Key & Peele McCringleberry sketch: Stephen Colbert reveals cut-for-time jokes from Super Bowl special
One of the highlights of Stephen Colbert’s post-Super Bowl live show was his collaboration with Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele on a new edition of their “Hingle McCringleberry” sketch, in which a fictional football player (Key) is repeatedly penalized for excessive celebrations by a grumpy referee (Peele). Colbert joined McCringleberry as fellow Portland Tigers player Kimble Mathias. Luckily, Colbert had some more McCringleberry footage left over for his Monday show.
Highlights of this go-round include Mathias and McCringleberry celebrating a touchdown by doing a “Superman” before grabbing maracas and dancing together.
