Key & Peele: Neil deGrasse Tyson spoof proves he can use his brain to get out of anything

Posted on

Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of America’s preeminent science minds, but is he exempt from even the most menial household chores? Key & Peele say yes.

Wednesday’s episode featured a sketch in which Tyson (played by Peele) is getting chewed out by his wife (an irate Key) for not taking the dog out. Without even a quiver or worry about pup Sputnik’s mess, the Cosmos host goes full Cosmos and relays on a tangent that details how canine kerfuffle occurred. Color us convinced.

Watch the sketch below. Key & Peele ends its five-season run next Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central. If we’re lucky, maybe they’ll be the ones to host next year’s Oscars.
