"Obama was the best thing for black nerds everywhere," Peele said at a press conference.
"Now it's OK for black people to walk down the street and say, '"Star Trek," yes!'" Key said.
"Before Obama we had Urkel and there was Lamar from 'Revenge of the Nerds,'" Peele said.
In discussing their backgrounds, Key said "it's the usual way it is": The both guys have a black dad and a white mom.
"The reason I do all of this is so I can buy [my mom] a house," Peele says, "at least that’s what she tells me."
Key is married, Peele is not.
"I don't believe in marriage and the reason is it's like a tattoo," he said. "It's like a tattoo that's alive and makes you wait to watch the next episode of everything, which I have no interest in."
