Key and Peele

Postby R.B.J1 » Fri Mar 13, 2015 9:56 pm

I didnt know that Keegan Michael-Key was a UDM alumn. I think these guys have one of the funniest shows out right now. Someone needs to get him to start wearing his UDM gear. The skits these guys do on President Obama are hilarious. I also loved the Sherman/Lynch superbowl skit.

Keegan is a proud UDM grad and supporter. He appeared in a special production at the Theatre Company a couple years ago when the program celebrated its 40th anniversary. Keegan went to Shrine High School. His mom goes to the same church as I do and he comes to Sunday services with her when he is in town. Always friendly and approachable, a super nice guy.

I saw him perform years ago at Detroit Second City. He's a very funny guy. Did a great job in Fargo this past season, too.

I'm sure many/most of you are familiar with their Substitute Teacher sketch. One of their best:

Keegan at Penn State (where he went to grad school):

Keegan has been a supporter of UDM, and comes back to Detroit periodically to support Theatre Company events. That said, it would be cool to see him at Calihan Hall for hoops homecoming.

Nice article on Keegan Michael Key in today's Detroit News:

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/entert ... /87762856/

Heard that there were discussions to have the UDM alum appear at the school's upcoming Homecoming, but contractual scheduling conflicts have arisen and looks like that won't happen.

Too bad things didn't work out for homecoming, maybe he'll be able to attend a game when UDM's in the NCAA tournament in April. :D

UDM alum Keegan Michael Key named Grand Marshal of this year's Detroit Thanksgiving Day parade:

http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/acto ... day-parade

I heard he will also be doing a fund raiser at the Detroit Institute of Arts later this year, I believe the date is December 22.

The University tried to get him to visit/perform on campus during the recent Fall homecoming event, but there were schedule conflicts.

Saw a photo of KMK the other day sporting a cap with the new school logo.

Keegan was wearing a Detroit Mercy sweatshirt during the parade today. He made reference to it during a short interview shown on TV.

Former Titan great Earl Cureton was also in the parade, riding the Pepsi-sponsored float. His UDM ties were mentioned by the TV announcer.

Wayne State University sponsored the Kermit the Frog balloon. Perhaps in the future Detroit Mercy will get more directly involved. I recall a UDM float several years ago.
