Quotes of Keegan-Michael Key

#Quote
1In regard to our show(Key and Peele), some people ask me sometimes ''What is the greatest thing that can happen to your show?'' I said the greatest thing that can happen to my show, is that a kid watches something on whatever the equivalent of YouTube is 75 years from now and goes ''Why is this funny? I don't understand this.'' (Meaning that hopefully Americans will have solved the racism issues in the near future and thus kids won't understand the shows humor on racism issues.)
2I was a special-needs child. It was like, 'Here's a kid with no arm. Here's a blind kid. Here is a biracial kid. Let's take the blind one.' So because I'm high yellow, I'm special needs, which means I would dominate at the Special Olympics.
3Our show is not based on huge characters. There are characters in our show; whether or not they reoccur is based on the audience. MADtv (1995) was a formula - our show doesn't have one,. We try to incorporate the shows. We're not trying to be cool here. We're trying to be funny. If you watch the beginning of certain shows, you notice that they're trying too hard to be hipsters and be cool. We're like, 'Why are you trying to be a badass?' We realize that we're nerds. Our goal in life is to get the laughs.
