Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele Height

"Sometimes blessings come in strange packages."

~ Jordan Peele

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key are successful actors who have appeared in many movies and TV shows but the duo together is best known for starring in Comedy Central's sketch series Key & Peele.

Anyone who has watched even a single episode of Key & Peele must know that Jordan Peele is the shorter one and Keegan-Michael Key is the taller one. Here are their heights in a nutshell:


In a Wired Autocomplete video, Mr. Key mentioned his height as:

"I am 6 feet and 3/4 of an inch, I try to be an honest person we usually just go 6 1 like football players and they lie about their height they 3/4 of an inch but what I'm doing Alexander Technique I'm 6'1¼".

But seeing him next to people like John Cena (6'½"), Barack Obama (6'1"), and Conan O'Brien (6'4"), Liam Neeson (6'4" in his rime), we think Key can look a bit shorter than his claim.

The height of Keegan-Michael Key is

6'½" or 184 cm


After figuring out Key's height it was only a matter of time before we pinpointed Peele's height to an exact number. Peele surely looks short and rotund (especially compared to Key) -- but how tall is he exactly?

Well, from what we have seen of him, Peele appears to be somewhere between 5-feet-7 inches to 5-feet-8 inches. That's our guess for his height.

The height of Jordan Peele is

5'7½" or 171.5 cm

"Ricky Gervais changed our lives. And Mitch Hedberg, who we're like, "Oh, that's funny to me on a level I don't think I understand. But I'm clearly pleased by it beyond something that my brain's figured out." He was amazing."
