Jordan Peele’s Comedy and Horror Aren’t That Far Apart
Powerhouse comedian Jordan Peele surprised and delighted audiences in 2017 with his runaway hit horror film Get Out. Now, the Mad TV and Key & Peele alum is following up his breakout success in the horror industry with a string of new releases. Us hits theaters this week, The Twilight Zone is coming back to CBS in April, and cosmic-horror-historical-drama Lovecraft Country is in development at HBO. Peele’s foray into horror might seem confusing to audiences who knew and loved him for his comedic genius. But if we examine Peele’s comedy and horror writing more closely, one big similarity explains how the transition between genres seems so seamless.
