Key & Peele kicking off Super Bowl weekend with hourlong sketch special on Comedy Central

Comedy Central has teamed up with the NFL to produce its first-ever official Super Bowl comedy special, and it’ll be an hourlong sketch spectacular from Key & Peele‘s Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

Key & Peele Super Bowl Special (#KeyAndPeeleSuperBowlSpecial) will premiere at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Friday, Jan. 30th, and encore again that Saturday — the night before Super Bowl XLIX — at 11 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.

From the network’s announcement:

The special will feature Key and Peele anchoring the ultimate Super Bowl comedy event, using the ubiquitous sports news-desk format to celebrate professional football, its most beloved personalities and the grandest day on its calendar: Super Bowl Sunday. Channeling all of the energy and excitement on the ground at Super Bowl XLIX in Arizona, the special will include sketch-comedy vignettes featuring to-be-announced NFL players and a possible Super Bowl edition of the popular “East-West Bowl” sketch from “Key & Peele.” In the weeks leading up to the special, Key and Peele will also post their playoff predictions in a series of social-media videos.

Here are the first three East-West College Bowl sketches to enjoy once more:

Or…Celebrate by watching all of the available Key & Peele sketches on YouTube so far from the first four seasons!

The “Key & Peele Super Bowl Special” also will be available Feb. 2-8 in the Comedy Central App and On Demand.
