1. 1. Luther The Anger Translator
Let’s start with the obvious. Nobody does a better Obama than Jordan Peele. No One.
2. 2. The Valets
And these two Valets speak nothing but the truth. And are very good at calisthenics.

Unlike most sketch shows this one looks fantastic! Cinema level quality thanks to director Peter Atencio.

Nobody on TV is doing anything nearly as smart as these guys

And are all about Educating Men on the right way to do it!
9. 8. They Know SNL Is Wrong About Black Women
It’s always good to knock Lorne Michaels down a peg
“PEELE: I think everyone sees what’s going on, which is [SNL executive producer] Lorne Michaels has a history of relating to white men, and it is a field where there are a disproportionate amount of whacky white guys. But the truth of the matter is, we have so many friends who are African-American women who are straight-up ready that it doesn’t really hold water to us.
KEY: That would be our opinion. But we run in different circles than Lorne Michaels does, if you can believe that.”
