Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele
Tuesday on TV: Surprise! Comedy Central's "Key & Peele" is actually funny

This doesn't happen with any great frequency. Comedy Central has a new show that's actually funny.

Key & Peele (11:30 p.m., Comedy Centrall) is a half hour of sketch comedy that hits more than it misses. Keegan-Michael Key ("MADtv," "Reno 911," "Gary Unmarried") and Jordan Peele ("MADtv," "Children's Hospital") are funny guys.

And because they're African-American - actually, bi-racial - they make jokes about race that might be seen as inappropriate if somebody else was doing it.

When "Key & Peele" sketches miss, they're OK. When they hit, they're hilarious.
