Key & Peele will go down in history as one of the greatest sketch shows of all time, one that redefined the “filmic” sketch and established such a strong viral presence that many people didn’t even know it was a show that aired on actual television. Truly an internet juggernaut, K&P sketches racked up more than a billion views on YouTube over the course of five seasons, which culminated last week with a two-episode series finale. A billion views. Insane, right?
But also not that surprising, considering the level of care and attention that seemed to go into every sketch from the top down — from the subversive, racially aware sketches that gave the show its edge, to the many others about farts. What Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key accomplished as comedic performers will be recognized for years to come, as will the directing talents of Peter Atencio, who turned even the silliest ideas into memorable short films; and the writers, who picked through both the absurd and the topical (oftentimes simultaneously) with a fine-tooth comb. (And speaking of combs, we can’t forget hair and makeup; with K&P ending, The Americans and Drag Race are left to hold down TV’s wig game. Also, while we’re here: The props and production design and costumes were consistently at the toppest notch, too.)
Before our rankings begin, let’s get this out of the way: Ranking every Key & Peele sketch is a ridiculous, near-futile endeavor. Not only because so many K&P bits were stunningly shot, hilariously funny, utterly prescient, or all of the above (even the least-successful sketches still hold up better than most on other shows), but also because comedy is completely subjective in every way, and what I, a single person in this crazy world, find funny is bound to differ from what you, a different person, find funny. But, hey, this is the internet: a sea of lists and rankings that pepper our lives with opinions we didn’t even know we wanted! To settle on a ranking, I tried to combine multiple factors — subversive qualities, good, old-fashioned LOLs, and viral success — into each decision. I probably failed, in some capacity.
So, with that: Let’s set off on a journey that spanned well over 10,000 words!
298. “Karim and Jahar at the Gym” (Season 3, Episode 11)Unfortunately, K&P’s Middle Eastern catcalling guys always rubbed me the wrong way. Here they try their hand at picking up ladies at the gym.
297. “Paint Titties” (Season 3, Episode 12)Paint splotches can also look like titties.
296. “Biological Dad” (Season 2, Episode 10)Peele meets his real father (Key), who at first is dismissive, but when Peele says he “has his own show,” this gets Dad more interested. Ends with a Comedy Central zinger.
295. “Murder Laughs” (Season 1, Episode 8)A profoundly dark sketch that asks the question: What’s funny about shooting someone?
294. “Army Recruiters” (Season 1, Episode 7) They’re army recruiters — at a gay bar! An early dip into gay jokes that don’t quite work. K&P would stumble into a few of these over the run of the show.
293. “Mary Magdalene’s Pimp” (Season 2, Episode 1)Jesus is not a pimp. He’s a carpenter.
292. “Pawn Shop” (Season 3, Episode 11)Here, Key plays a crazy bearded man who wants to buy weird shit at a pawnshop. He’s definitely not going to murder anyone.
291. “Crosswalk Button” (Season 3, Episode 9)I never really liked the sketches that played out as long arguments, but this is certainly something we’ve all faced. “Did you press the button?”
290. “Macedonian Cafe” (Season 4, Episode 5) A good chance to focus on an oft-unseen group of American immigrant — the Macedonian — ends up being just okay.
289. “Lion King Flirting” (Season 5, Episode 8)Tatiana Ali makes a cameo in this confusing bit about a guy trying to one-up his friend by discussing The Lion King.
288. “Bank Robbers Can’t Open a Car Door” (Season 4, Episode 1) It’s harder than it looks.
287. “Baby Prudence” (Season 1, Episode 5) A short and sweet look at a lost baby named Pru.
286. “Biracial Engagement” (Season 5, Episode 4)Key is engaged to Melanie Lynskey, but her parents just don’t approve. But also, the parents are aliens? Weird twist.
285. “Dental Insurance” (Season 3, Episode 10) No real jokes here, aside from a lot of yelling from Peele’s LaShawn character about various things. This is the low point of LaShawn’s otherwise memorable and enjoyable journey on K&P.
284. “Cult Guys” (Season 3, Episode 12) A funny setup, but the ultimate premise of this sketch eluded me. They’re two guys who just really don’t want people to know they were in a cult?
283. “Makin’ It Rain” (Season 3, Episode 9) You can’t fling coins at a strip club. You just can’t.
282. “Laughing at the Wrong Time” (Season 4, Episode 3)Peele’s character reveals his “famous joke” to his co-worker in the office break room, but he laughs at all the wrong things.
281. “Guy in Horrible Pain” (Season 4, Episode 2) Key plays a guy in — you guessed it — horrible pain, who can barely move and often screams out. Some delicious Key physical bits, as per usual, but the sketch drags on a bit too long.
280. “Phone Call” (Season 1, Episode 1)In the opening sketch of the very first episode (with laugh track!), K&P turn up their “black voices” on their respective phone calls, each fearing the other one will mug him.
279. “Brothers” (Season 3, Episode 13) We gonna be brothers now.
278. “Obama’s Anger Translator: Victory” (Season 2, Episode 7) The Anger Translator sketches came to define K&P, though it’s safe to say nothing was ever as strong as the first Luther meeting. This is the point where they started getting more yell-y and less jokey, though the concept remained strong.
277. “Nerd in Jail” (Season 2, Episode 8)I wasn’t sure what to call this one. Peele’s a nerd, stuck in jail! Bite his dick off?
276. “Obama Raps” (Season 1, Episode 2) Obama drops the mic in a street rap simply by being the president.
275. “1990s MTV Show” (Season 4, Episode 1)Key plays a lady singer named Majesty who’s all about girl power, and Peele is interviewing her for an MTV-style ’90s video show. Majesty tells Peele about the “herpes in her butt.” The button reveal — Majesty removing her wig and facing her/himself in the mirror — was a fun surprise, and something K&P generally excel at.
274. “Racist Dog” (Season 2, Episode 2) Let this be a lesson: Do not adopt racist dogs.
273. “Two British Explorers” (Season 5, Episode 2) K&P play two old explorer-men with taxidermied animals on their walls. This was just pure madness, and honestly, I couldn’t tell you what this sketch was, but you’ve gotta appreciate that low-angle shot.
272. “Massage” (Season 4, Episode 4) Erections are normal during a massage. Even from the masseuse.
271. “Rap Back and Forth” (Season 2, Episode 4) Unoffensive. Short. I have nothing to say about this!
270. “Baby Forest” (Season 1, Episode 8) I imagine the writer’s room pitch for this was: “How ’bout we do something where Peele plays a three-foot-tall Forest Whitaker?” Well, my friends, that’s exactly what this provides.
269. “Old-Timers Talk Drake” (Season 5, Episode 2)Two old guys at the bar rhyming lots of things with “Drake.” A lot of words rhyme with Drake, as it turns out.
268. “Human Centipede Reunion” (Season 2, Episode 6)Wayne Brady shit in Peele’s mouth, Peele shit in Key’s mouth, and Key… well, he’s still bitter about being on the wrong end of a human-centipede torture experiment. The visualizations are a little much.
267. “Obama’s Anger Translator: Campaign Trail” (Season 2, Episode 6) “I ain’t trying to kiss no poop” is a line from this sketch. That’s all you need to know.
266. “Cheating Wife (With a Twist)” (Season 4, Episode 5)We can see the truth from a mile away, but Key’s outrage at his wife cheating on him with a dog still draws a few choice laughs.
265. “ESPN Classic” (Season 3, Episode 4)“Deal with me, dawg.”
264. “Creepy Movie Musical” (Season 2, Episode 9) Well-shot parody of a classic movie-musical, with Peele as an uncomfortably domineering leading man.
263. “Orgy Jacket Guy” (Season 3, Episode 5)He’s just an ordinary man looking for a jacket in the middle of an orgy. One note: Peele’s voice in this weirdly mirrors Eddie Murphy’s in Dr. Doolittle almost exactly.
262. “Overly Offended Co-workers” (Season 3, Episode 9) A black man, a woman, and a gay man are offended by everything at work.
261. “Karim and Jahar” (Season 2, Episode 9)As mentioned earlier, a lot of people loved this sketch, but I guess I never quite got in line with these guys. They’re Middle Eastern catcallers — an act they take to quite subversive heights in this sketch while salivating over women wearing burkas. I do, however, enjoy their fun grindy dance.
260. “Fro-Yo Brain Freeze” (Season 4, Episode 9) Key and Peele are eating frozen yogurt when Peele gets terrible brain-freeze and starts acting crazy.
259. “Fighting Meegan’s Battles” (Season 3, Episode 9) A sketch that proves, yet again, that Meegan is basically a demon spawn, though her insults to a typical club bouncer are creative enough to warrant laughs. Also, we learn here that her favorite film is The Green Mile.
258. “Tackle & Grapple” (Season 3, Episode 9) A good, old-school kung-fu video about the essential difference between tackle and grapple. Sensei Doug Duggart is mostly a pervert.
257. “Jimenez” (Season 3, Episode 10) Jimenez was a great cop. It’s a shame he’s gone.
256. “Gangster Actors” (Season 3, Episode 11) Colin Hanks can’t buy Peele as a “real” gang member, but he loves Key’s British actor. The joke stays the same throughout the sketch, though Hanks and Key’s rapport is enjoyable.
255. “Key Takes an Emotional Pee” (Season 4, Episode 8) K&P are next to each other at a public urinal. Key laughs, then sobs, then screams, all before taking the fastest pee ever and leaving.
254. “Diametrically Opposed” (Season 4, Episode 11) A Crossfire-type show accidentally books two Republicans. Oops! It’s funny because you can see it actually happening.
253. “Lil Wayne” (Season 1, Episode 1) Lil Wayne coming to you straight from Rikers! A good runner for the first show, this played out over multiple sketches and finished with an unfortunate “gay scare” bit at the end.
252. “Trigger-Happy Cop” (Season 3, Episode 13) Obviously hugely topical, this sketch follows Key’s white cop who just can’t stop shooting black people. Designed to be shared on sites like Salon and Slate, this sketch was more “mmhmm” than funny, but it still has a clear effect.
251. “Little Homie” (Season 4, Episode 1)A lawyer’s puppet friend, named Little Homie, helps him relate to people of the streets. Homie doesn’t always have the best advice, though. Have to admire K&P’s determination here, all the way up to the final twist.
250. “Bad Prison Guard” (Season 5, Episode 4)Key is a dumb — very, very dumb — prison guard. He’s dumb!
249. “Fro-Yo Samples” (Season 4, Episode 7) Key is an employee of a fro-yo shop whose indulgence of “free samples” proves her downfall.
248. “Terrible Henchman” (Season 4, Episode 8) Peele plays the world’s worst henchman to Key’s evil mastermind. He opens crinkly candy and takes all suggestions literally. This is mostly a classic straight-man/crazy-man bit, but Peele standing “like a statue” will make anyone laugh.
247. “A Grown-Ass Man” (Season 4, Episode 8) Don’t let his size and voice confuse you: Peele has Benjamin Button’s disease.
246. “Oil Is the Key to Democracy” (Season 4, Episode 10)Key and Peele are African leaders seeking help, but there are strings attached. Richard Schiff guest-stars as a U.S. government official who is unable to help until they mention having oil. Suddenly, he pulls out a satellite phone, loads of planes appear in the sky, and he welcomes them to democracy. Too real.
245. “Country Music” (Season 2, Episode 3) A black guy who loves country music? Madness. This is an example of a game that the audience gets too early, which doesn’t really go anywhere you don’t predict from the outset.
244. “FaceTime” (Season 3, Episode 3) FaceTime can be annoying! (And in turn, so can this sketch.)
243. “Jealous Brother” (Season 4, Episode 11) Key’s character is engaged to a Price Is Right model, and Peele — decked out in a truly wondrous comb-over — is very jealous.
242. “Bible Study” (Season 5, Episode 2) Jesus’ personal advice that a Bible-study group sell all their earthly belongings sparks them to flee.
241. “Levi and Cedric: Lightning in a Bottle” (Season 5, Episode 5) This is our first sight of K&P’s Levi and Cedric characters, two local guys who tend to philosophize on the stranger things in life, but you’ll certainly be hearing more from them down the list. Here, Levi literally has lightning in a bottle. Literally.
240. “Tell That to the Guy’s Wife” (Season 5, Episode 5)An example of how the phrase “tell that to the guy’s wife” can be taken far too literally.
239. “OK” (Season 5, Episode 4) K&P are two women at a bar. Key discusses a problem with his (her) man, while Peele can only say “okay” in various ways.
238. “Moving Help” (Season 5, Episode 8) “It’s a weird coincidence that you need space when I’m about to move.”
237. “Let Me Hit That” (Season 3, Episode 5) We’ve had this conversation before.
236. “Obama’s Anger Translator: Michelle’s Translator” (Season 3, Episode 5) A fun twist on a sketch that was getting a bit stale.
235. “Second Amendment” (Season 3, Episode 5) This is a great idea, about two guys from the future who go back in time to stop the Second Amendment from being signed, but the big moment at the end doesn’t quite pay off.
234. “White DJ” (Season 3, Episode 10) K&P want to hate the white “urban” DJ, but it’s tough when he loves them.
233. “Keep It Real” (Season 1, Episode 4) When you get a record deal, everyone wants a piece of you.
232. “Obama’s Anger Translator: Debates Are Over” (Season 2, Episode 5) This was another anger translator sketch. That’s all there really is to say about that.
231. “Delete It” (Season 1, Episode 2) K&P are two women who hate their own selfies so much, they can’t live normal lives.
230. “Bar Bump” (Season 5, Episode 10)A simple bump at a bar becomes much more when Peele aggressively and tentatively picks a fight with a giant dude.
229. “Jaden Smith” (Season 1, Episode 5) Peele is Jaden Smith, who just wants to be a normal boy but clearly cannot be one. This one doesn’t hold up quite as well because we now know that Jaden Smith is actually a philosophical GENIUS. But a house is a tiny mansion. A supermarket is a tiny mansion that has food in it.
228. “Rednecks Defying Stereotypes” (Season 4, Episode 1) The scene is set: K&P are in a redneck bar, Peele wears a confederate-flag baseball cap. They say nice things about Mexicans, Asians, blacks, and Indians in big southern accents in the tone of racist dickheads. But what they’re saying is actually nice. Get it?
227. “Les Mis” (Season 3, Episode 1) One joke here: Why is everyone in Les Misérables always singing over each other? Praise the high production values in this sketch.
226. “Wendell: Tech Support” (Season 3, Episode 6) This Wendell sketch drags a bit and certainly doesn’t have quite the same impact as the sad, grounded undertones of “Pizza Order,” but it follows the same beats.
225. “Obama and Malia” (Season 1, Episode 8) A runner sketch with Obama trying to teach Malia to do “normal people” things. It’s not as easy as it looks.
224. “Chris Brown and Rihanna Video” (Season 2, Episode 3)A good message here, but this parody of a new Chris Brown video is almost (scarily) too on-the-nose to have any comedic effect.
223. “Catcalling Dudes” (Season 1, Episode 3) One of what has to be tens of catcalling sketches in K&P’s arsenal, but you gotta love that rhino cameo at the end.
222. “Lando” (Season 3, Episode 10) No doubt about it: Lando was cool as fuck.
221. “Fraternity Branding” (Season 1, Episode 4) A fraternity branding goes horribly wrong when one member of the frat is branded with a straight-up dick on his chest.
220. “Dueling Trumpet Solos” (Season 3, Episode 10) The reverse trumpet at the end is a joy.
219. “Hitler Mustache” (Season 5, Episode 10)Key’s “Hitler” mustache is not a Hitler mustache, no, it’s a Charlie Chaplin mustache. And that swastika is just a movie prop, like a rubber chicken.
218. “Adoption Meeting” (Season 2, Episode 10) Jordan’s super-gay LaShawn character returns, this time to adopt a baby. He really wants to have a fun baby, like a “special-needs kid with white eyes that can tell the future.” These sketches always threaten to devolve into all kinds of offensive, but it’s a testament to the actors that it doesn’t tip into the cringeworthy.
217. “Biracial Penis” (Season 2, Episode 4) It’s like a bite-size Snickers.
216. “Obama’s Anger Translator: Addressing the Critics” (Season 4, Episode 7) The Luther sketches diminished in quality as time went on, unfortunately, and the joke became just Key “yelling.” However, this one had a drone strike, and for that, it transcended the sketch’s repetitiveness.
215. “Blind Guy in the Morgue” (Season 4, Episode 6) Peele is not actually blind, Key is not actually a mortician, and the dead guy isn’t actually dead.
214. “Celebrity Game” (Season 2, Episode 5) A game of celebrity with a gay climax (Peele is gay).
213. “Pre-Game Pump-Up” (Season 5, Episode 1)No team can have two pump-up guys. A game of one-upsmanship sends K&P on an epic action quest inside each other’s minds. The surrealism mostly works.
212. “Wendell: The Power of Wings” (Season 3, Episode 11) Poor Wendell’s music video runs out of money halfway through production.
211. “Grass-Fed Beef” (Season 1, Episode 6) It’s fancy meat from the Pacific Ocean.
210. “Satanic Flatulence” (Season 5, Episode 9
One of those sketches where a tailor is sizing up a client and the client has the devil in his ass. This was the final appearance of Peele’s “California douchebag” character, and it’s somehow fitting that it involves a demonic fart.
209. “Black Hawk Up” (Season 1, Episode 2)Helicopters: They’re terrifying. Even for traffic reporters.
208. “Money in Your Ear” (Season 5, Episode 2) An old man finds a lot of (literal) things in a child’s ear.
207. “Black Republicans” (Season 3, Episode 3) They’re nothing if not diverse. A funny idea that doesn’t elicit genuine laughs until the man pokes his head in and announces that “someone’s white wife is here to pick them up,” prompting a mass exodus to the parking lot.
206. “Soldier Comes Home” (Season 4, Episode 2)A smart play on the “soldier comes home and plays with dog” vids. Key is a soldier who goes straight for the dog, ignoring the kids. Under a minute, gets the job done.
205. “Obama’s Anger Translator: Debate Response” (Season 2, Episode 3) This message brought to you by the letter “suck my” and the number “dick.”
204. “Morning Photo” (Season 1, Episode 7) Do NOT take a photo of your girlfriend in the morning. Just don’t do it.
203. “Terrorist Food Truck” (Season 5, Episode 3) One of a number of K&P “terrorist” bits, this one poses the question: Is a food truck more lucrative than terrorist-ing? A solid premise that doesn’t quite build on the initial joke.
202. “Gospel Choir” (Season 5, Episode 4) “This is your note.”
201. “Hula Hoop Friends” (Season 2, Episode 3)They’re not double-penetrating a woman together, they’re hula-hooping!
200. “Shot in the Dick” (Season 1, Episode 4) This was a hip-hop music video about a rapper being shot in the dick.
199. “Obama’s Anger Translator: I Sunk Your Battleship, Bitch” (Season 2, Episode 2) Obama’s post-debate message to Romney, and about the point when all the anger translator bits started to run together.
198. “Valets: Game of Thrones Recap” (Season 5, Episode 9) The valets work best when they’re getting pumped about cultural icons or more specific actors (Liam Neesons, what up), but this one seemed too logical. Everyone’s already going nuts for Game of Thrones. Still, the inflection on their “Khaleesseez” is a joy.
197. “Save the Children” (Season 4, Episode 3) Only $5, and you can literally save the children. From a van. That they’re trapped in.
196. “Undercover Boss” (Season 5, Episode 7) An Undercover Boss spoof. Peele reveals himself as the secret president of the company after initially posing as an employee and getting tons of shit from Key’s disgruntled employee during his time there. When the truth is revealed, Key tries to repent.
195. “White Guys Watching Amistad” (Season 1, Episode 6)Lots of white guys want to talk about Amistad with black people.
194. “Little Zachary” (Season 4, Episode 9) Peele is dating Little Zachary’s mom (Key), and they have a picnic where Peele explains he will never spank Zachary, unlike his own father. But when Zachary reveals himself to be an evil, evil child … what are you gonna do?
193.“Bald Brotherhood” (Season 2, Episode 4)Key plays a character who can’t find his people in prison, so he joins the Bald Guys Gang, which may or may not be a group of skinheads. This sketch was basically an excuse to watch Key get his ass kicked in different, exciting ways. BGG 4EVER.
192. “Terrior-ist” (Season 3, Episode 3)The difference between a terrorist and a terrior-ist? Semantics.
191.“Limo Driver” (Season 1, Episode 5)Key is a limo driver who may or may not be listening to all the insane stuff Peele is saying. This sketch basically builds toward its diabolical final line.
190. “Awkward Convo” (Season 5, Episode 5) Peele’s face in this is a hotbed of emotions.
189. “Menstruation Orientation” (Season 5, Episode 2) The second appearance of K&P’s men who are actually women. This time, they’re giving a TED Talk about periods.
188. “Awesome Hitler Story” (Season 4, Episode 2) Key tries to play dead while Ty Burrell’s Nazi character from “Das Negroes” tells his favorite Hitler story. The fun of this bit lies entirely in Key’s physical comedy.
187. “Gangster With Poop in His Pants” (Season 1, Episode 3)“How you want me to smoke somebody when I got poop in my pants?”
186. “Tim Cook Meltdown at iPhone 5 Launch” (Season 2, Episode 3) Tim Cook is crazy, and won’t have it any other way.
185. “Turbulence” (Season 5, Episode 2) It’s not against the law to use the bathroom when the seatbelt sign is on? IS IT AGAINST THE LAW? Extra points for Peele’s neutral demon face as the flight attendant who’s watching Key flail around the plane after disobeying the sign.
184. “Ancestry.com” (Season 1, Episode 1) A memorable sketch from the series premiere that, at the time, set the tone for K&P’s humor. In this parody commercial, the white people find out they’re all related to people like Aristotle and Alexander the Great, while all the African-Americans are related to Thomas Jefferson.
183. “Dueling Magical Negroes” (Season 1, Episode 5) So many magical negroes, just one troubled white businessman. This was a super-funny idea that sort of devolved into chaos, but had a lovely button at the end.
182. “Sexting Scandal” (Season 5, Episode 5) Politician can’t stop sending dick pics.
181. “Sex Addict Wendell” (Season 4, Episode 10)The culmination of Peele’s wonderfully uncomfortable Wendell character. Here, he joins a sex-addict support group.
180. “Crackheads” (Season 1, Episode 8) This is the first appearance of Key’s pimp-esque landlord character, who really doesn’t like crackheads.This sketch essentially works as a build to its button, when it turns out Peele and his nice girlfriend are crackheads (because of course they are).
179. Killing an African Warlord” (Season 2, Episode 7) He just can’t kill his boss!
178. “Hell’s Kitchen Parody” (Season 1, Episode 1) The very first of what would be litany of TV and film parodies for K&P, this sketch is a comment on every reality show, really — a host that builds to praise with a critique and then praises again, just to bait and switch the audience — but does so with aplomb. (Let it be known: I will use the word aplomb once again on this list.)
177. “Obama’s Anger Translator — Reelection” (Season 1, Episode 4) Does your World Trade Center hurt? Then why don’t you take two bin Ladens and feel better in the morning. Luther was speaking for all of us here. Good callback to “The Negraph” sketch at the end.
176. “The Telemarketer” (Season 5, Episode 9) How does it feel when the telemarketer hangs up on you? Not good is the answer. Not good at all.
175. “Ultimate Fighting Match Preview” (Season 1, Episode 6) The chosen fighter will win.
174. “Andre and Meegan’s First Date” (Season 5, Episode 3)One of the darkest Meegan sketches, this season-five sketch reveals her to be even more of a heinous, horrible person than originally suspected. She spends her first date with Andre berating a waiter with condescending lines like, “Don’t be sorry … be better.” I’ve never quite understood Key’s Andre character in these bits — like Keanu circa 1996? — but I still like him.
173. “Mattress Shopping” (Season 4, Episode 3) Peele’s oversexed, dweeby character goes to buy a mattress from a store. He tries out each bed using highly sexual physical gestures. The reveal: It’s his neighbors doing the fucking; he’s just trying to get a good night’s sleep. Actually one of several characters that involves Peele performing a sexual act by himself, to great comic effect.
172. “Obama’s College Years” (Season 2, Episode 1) A fun runner sketch about how Obama smoked a lot of pot in college, especially while publicly pontificating.
171. “Canine Unit” (Season 2, Episode 5) Key is a reporter in a bite suit, getting bitten by a dog over and over. The physical humor is exactly as funny as it sounds.
170. “Valets: Valley Kilmers” (Season 5, Episode 6) “What about Valley Kilmers in The Willows, though?” In this one, the valets get on imaginary horses and gallop.They also do pretty delectable Kilmer impressions.
169. “Old School” (Season 1, Episode 6) An old guy at the club wants it real old-school from the DJ. Like real old-school. Like pre–old school old-school.
168. “Bachelor Party” (Season 2, Episode 4) “Bup bup bup bup” is K&P’s version of “yadda yadda yadda.”
167. “Text Message Confusion” (Season 4, Episode 3)Confusion about text tones reaches a fever pitch. This was a huge viral hit before season four began, and rightfully so: It’s a solid concept about something we all deal with on a near-daily basis.
166. “Levi and Cedric: Foghorn Dickhorn” (Season 3, Episode 8) All you really need to know is that this sketch includes the name Foghorn Dickhorn.
165. “Futbol Flops” (Season 3, Episode 5) Peele is a soccer player who will do anything to draw that red card. Even … die?
164. “Guys With Guns” (Season 2, Episode 1) Two cool guys with guns find themselves facing serious street obstacles in slow-motion.
163. “Obamacare” (Season 4, Episode 6) An old man who hates Obama so much, he refuses to benefit from Obamacare, even if it means removing his heart from his surgeried chest. K&P’s timely political stuff could sometimes be too on-the-nose to have any effect beyond its obvious intention, but this one (literally!) strikes a nerve.
162. “Black Theatre” (Season 3, Episode 8) “How they gonna kill Othello?” This is basically the valets sketch in Shakespearean England. The final creation of “Shafte” was wonderous.
161. “Slave Fight” (Season 3, Episode 3) Jack McBrayer is a slave owner who pits K&P against each other in a Django Unchained–style slave fight.
160. “Sex With Black Guys” (Season 3, Episode 11) Slightly racist white girls debate the merits of sleeping with black guys. Just gets more and more racist, but the guys can’t decide their breaking point and still make a play for action. The button is perfect.
159. “Ultimate Cock-Blocker” (Season 1, Episode 7) Peele is the ultimate cock-blocker, even in stick-figure land. The end of this sketch elicited smiles from everyone in the room I first watched this in, in case that kind of thing appeals to you.
158. “Obama Meets With Republicans” (Season 1, Episode 5) Paul F. Tompkins shoves paper in his mouth and tapes it to his face in this od
