Key and Peele put their spin on 1980s aerobics videos

Leave it to Key & Peele to reveal what aerobics videos were really like in the 1980’s.

In a new sketch from the duo, they star as “Flash” and “Lightning” in a live taping of the 1987 Jazz Fit Championships—apparently a competition in which they try to outlast each other on the dance floor. Regardless, when Lightning gets some bad news about his family, things get real.

Key and Peele's ultimate comedy curriculum, from 'Who's on First?' to 'Veep'

What are the essential sketches, performers, and shows every comedy nerd should know? EW’s guest editors Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele offer a master class. Warning: Some of the clips ahead contain strong language.

As Key says, “I don’t know if there’s ever been anybody in history working at a level like he was working at. To have that much talent, that much charm, that much discipline, all of that wrapped up into one. To think about 48 Hrs., Trading Places. Aw, man!” Adds Peele: “If I had a kid and I wanted to form him into a perfect comedy nerd, I would tell him to watch the Saturday Night Live sketch where he puts on whiteface and he goes on the bus, and the last [nonwhite] guy walks off the bus and everyone starts a party. They’re passing around cigars and sh–. That’s a huge one.” READ FULL STORY

Did EW photoshop Key and Peele?

Here at EW, we try to capture the essence of the celebrities we photograph and show them as they truly exist in the world. Of course, everyone wants to be seen in the best light, literally. But two of our subjects were so unhappy with each other’s appearance, they demanded a few changes. Given that these two people were Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, guest editors of this week’s issue of EW, we had little choice but to slightly enhance their image with just a few tweaks—a mustache here, a bird there. (Click here for the full-size image.) Anyway, it’s probably just best that you watch the video below. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: 'Almost Human, 'Catching Fire,' 'Key and Peele,' and more

What’s worthy of PopWatching this week? Well, consider this week the calm before the holiday-movie storm. Next week is Thanksgivukkah and then a virtual Christmas-movie-marathon-mania follows. Before you get your dose of jolly caroling cheer, scenes of holly-trimmed (and secretly hostile) family dinners, and everyone quoting Love Actually, consider this your bah, Humbug! week, filled with a stocking’s worth of everything that’s anti-holiday — teens killing teens, crime-solving robots, and sardonic humor. Merry watching!

All times listed are Eastern.

Key & Peele recap all the 'Die Hard' movies -- VIDEO

We’ve finally found the duo most excited for this weekend’s new Die Hard installment, A Good Day to Die Hard — it’s these two zesty, possibly drug-addled valets played by Key & Peele‘s Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Watch below as they reminisce at a lightning-fast pace about their favorite, somewhat shady memories from Die Hards 1 through 4. Remember when Voldemort, Urkel’s Dad, J.J.’s Dad, and Timothy Elephants, and that one guy from the computer commercial all starred alongside “Bruce Willies”? No? Better catch up! READ FULL STORY

What pop culture we're thankful for this Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for Downton Abbey‘s imminent return to television in the States. Yes, Jan. 6 is still a few weeks away, but I can’t wait to see whether Matthew (Dan Stevens) and Mary (Michelle Dockery) actually walk down the aisle — they really need to, I couldn’t take another breakup — and what brand of American sass Shirley MacLaine brings with her across the pond. Plus, on a more sappy note, the series spawned a regular Sunday night Masterpiece viewing/wine-drinking party with a group of friends that is priceless to me.

I’ve also polled my EW colleagues to ask what they are most grateful for pop culture wise this turkey day. See what they said below!
