Key and Peele brought an energy and originality to the sketch comedy scene that hadn't been seen since the early 2000's. The sketches showed highlighted national racial issues, political satire and even gave us an insight to Peele's future horror ambitions. Here are 15 jokes from some of our favorite sketches.

Substitute Teacher

I Said Biiii*ch

Daryl: “I looked this woman in the eye and I said, *looks over shoulder* biiiiii*ch.”

Auction Block

Slave 1: “Ok, well you have to buy that dude.”

Slave 2: “It’s a no-brainer.”

Slave 1: “I mean that guy's huge.”

Slave 2: “Anybody would buy him.”


Without a doubt the best joke from this sketch is the whisper-screaming fight culminating in what appears to be fellatio miming.

Retired Military Specialist
