Great news for fans of great comedy today as Comedy Central just announced it's renewed the critically-acclaimed sketch show Key & Peele for a third season consisting of 13 episodes. The first two seasons of Key & Peele only ran 8 and 10 episodes respectively, so the third season is getting a larger order than usual. The sketch show's second season concludes tomorrow night, which will be the last new episode before season three premieres in the fall of 2013. Somebody start a petition to get Liam Neesons to guest star on the new season right away.
"We love Mitchell and Webb and I love Fry and Laurie. We thought it’d be cool if it was called our last names, like a comedy team, and we had bounced around Keegan and Jordan, and Jordan and Keegan. It felt like Keenan and Kel, or felt like Malcolm and Eddie… It felt like, 'Oh, these two guys are going to be oddballs, and one’s probably really fastidious, and the other one’s probably a slacker.' It felt like that instead of a sketch show."

This clip from Comedy Central's new sketch show Key & Peele, starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, is phonetastic (sorry). Who among us doesn't change our telephonic intonation depending on whether we're standing next to friends, strangers, or moms? Not a one of us is immune from this symptom of modern life, which binds us and unites us under the glory of God….And that's how I'd talk on the phone if I were standing next to a rabbi. The show premieres in January.
