"To not make fun of something is, we believe, itself a form of bullying. When a humorist makes the conscious decision to exclude a group from derision, isn’t he or she implying that the members of that group are not capable of self-reflection? Or don’t possess the mental faculties to recognize the nuances of satire? A group that’s excluded never gets the opportunity to join in the greater human conversation."
- Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in a new piece for Time magazine, in which they explain their role as comedians at a time when political correctness has become another form of bullying.
Here's the latest episode of Paul F. Tompkins's internet talk show Speakeasy, and his guests this time around are Key & Peele stars/creators Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

Key & Peele stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have signed a deal to write a movie with Judd Apatow, Deadline reports. There aren't too many details yet; Key and Peele will star in and executive produce the film, which will be produced by Apatow Productions. While he wouldn't talk about the movie's plot, Apatow said:
“I love these guys because they are riotously, make you sick because you can’t stop laughing, funny. I think Key and Peele are capable of making the movie that America desperately needs right now.”
It's another piece of good news for Key and Peele, whose sketch show was just renewed for a fourth season.
