Today’s interview is with Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele from the Comedy Central sketch show “Key & Peele.” On the show today they discuss this sketch about a substitute teacher who takes roll call.

Jordan Peele talks about the importance of names in African American culture:

If we really dig deep into it, especially when talking about African American culture, names have such a deep history, just from having our names taken away in the first place and being renamed. Now it feels like 80% of African American population has the name “Washington” or “Jefferson,” some president or slave owner’s name. I almost wonder, ‘Is this part of a way of taking back the principle of naming your kid something of your choice?’

Key & Peele keep earning their spot on our Most Creative People list.
