The duo can walk calmly among the undead. Plus: There's an annoying guy in a Michael Jackson Halloween costume.

(The Root) — What do you think about when you think about Halloween? Zombies? Costume parties? That’s normal. But what if those zombies were more than twisted and those costumes were a little out of date? Welcome to Key & Peele’s Halloween.

Key & Peele (Wednesdays, 10:30 p.m. EST; Comedy Central)

“These are some racist motherf—ing zombies!” –Key

“They seriously wouldn’t let her eat us!” –Key

Highlight: Key and Peele are stuck in a town that’s been overrun with zombies. They’re running through the streets, scared witless, until they realize that these zombies are not going to attack them because the zombies are racist. So this skit ends like all good zombie movies should: with a backyard barbecue. 



“Whoo-hoo!” –Michael Jackson
