Comedy Central announced earlier this summer that “Key & Peele” will end its five year run in September. In honor of a show that’s provided plenty of laughs, here are my picks for the 10 funniest “Key & Peele” sketches, in no particular order. Check each title for a link. Warning, many of these skits contain colorful language. 

Substitute Teacher - After watching this sketch not only did I call anyone I knew named Aaron, “A-A-Ron” I’d also phonetically change anyone else’s name as well. This is why I call my daughter Grace, “G-Race.”

Obama’s Anger Translator - We all wish we had an anger translator like Luther. Someone who said what we think would come in handy. But also probably get us into a lot of trouble. 

East/West College Bowl (clip above) - The introductions start like a typical football game then the names start to get crazy. Tyroil Smoochie-Wallace? Jackmerius Tacktheritrix?! Hingle McCringleberry?!? Dan Smith?!?! And don’t forget, Colorado’s own Adams State gets a shout out.   

White Zombies - Evidently people can be racist even when they’re zombies. When I first saw this skit I laughed so hard milk came out my nose. And I wasn’t drinking milk. Kevin Sorbo makes an appearance. 

TeachingCenter (clip below) - If the world were as it should be, teachers would be paid like pro athletes. Then you’d hear things like, “His father lived paycheck to paycheck as a humble pro football player.” Irony isn’t lost on Key & Peele. 

Strike Force Eagle 3: The Reckoning - A spoof of 80s action movies complete with silly fight scenes, ridiculous dialogue and a cliched villain. Anna Camp has a cameo that doesn’t end well. 

I Said B%tch - Two men act tough when their women aren’t around. They’re brave enough to say a certain word when they think no one can hear them and will go at any lengths for privacy. 

Liam Neesons - This is the only clip you’ll ever see where people recognize the underrated movie “Dark Man.” Bruce Willie gets some love too.  

Meegan, Come Back - Everyone’s had a boyfriend or girlfriend that just wasn’t good for them. This is a good example of one. Jordan Peele’s Meegan voice just cracks me up. 

Auction Block - A twist on a slave auction. Key & Peele take something that shouldn’t be funny at all and spin it.
