Key & Peele: Preview—Power Falcons (by comedycentral)

This sketch that Rob’s in airs on Wednesday night’s episode, which also guest stars Rob Delany and Lindsey Ames. 10:30pm! Comedy Central! POWER FALCONS!

I know this video was probably supposed to be funny since its from the Key & Peele show, but I found it very eye-opening instead. Not that it was offensive or anything, just actually addressed real life issues.

It makes me very happy that this little sketch, Honest Bully, which was on the network’s chopping block for quite some time, has really connected with people and is provoking some discussion about bullying. We didn’t put it online on the Comedy Central account, but I hope the network lets this stay up, since it’s getting out there all on its own.

Key & Peele: Dubstep

Oh man, making this one was FUN. The dubstep in the sketch was composed by Josh Funk, who does all of our original music.

Shooting this sketch was a ton of fun. Our art department put together a fully furnished period-accurate late ’70s / early ’80s dorm room, and we had a bunch of great background actors in period clothing who all had a backstory that we’d made up for them. We had some scripted lines we wanted to hit, but I also spent a lot of time letting Jordan just play and improv lines in the scene, and to make it feel as authentic as possible I walked around shooting everything on an early ’80s Magnavox Newvicon camcorder that our DP had rigged to record to a hard drive. There’s a bunch of extra footage that I really love, but we didn’t use it because we were tight on time and didn’t want the sketch to drag, so at some point I’ll definitely put out a longer director’s cut of this one. A small piece of trivia: because of the drug / sex references in the sketch, Occidental College wouldn’t let us use their name, so the sweatshirts in the piece are from “Accidental College.”

If there were a late-night comedy show completely run by comedy writers, without any interference from a host, producer, or network, that show would probably be called The Darkest and Most Impossibly Horrible Things You Can Imagine, Presented as Comedy. Every sketch would end with a gunshot or an infant’s stroller engulfed in flames, and the show would be canceled halfway through its opening titles. That’s because most comedy writers are so inured by humor that only the most shockingly toxic ideas can achieve the proper velocity to penetrate their indifference.

Actually, there is such a show. It’s called The Midnight Show, and most of the sketches do end in horrible tragedy.

How important is it that you watch this Midnight Show PSA? Let me put it this way: millions of lives depend on it.
