Once again, President Barack Obama proved his stand-up comedy chops at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, cracking jokes about everyone from Joe Biden to Dick Cheney. But it was a special appearance by Key and Peele star Keegan-Michael Key that ended up being one of the funniest bits of the night.

Long time Key and Peele fans know that Key plays “Luther, the anger translator” to Jordan Peele’s calm and mild-mannered Obama. At the correspondents’ dinner, “Luther” translated the real Obama’s comments on everything from climate change (“You’ve got mosquitos, sweaty people on the train, stinking it up”) to Hillary Clinton (“Khaleesi is coming to Westeros”).

The new season of Key and Peele premieres July 8.
