Cue up your favorite Liam Neesons movie and limber up those hands for a game of slap ass: Key & Peele will kick off season four tonight. To mark the occasion—and to tip our silliest of silly hats to this ridiculously clever and inventive sketch series—we tapped the two stars, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, to serve as guest editors of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly. Not surprisingly, they showcased a whole new set of skills. But given that we can never get enough of their impressions, we also asked them to whip out their best impersonations of each other. And not only do you get to enjoy this freakiest of Fridays swap on a Wednesday, you get to vote for who nails the other one better. Key has a word of warning before making your selection, though. He urges you to choose “not which impression is the most entertaining, but which impression is the most accurate.” Watch the video and then vote with your conscience. Or your computer.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have made a habit out of going big in the season premieres of Key & Peele—last season’s Les Miserables sketch being no exception. This year, it seems the comedy duo has decided to take on an alien apocalypse in the first episode.
Comedy Central’s Key & Peele has debuted a number of memorable characters over its first three seasons, but few are more memorable than Luther, President Obama’s anger translator. He and the president are taking a break from their regular addresses to the American people, however, to premiere “Where You At,” an exclusive new music video that brings some of Key & Peele‘s favorites together for the first time.
The strange, quirky journey of FX’s Fargo continues next Tuesday with the appearance of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele — Key & Peele, if you will. What brings the hot comedic duo to cold-ass Minnesota? They play FBI agents who are trying to hunt down mysterious hit man Lorne Malvo, played by Billy Bob Thornton — or Billy Bob Thorntons, as the valets might say — after a not-so-pleasant encounter with him. As you can see in this clip from the episode, they might be focused on the wrong target. READ FULL STORY
Alright times three: Who wants to witness another gloriously gonzo Matthew McConaughey speech?

Comedy Central just gave Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele a very “nooice” deal.

Everyone likes to engage in a spirited discussion about pop culture, but the ones had between the valets on Key & Peele? Level: NEXT. Fans of the Comedy Central sketch series know that these car parkers, played by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, hold a special place in their 200-beats-per-minute hearts for the badass side of Liam Neesons*, also known as Liam Neeson. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if these excitable valets actually met the Taken star, today is your luckiest of days: The trio join forces in a Comedy Central promo for Neeson’s new action thriller Non-Stop. What was it like for Key and Peele to share camera time with the man who “straight killed a robot boat”? “We knew he was a true badass when he showed up to the set with a cup of tea… like, with a teacup and saucer,” Peele tells EW. “We asked him if people call him ‘Liam Neesons.’ He said, ‘Oh yeah, it happens all the time. I don’t mind it.’ It was a dream come true.” See for yourself below and start counting the days until a Bruce Willy encounter. READ FULL STORY

If you miss the season 3 premiere of Key & Peele tonight on Comedy Central, you better avoid the Internet and the water cooler tomorrow, for fear of hearing the most quotable lines and hilarious plot points before you get a chance to enjoy them yourselves.
Keegan Michael Key is living that exact nightmare right now: While his wife is in Europe, he promised to avoid watching the latest Breaking Bad until she got back — meaning he has yet to see “Ozymandias,” one of the most thrilling hours of television ever. Now, he’s walking in a veritable minefield of spoilers everywhere he goes. “I hope she understands the sacrifice that I am making,” Key told EW today. “She gets to go to France, and I’m sitting here on my ass not watching Breaking Bad.”
His comedy comrade Jordan Peele, meanwhile, is reveling in Key’s discomfort. “The major difference between Keegan and I is that he can’t lie,” Peele said. “He has, like, a moral compass, especially to his wife. He just won’t lie. For me, this would have just been taken care of. I’d just watch it and play it cool and have to watch it twice. … It’s fun to watch someone with morals squirm.”
The moral of the story: Don’t be that guy! Below, Key and Peele share six reasons fans definitely need to join them (and their many alter egos) for tonight’s premiere:

You can thank President Barack Obama for this one, Key & Peele fans. Comedy Central’s sketch comedy series starring the multifaceted duo of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele has been renewed for a third season. Thirteen more episodes of political incorrectness await in the fall of 2013.
“Since Obama won re-election, it only seems fair that we would give Key & Peele another season,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s head of original programming and production, in a press release.
Key and Peele recently visited fan President Obama and regularly impersonate him in their skits. “We are so thrilled about the pick-up and want to thank Comedy Central for four more years!” Key and Peele said in a press release. “Oh wait, what’s that? One more year? Oh … okay, that will work too.”
The show’s season finale will air tomorrow at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central.

Don’t cry because Key & Peele‘s sophomore season is almost over — smile because it happened, and also because the following sketch is the show’s perfect capper.
In “Hatz” — a bit that will air as part of Key & Peele‘s second season finale — Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele become embroiled in an intense game of sartorial one-upmanship. It’s sort of like an inversion of SNL‘s “Ladies Who Lunch” sketch, except nobody can accuse this one of ripping off Tim and Eric. To say anything more would mean ruining the joke, so I’ll stop here and just urge you to get in there, dog, get in there get in there get in there:
