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.


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


Rafi: “Guys, who f*cking cares how much I slap-ass? So what, I slap-ass? Big deal man I’m a f*cking baseball player. That's what we do. We f*cking hit home runs and slap-ass.”

Retired Military Specialist

Decker: “I made a vow never to kill another human being. Sorry General, you’re going to have to find someone else.”

General: “Oh. We weren’t thinking you’d do it. We were hoping you could recommend someone for the job.”

Decker: “Alright, I’ll do it.”
