*Well blacks folks haven’t seen comedy like this on TV since the Wayans Brothers were on the air.
I’m talking about the brazen comedic style of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele – better known as “Key & Peele.”
The duo heads into season 5 of a show where they have been pushing the proverbial comedy envelope since they came on the Comedy Central scene with their show, “Key & Peele” in 2012.

Where there ain’t no pain and no sorrow
