    Key and Peele’s sketches are by far the best you can have right now. It’s
    insane how they’ve maintained a level so high in the last couple of season.

    Definitely retiring at their peak.

    Its kinda funny to see how Americans treat there presidents, especially
    from the point of view of an Australian, where a great deal of us have very
    little respect in our prime minister.

    Key is funny but i think its kinda pathetic how he worships Obama like
    that. I mean yea Obama seems like a cool guy but he’s also the worst
    president in American history.

    See, my husband!!! That’s how you do this. What was the greatest day of
    your life? Earnest, WATCH and LEARN. If you’re curious, my husband is the
    awesome Earnest Pettie who was frequently on the hilarious show YouTube
    Nation. He’s on a lot of the episodes because they had a “Stump Earnest”
    game with the viewers. And yes, he is the best husband in the world, minus
    this one moment – in one episode he had to be reminded by his awesome
    female co-worker that you do NOT SAY ANY OTHER DAY WAS THE BEST DAY OF YOUR
    LIFE IF YOU ARE STILL HAPPILY MARRIED. I count that as the only time he got
    stumped.

    Say what you want about his politics (well, not whatever you want, let’s to
    try keep it as logical as possible GOP) but Obama is easily the most
    relatable and coolest president in U.S. History.

    Hearing his feedback on the honor to represent the President for that
    political comedy skit on the White House correspondent dinner is priceless!
    I could imagine Obama cracking up during rehearsals. :’D

    Good job for Keegan, well deserved…

    Red dot, red dot!! :’D

    If you haven’t seen the White House correspondent dinner, and American
    political humor is up your alley, go watch it now!

    This is so funny to me because I just discovered Key and Peele on CC
    yesterday and was in the middle of binge watching them and he got
    interviewed the same day that I even learned who he was. Jimmy and I are on
    the same wavelength.

    Jimmy Fallon is really a terrible late night host. His fake laughter ruins
    interviews and he can’t keep up with guests so comically so he just repeats
    what they say. The only good part about his show is when he plays games
    with guests and even a lot of those are painfully staged. Kimmel and Conan
    are far better than Fallon.

    Jimmy does not want to attention to be on anyone except himself. Its under
    the surface, but we can all see it, Jimmy wants to audience to be laughing
    at his highlight reel from his earlier works.

    i hate how the guests always are doing some skit or telling a story and
    Jimmy just has chime with them and act along rather than listen to them.
    why the hell does he need to be apart of their story, he desperately just
    wanted to be the center of attention

    Watching jimmy as a host has made me more confident thst now I think I can
    actually host that show myself.

    Laugh at everything the guest says and clap your hands a few times if you
    really wanna fake it .
    Jump in the conversation by repeating the last two words of the guest.
    Play a few games they have prepared for you.
    Read the small notes in your desk.
    Read the big notes or the teleprompter behind the camera.
    Get a big check and fuck everyone.

    I mean i really liked this Jimmy guy they chose for this show he seemed
    like a happy and positive guy and made me feel good too with his postivity.
    But after time that gets boring and now you realize he is faking his laugh
    and the whole thing now feels as a scam.
