Simply Hillarious

It's what I imagine hanging out with him in agroup at a party would be like. He's laid back, unscripted (I think) and hillarious.

A Terrific Listen!

The whole series was a delight to listen to. The history, the references, the research, and the creativity of both writers (Elle Key and Keegan Michael Key) made this an educational treat. It was impossible not to laugh along as Keegan cracked himself up playing characters in the wonderful, timeless sketches he revisited. A great teacher!
