The Mad Brilliance of Key & Peele


It’s an alt-comedy edition of “The Vulture TV Podcast”! Gazelle Emami, Matt Zoller Seitz, and guest host Jesse David Fox discuss the brilliance of Key & Peele — which Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele just announced will be ending after its fifth season — particularly, Jordan Peele’s “eerie, Peter Sellers–like madness.” Plus, we pick sides in the battle between Netflix's two comedy reboots: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp vs. Arrested Development’s fifth season.
