Join Emmy Award-winners Keegan-Michael Key (The Prom, Key & Peele) and John Oliver (Last Week Tonight, The Daily Show) for a conversation about sketch comedy’s deep roots – from theater troupes of the European Renaissance to Chicago’s Second City and Key’s own groundbreaking Comedy Central series with Jordan Peele.
Key’s new Audible Original The History of Sketch Comedy is equal parts master class and personal story, detailing the fascinating creative origins of the art form and its kaleidoscopic, hilarious variations. See him and Oliver discuss the comedy heroes who inspired the project, the origins of landmark sketch characters, stories from behind the scenes at their own shows, and much more.
