Jordan Peele’s standout horror-comedy is both a social parable and an homage to both genres.
Jordan Peele’s face has become such a comedic mainstay that audiences anticipate hilarity and laugh at the mere sight of him. But now that his directorial debut, Get Out, is about to be released, fans may have to look twice—Peele has the intensity of a veteran director.
Best known for Key and Peele, Comedy Central’s wildly popular sketch series, Jordan Peele wrote and performed with longtime collaborator Keegan-Michael Key for five stellar seasons. (The pair were together on Fox’s MadTV for several seasons before that.) Peele took his first dive into long-form storytelling with the feature comedy Keanu, released this past year, which he co-wrote. Now, with the debut of Get Out, he takes the stand as director for the first time.‘Get Out’: Jordan Peele Reveals How to Get from Sketch Comedy to Knockout First Feature
