** "Office Homophobe" also does this, with the CampGay thinking he's being discriminated against by someone he brands as the titular homophobe - who turns out to be StraightGay.

Added DiffLines:

* ForegoneConclusion: Possibly. One of the ''earliest'' Meegan and Andre sketches, the "Meegan Your Jacket" one, ends with [[spoiler:Andre following Meegan with her jacket until they collapse in a desolate wasteland where several other boyfriends and their girlfriends have died a long time ago.]] And the last Meegan and Andre sketch [[StatusQuoIsGod has Meegan guilt Andre out of breaking up with her,]] so this could still play out.

** The whole show runs on this (mostly of the "Let's see how far we can ramp up the insanity" variety, but they do dabble in the "Let's make light of something serious" variety of RefugeInAudacity), but nowhere more than the [[http://www.comedycentral.com/video-clips/5fndtz/key-and-peele-key---peele--east-west-bowl East/West Bowl sketch]]. And it's just a list of names. It starts with comparatively reasonable names like "D'Marcus Williumz", "T.J. Juckson", and "Ibrahim Moizoos", and gets to unbridled insanity like "[[PunctuationShaker X-Wing @Aliciousness]]", "[[OverlyLongName T.J. A.J. R.J. Backslashinfourth V]]", "[[HellIsThatNoise EEEEE EEEEEEEEE]]", "[[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud Torque [Construction Noise] Lewith]]", "[[TheTropeFormerlyKnownAsX [The Player Formerly Known as Mousecop]]]", and "[[TokenWhite Dan Smith]] [[UsefulNotes/{{Mormonism}} from BYU]]". [[http://youtu.be/rT1nGjGM2p8 The 2013 season is even more ridiculous.]] There's names like ''[[EveryoneKnowsMorse Morse Code spoken in Morse Code]]'', ''[[NonIndicativeName Harvard University]]''[[note]]...[=DeVry=] University[[/note]], ''[[OnlyOneName Fudge]]'', ''[[TheFaceless Firstname Lastname]]'','' BenedictCumberbatch, [[RepetitiveName Jammie Jammie-Jammie]]'', [[CallBack A.A.

* OddNameOut: in the first East-West Bowl skit (where the other players are all played by Key and Peele with increasingly absurd names), the last player is a TokenWhite from Brigham Young University named Dan Smith.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenWhite: Always the OddNameOut at the end of the various East-West Bowl sketches.

* BaitAndSwitch: The beginning sketch of "Parole Officer Puppet" has a news anchor talking about two men who were arrested for domestic violence. It's revealed at end of it that the anchor is actually the sportscaster.



* BigBudgetBeefUp:
** Sketches like the Obama and Luther ones or "Roommate Meeting" only need one set, compared to the zombie one and "Alien Impostors" which not only use outdoor sets but have practical and special effects to boot. Some others like the LesMiserables parody and "Pirate Chantey" may use just one set, but the costumes and makeup are extensive to say the least.

'''''Key & Peele''''' is a sketch comedy show starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele from the FOX sketch show ''Series/{{MADtv}}''. The show premiered on January 31, 2012 on Creator/ComedyCentral. It ended on September 9, 2015. In terms of format, it brings to mind a mix of ''Series/ChappellesShow'' and the last two seasons of ''[=MADtv=]'' (seasons 13 and 14, spanning from 2007 to 2009) when the show was moved to the Henry Ford Music Box Theater and most of the sketches shown were low-budget short films and music videos to compete with the digital shorts on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''.

* AlternateTimeline: Believe it or not, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5Zdp1RfoyI "Family Matters"]] sketch. Due to Jaleel White being a psychotic murderous psychic, ''Series/FamilyMatters'' wound up lasting for another six seasons. It's worth pointing out that the sketch took place in 1997, one year before it got ''cancelled''...
