In an era where big college athletics see rosters with littered with names like Ha-Ha Clinton Dix, Mister Cobble, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and (coming soon) Lourawls “Tum Tum” Nairn, the comedic work of Key and Peele matters more than ever.
The Key and Peele East/West College bowl sketch lampooning the ridiculous real life names of college basketball and college football players these days was immensely hilarious and hugely popular.
Recently, Key and Peele, which airs on Comedy Central Wednesday night, released an East/West College bowl sequel. Which was just as hilarious and popular as the first. Their roster names like Lecarpetron Dookmarriot and Hingle McCringleberry are hysterical. Yet some real life names are even more absurd. When K&P break out X-Wing @Aliciousness and The Player Formerly Known as Mousecop- that’s great satire! Taking reality and making it even more silly than it is.
Key and Peele are back with a East/West Bowl rap battle. The East is an 80s style Chicago Bears Super Bowl Shuffle video. The West is a more contemporary style rhymefest. Key and Peele does a hilarious President Barack Obama spoof too.
