This research report takes an in depth look at the ways in which Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele, two biracial sketch comedians, are changing the way that we look at comedy, and the way that we look at ourselves. By investigating what biracial identities are able to accomplish, and by looking at the effect of the political correctness generation we live in, this research report investigates what is funny, and where is the line.
