Key and Peele Do “Othello”

Aw, helleth yes.

As the incomparable comedy duo Key and Peele say: Othello is my shite! I have a long-standing relationship with this play, including some contentious readings in high school and a grad school paper with a pet theory of mine about Shakespeare and sound that I’ll eventually post here.

In the meantime, though, I thoroughly enjoy this pitch-perfect sketch about two bruthas trying to enjoy Othello in Elizabethan England. Spoiler alert: they don’t like the ending the very much.

P.S. I might use the phrase “we doth not purchase it, slick Willy” on the daily.
