Added DiffLines:

** Key in general.

Added DiffLines:

** Key plays this in most of his characters. It's part of the charm.

Added DiffLines:

* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: The song in "Nonstop Party" includes lyrics like "We gonna party all night till the party don't stop/And the party don't stop because it keeps on going".


* ScaryBlackMan: When Key is on the phone and Peele walks past on his phone, speaking in a very tough gangster voice. Key deepens his voice in order to not come across as a pushover, then when Key is out of earshot, Peel's voice goes up an octave as he says ''"Oh, my god! I almost got mugged!"''

* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Series/{{MADtv}}'' and ''Series/ChappellesShow''. This is even lampshaded in the latest Dave Chappelle special, when he notes how mad he gets "watching Key and Peele doing my show."

* FramingDevice: The first three seasons featured Key and Peele setting up the sketches in front of a live audience. Seasons four and five drop this and instead use scenes of Key and Peele taking an extended road trip through the desert, which ends up in the series finale [[spoiler:as a CallBack to the first episode's "I Said Bitch" sketch]].

* BoomerangBigot: Purple Falcon and Yellow Falcon are Asian and Native-American respectively, yet have no issue referring to the African-American Green Falcon by the racially insensitive name "Black Falcon". When he turns the tables on them, that`s when they find it racist.

* TheBully: Peele plays one that openly voices all of his problems to his victim (as does his father), with Key's character asking why he's so open with his issues and yet still a bully.[[note]]To hear him tell it, he's afraid that introspection might make him dredge up even more morbid, deep-seated emotional problems.[[/note]]

** During Creator/LiamNeeson's guest appearance, Key and Peele go into such a huge fangasm that they ''explode'' - then reappear as [[Franchise/StarWars Force ghosts]].

Added DiffLines:

** Wendell`s "The Power of Wings" music video goes from an epic-looking tale of swords and sorcery to a cheap-looking backyard piece with no cast, crudely-made props, shoddy picture quality and rough sound. Even the plot gets worse, going from just being minimalist and familiar to downright cliche ([[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack the masked warlock that Wendell fights is revealed to be his doppelganger]]).


Added DiffLines:

** One of the West Coast players introduces himself as "Benedict Cumberbatch - Oxford University" in a high-brow British accent.


* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Of a sort, more like background commentary. During the Mccringleberry skits, the sportscasters make some bizarre asides as we watch the antics on the gridiron: one even nostalgically talks about vacationing with his family in Bogata and being kidnapped and tortured by a cartel.
