Key And Peele Finale: Sketch comedy virtuosos sign off in finale - Watch

The series finale of “Key and Peele” took a trip to the magical land of “Negrotown.”

“Key & Peele” bid farewell on Wednesday night, September 9 after five seasons. The Comedy Central sketch show, which rarely got into politics or touched hot-button issues, took on racism issue in of one the final sketches.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been driving for a long time. At the beginning of season four of their Comedy Central show Key & Peele, the duo switched up the format, adding in segments of the two driving to some unknown location between sketches. Along the way, the two have used Key & Peele to tackle everything from male identity, race, and sexuality to the NFL, Game of Thrones fans, and OutKast. They saved some of their most poignant and hilarious material for their final hour last night and revealed the punchline to a joke years in the making.

Though it’s been online for months, Key & Peele signed off with the biting “Negrotown,” which encapsulates the anger of the Black Lives Matter movement in the form of a Willy Wonka-type musical. You’ve seen it before, and you should see it again. The clip has since gone viral on YouTube—where Key and Peele have successfully reached a wider audience—with more than five million views.
