From Second City to MadTV to Key and Peele, Keegan-Michael Key knows a thing or two about the format of sketch comedy. And so, naturally, this also makes him the perfect candidate to explores its long and rich history.
Keegan-Michael Key is hosting a new Audible series titled The History of Sketch Comedy. In it, Key will take you on the ins and outs of all this sketch over the course of ten half hour episodes. In this exclusive clip, he talks about returning to Detroit after college to perform in The Complete Wrks of Wllm Shakespeare. (And yes, he details why it is spelled that way). He also recites a sketch he performed called So That’s The Way You Like It, as originated by Beyond The Fringe.
The History of Sketch Comedy premieres tomorrow, January 28th. Episodes can be found here.
