly seems to have made the most of it. Not only will breakout comedy duo 'Key & Peele' return for a fourth season, but so too will the animated 'Brickleberry' draw itself a third outing and the web series-adapted 'Drunk History' take a second course.
Reception of last night's 'How I Met Your Mother' episode "The Time Travelers" might have been a bit mixed (we might have been the only ones still sour by the end), but that hasn't dampened our anticipation for the upcoming season finale episodes "Something Old" and "Something New" one bit. Whether or not we'll actually meet the mother as planned remains to be seen, but at least we have 'Happy Endings' star Casey Wilson and 'Key & Peele's Keegan-Michael Key to sweeten the deal! Find out all about the 'How I Met Your Mother' finale inside!
Sketch comedy needs a kick in the rear every couple years, and it's been too long since Dave Chappelle flamed out when fame and fortune made 'The Chappelle Show' his cross to bare. And though 'Key & Peele' isn't to those lofty heights, they might get there, and they might get there next year as the show has been renewed for a third season.
Regardless of how you feel about the election, funny is funny, and 'Key & Peele' is one of the funniest sketch shows on television right now. One of their signature sketches is Jordan Peele playing President Obama, with Keegan Michael Key as his anger translator Luther. Tonight they've provided their reaction to the election.
