I don’t know if these guys even play golf, but since my Dream Foursome is a theoretical construct, mathematically and logistically implausible, it doesn’t really matter, does it.
They would be good company for four-or-so hours on a sunny afternoon on a muni in Mukilteo or in the dankest basement bar in the worst part of town. I somehow don’t feel them hanging at a crusty private course in the desert, but it would be solidly in their satirical sweet spot.
I came late to “Key & Peele,” the sketch-comedy program on Comedy Central on your television set. Just when I was in, they were out — the last new episode was in 2015. They had bigger codfish to fry, and now we’re seeing what came out of the pan.
Among other things, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele teamed up last year on the movie “Keanu” — worth seeing. See, these two hip guys play unhip not-tough guys trying desperately to be gangstas to save their lives and retrieve a stolen kitten named Keanu. Just go with it.
Peele wrote and directed “Get Out,” a horror comedy thriller new in theaters now. It wouldn’t be a Peele production if wasn’t socially aware and funny, and it wouldn’t be this good a horror movie if it wasn’t a little disturbing.
Mainly these guys make my Dream Team because they’re funny, wicked funny, and they do it without dumbing anything down or being too mean. Like, they built a whole movie on rescuing a damn kitten.
Peele started making “Get Out” long before the election brought us the Dickhead-in-Chief, who, while he might be in the Oval Office, will never be in the Four. And while you don’t have to be wicked smart, like Key and Peele, to get in, you don’t get to be wicked stupid.
