Key & Peele Talk Obama's Anger Translator And Meeting The President (VIDEO)

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been stars in the improv and sketch communities for a while now, but America finally caught up when they were given their own Comedy Central show, "Key & Peele." No small part of that success was due to their parody of Barack Obama: Having an "anger translator" named Luther behind a very calm Obama to say what the President's not able to say out loud. The sketch set Internet viewing records for Comedy Central before the show even debuted.

The duo stopped by our offices recently, and HuffPost Comedy editor Katla McGlynn had a chance to sit down and talk to them about why Luther has become the definitive Obama parody, and what Obama himself had to say about it when they met him.

"Key & Peele" airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central, after "South Park."

Video produced by Ross Luippold.
