'Key & Peele'

BOMB at Comedy Festival

... Crowd Erupts in BOOS

Every comic bombs ... it's a right of passage ... and this weekend, the guys behind the hit Comedy Central show "Key & Peele" earned their suck stripes at a comedy show in NorCal.

The duo was performing at the Wild 94.9 Comedy Jam near San Francisco when the crowd turned on the comics during a bit about athletes with weird names ... and smothered Key & Peele in a chorus of boos.

After it was clear there was no winning back the crowd, one of the comics told the audience ... "thank you ... you guys are amazing ... couple of classy ones out there."

Kinda shocking ... 'cause we're told the comedy team usually KILLS IT on stage ... and recently impressed at a prestigious comedy festival in Montreal.

We called Key & Peele's rep for comment -- but the rep's assistant wouldn't put us through ... and told us they had no comment.

Boo.

When I watch the show I just stare blank at the TV wondering why this is supposed to be funny...It is comedy for real edgy 3rd graders...adults and anyone with a love for comedy need not apply.

All comics can bomb or kill on any given night.
The trick is not to take the audience down & out with you for all the following comics due to perform after you!

Overrated hacks. These days most 'comics' just hate on one political party or another.

Hey Floridagirl.
I wouldn't be talking too much if I were you. Your country made Dane Cook a household name because you think he is such a comic genius!

Their show sucks I don't find it funny at all. Chappelle's Show is the best show ever on Comedy Central and they haven't been close to a show that funny since then.
