Critic Reviews for Key & Peele Season 5

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (10)

Key & Peele is not like other sketch shows, and its excellent, hour-long series finale, which alternated between callbacks and ambitious, off-the-wall bits, felt strangely of a piece with its stars' body of work over the past three years.

After an episode of "Key & Peele," not only do you laugh, but you feel like your brain was fed. It's like taking a comedy vitamin.

Both are brilliant mimics and outrageously creative improv stars who now comprise the most successful comedy duo on television.

"Key & Peele" once again displays compelling characters, crazy adventures and political satire, offering up a hilarious look at the world utilizing the stars' lively chemistry and keen observations.

As Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele said good-bye to their boundary-pushing Comedy Central show, they made one interesting choice that punctuated five seasons of social commentary.

Did it at some point pass Chappelle's Show, for instance, as Comedy Central's best sketch series? I would say it did (though Inside Amy Schumer still has some time to catch up).

These interstitial sequences continue to drive (heh-heh) home the quick-witted nature of these guys. They have an improv don't say!

Jul 30, 2015 | Rating: 7.8/10 | Full Review…

The series still has life and is willing to take risks, which gives us faith that the new season has some treats in store for sketch comedy fans.

Jul 9, 2015 | Full Review…

Key and Peele returns to Comedy Central on Wednesday night with an exceedingly strong half-hour that once again demonstrates the range of not only the duo's performance skills, but their ideas as well.

There was also room in the finale for some of the pop culture-inspired silliness that "Key & Peele" does every bit as well as the hot-button subjects.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

So...goodbye, valets. Goodbye, substitute teacher. Goodbye, Hingle McCringleberry. We'll never forget you (or be able to say your name without giggling).

Audience Reviews for Key & Peele: Season 5

  • Jul 29, 2015
    The creativity and fresh sketches highlight season 5, of course at the lack of the same comedy from the other seasons, it reaches new heights and has a spot as one of the best skit shows, if not the best, of all time
  • Jul 29, 2015
    Creative sketches, great acting and just enough political satire make the show consistently a must watch. Like most shows, you'll have to endure a couple mediocre sketches, but they make the others even better.
  • Jul 22, 2015
    this show is pure comedy gold it is hilarious and brilliant
