Keegan-Michael Key To Appear as a Guest
NEW YORK, January 5, 2017 - As the President's term comes to an end, "Key & Peele's" famously popular characters Obama and his anger translator Luther are set to make a final appearance. The brand new original sketch featuring Keegan-Michael Key who plays "Luther, the anger translator" to Jordan Peele's calm and mild-mannered Obama, will premiere tonight with Key as the guest on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.
Comedy Central's Peabody(R) Award and Emmy(R) Award-winning series "Key & Peele" featured Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele who are best known for their impressive ability for improv, celebrity impressions and conjuring up original characters. The show utilized filmed sketches to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from two men used to being on the outside looking in. Whether it's satirizing the President, black Republicans, or taking on religion, "Key & Peele" showcased their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.
