STANDING OVATION. YEAH. WELL, NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN. HAVEN’T SEEN YOU SINCE WE SHOT A
LITTLE PIECE FOR THE SUPER BOWL SHOW TWO YEARS AGO.>>WE DID.>>Stephen: AND WHILE WE WERE
SHOOTING THAT YOU WERE TELLING ME ABOUT THIS MOVIE YOU WERE
WORKING ON.>>RIGHT.>>Stephen: AND I SAID, “WHAT
IS IT ABOUT?” AND YOU SAID, IT’S KIND OF CRAZY
TO EXPLAIN.”>>IT’S HARD TO EXPLAIN.>>Stephen: HE SAID IT’S
CALLED ‘GET OUT'” AND YOU TOLD ME WHAT THE MOVIE WAS ABOUT. AND I SAID I WILL DO SEE IT. YOU MADE YOUR DEBUT WITH “GET
OUT,” HIGHEST GROSSING DEBUT FILM BASED ON ORIGINAL
SCREENPLAY EVER. CONGRATULATIONS. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>IT’S INFLATION. IT’S INFLATION.>>Stephen: NO, NO, HIGHEST
EVER. DID YOU GETTIER BEAK WET ON THAT
ONE?>>DISOME COCAINE ON SET.>>Stephen: OH, GOOD. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I MEANT. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I MEANT.>>YOU DID NOT GET MY BEAK WET.>>Stephen: YOU DID NOT GET
YOUR BEAK WET ON THIS ONE?>>NO.>>Stephen: LET ME REP YOU
NEXT TIME.>>FAIR ENOUGH.>>Stephen: IT’S GOT 99% ON
ROTTEN TOMATOES WHICH IS NEARLY UNHEARD OF. BUT I HAVE TO ASK WHAT WHO IS
THE 1% WHO WENT, “I’M OUT.”>>RACISM IS…>>Stephen: RACISM GETS TO

THING?>>YEAH!>>Stephen: THAT’S WHY I
DIDN’T KNOW. SPOILER ALERT: NOT BLACK. I KNOW I SEEM SUPER WOKE AT
TIMES. I CAN IMAGINE YOU MISTAKING ME
FOR BLACK.>>I THOUGHT YOU WERE IN WHITE
FACE WHEN I CAME OUT HERE.>>Stephen: NO, I DON’T PLAY
LIKE THAT.>>GOOD, THAT’S NOT 2017.>>Stephen: NOW, I UNDERSTAND
YOU’VE SUBMITTED THIS TO THE GOLDEN GLOBES AS A COMEDY.>>I– I SUBMITTED IT AS A
DOCUMENTARY. ( LAUGHTER )
I DIDN’T KNOW– YOU KNOW, IT WAS– IT WAS SUBMITTED. AND I —
>>Stephen: IT WAS SUBMITTED?>>IT WAS SUBMITTED. IT WAS —
>>Stephen: DON’T USE THE PASSIVE TENSE. YOU’RE A BETTER WRITER THAN
THAT.>>IT HAD BEEN SUBMITTED. I TONIGHT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.>>Stephen: IT WILL HAVE BEEN
SUBMITTED?>>I THOUGHT– HERE’S THE THING.>>Stephen: YES. YOU HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE
MOVIE, IS WHAT I UNDERSTAND AT THIS POINT.>>THE MOVIE IS TRUTH. THE THING THAT RESONATED TO
PEOPLE IS TRUTH. SO I THINK– FOR ME, IT’S MORE
OF, LIKE, A HISTORICAL BIOPIC.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>THE ORIGINAL TITLE WAS “GET
OUT: THE KANYE WEST STORY.” BUT I HAD TO LOP OFF THE END.>>Stephen: IS THE TITLE A
REFERENCE TO THE RICHARD PRYOR JOKE?>>YEAH, A LITTLE BIT.>>Stephen: DO YOU MIND
TELLING THE PEOPLE THE JOKE.>>I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S PRYOR OR
EDDIE MURPHY I THINK THE ONE YOU ARE REFERENCEs IS THE
“AMTIVEAL HORROR.” IF THE BLACK PERSON WAS THE
PROTAGONIST OF A HORROR MOVIE IT WOULD BE A VERY SHORT MOVIE. AND AT THIS POINT I’M GOING TO
GET A PRIOR LAUGH. SO THAT’S WEIRD. BUT, YEAH, THE BIT WAS THE BLACK
FAMILY COMES INTO A HAUNTED HOUSE– I THINK IT’S EDDIE
MURPHY– “THESE GRAPES DRAIPS ARE GREAT.” “GET OUT!”
“TOO BAD WE CAN’T STAY, BABY.” IT’S NOT MY BIT. IT’S NOT MY BIT. BUT, YEAH, IT WAS LIKE WHAT
HAPPENS WHEN YOU LET A BLACK PERSON BE THE PROTAGONIST IN A
HORROR MOVIE, AND IT TURNS OUT YOU HAVE A MOVIE THAT HAS A– A
PROTAGONIST THAT IS AWARE THAT HORROR IS GOING DOWN. ( LAUGHTER )
THERE’S NO WALKING BACKWARDS INTO A DARK ROOM IN THIS MOVIE. ( APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: NOW, I MEAN, IT IS A FUNNY MOVIE, BUT IT’S ALSO A
SCARY MOVIE. DID YOU– DO YOU– DO– DO WHITE
AUDIENCES AND BLACK AUDIENCES GET FRIGHTENED BY THIS MOVIE IN
THE SAME WAY? DO THEY EXPERIENCE THE HORROR IN
THE SAME WAY?>>NO, I DON’T THINK SO. I MEAN, I THINK BLACK PEOPLE,
YOU KNOW, IT’S LIKE THE SECOND– THE MOVIE COMES UP, AND, LIKE
ARE THE PROTAGONIST IS DATING A WHITE GIRL. THEY GO, “OH, HE’S IN TROUBLE. I DON’T LIKE WHERE THIS IS
GOING! HE’S IN AN INTERRACIAL
RELATIONSHIP. GET OUT, BROTHER.”>>Stephen: UH-HUH. WHITE AUDIENCE GOES, “THAT’S
VERY PROGRESSIVE. THAT’S VERY PROGRESSIVE.”>>YEAH, THAT’S COOL. IT’S NOT UNTIL LATER IN THE
MOVIE THAT WHITE PEOPLE GET FREAKED OUT. THEY’RE LIKE, “OH, MY GOD. I THINK I’VE SAID THAT. I THINK I SAID THAT THING THAT
THE VILLAINS ARE SAYING IN THIS MOVIE.” SO IT’S A VERY DIFFERENT THING. AND IT IS, YOU KNOW, THE WHOLE–
IT DOESN’T FIT INTO A GENRE. YOU KNOW, IT SORT OF SUBVERTS
THE IDEA OF GENRE. BUT IT IS THE KIND OF MOVIE
THAT, LIKE, BLACK PEOPLE CAN LAUGH AT, BUT WHITE PEOPLE NOT
SO MUCH.>>Stephen: A LITTLE BIT. A LITTLE BIT.>>YOU LAUGHED A LITTLE BIT.>>Stephen: NOT AS MUCH AS
PROBABLE YOU DO.>>NO, NO.>>Stephen: PEOPLE ARE WRITING
PAPERS ABOUT THIS MOVIE. KIDS IN COLLEGE ARE WRITING
PAPER.>>THERE ARE COLLEGE COURSES —
>>Stephen: WHOLE COURSES?>>YES THERE IS A BLACK CORE
COURSE –>>Stephen: OKAY.>>WHAT DO YOU MEAN “OKAY?”
>>Stephen: WHEN YOU SAID, “THERE ARE WHOLE COURSES?”
AND I SAID “ON THIS MOVIE.” AND YOU SAID “BLACK HORROR
MOVIES.>>THIS IS THE ONE.>>Stephen: THERE IS NO OTHER
BLACK HORROR.>>BASICALLY NO. THERE IS PEOPLE UNDER THE
STAIRS. THERE’S CANDY MAN, NIGHT OF THE
LIVING DEAD– THERE ARE A COUPLE.>>Stephen: NIGHT OF THE
LIVING DEAD, THERE IS ONLY ONE BLACK GUY. IT’S NOT BLACK HORROR.>>HE’S THE MAN.>>Stephen: HE’S THE
REASONABLE CHARACTER IN IT.>>YEAH.>>Stephen: HE’S THE
REASONABLE CHARACTER IN IT.>>IN “NIGHT OF THE LIGDEAD,” HE
IS THE GUY WHO IS READY TO FIGHT ZOMBIES BECAUSE HE’S BEEN
FIGHTING WHITE PEOPLE OFF HIS WHOLE LIFE. ( APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: NO! NO! NO! OKAY. OKAY.>>OKAY?>>Stephen: SO, I UNDERSTAND
YOU WENT TO ONE OF THESE CLASSES.>>YES. SO I —
>>Stephen: DID THEY KNOW YOU WERE THERE?>>SO I WENT IN WITH A HOOD. LIKE, THEY WERE PLAYING THE
MOVIE– U.C.L.A., THEY WERE PLAYING A CLIP FROM THE MOVIE. AND I KIND OF SNUCK IN. I WAS IN THE HOOD. AND THEN AT SOME POINT, YOU
KNOW, THE TEACHER SAID, “WHAT DO YOU THINK THE DIRECTOR WAS
THINKING WHEN…?” AND I JUST RAISED MY HAND AND I
WAS LIKE, “I HAVE AN OPINION ON THAT MATTER.” AND THEY TURN IT WAS LIKE– IT
WAS, LIKE, THE BEST WELCOMING I EVER HAD. THEY WENT CRAZY.>>Stephen: WOW.>>I GOT EYE GOT IN FRONT OF HIM
THEM, I WAS LIKE TEACHING THE LECTURE, AND THEY STARTED SAYING
THINGS, RAISING THEIR HANDS SAYING, “LET’S TALK ABOUT THE
SYSTEM THAT ALLOWED THIS TYPE OF OPPRESSION– WAS THAT WHAT YOU
MEANT?” LIKE SOME REALLY SMART THINGS.>>Stephen: THAT’S EXCITING.>>I HAD TO BE LIKE, “YEAH… THAT’S… WHAT I MEANT WHEN I
DID THAT.”>>Stephen: WAS THIS THE MOVIE
YOU INTENDED FROM THE BEGINNING OR DID IT SORT OF LIKE CHANGE IN
THE CREATION?>>NO. IT WAS THE MOVIE. THIS IS THE MOVIE– THIS IS THE
MOVIE I WANTED TO MAKE. I WANTED TO MAKE A MOVIE THAT
WAS FOR A VERY LOYAL BLACK HORROR FAN BASE THAT WE GO TO
SEE HORROR MOVIES, AND WE– YOU KNOW, WE DON’T GET REPRESENTED. AND THIS WAS THE MOVIE I FELT
LIKE BLACK PEOPLE WERE WAITING FOR. AND I’M THRILLED THAT EVERYBODY
ENJOYS IT. BUT TO BE HONEST, IT WAS– IT
WAS– IT WAS MY FAVORITE MOVIE THAT I HAD NEVER SEEN.>>Stephen: WELL,
CONGRATULATIONS.>>THANK YOU, STEPHEN.>>Stephen: “GET OUT” IS
AVAILABLE NOW ON DVD. JORDAN PEELE, EVERYBODY!
WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK

100 thoughts on “Jordan Peele Crashed A ‘Get Out’ College Course

  1. Get Out is awesome! With all these reboots, sequels, and movies based on superhero comics I think Jordan Peele is the only original person in Hollywood right now. I'm excited for his new movie Us!

  2. This it's really sad… He sounds like a straight up racist to me. He continuously insults white people im really disappointed 😞

  3. You have a protaganist who's aware that horror is going down. No backing into a dark room

  4. I still can’t believe this is the guy I watched on MadTV all these years ago 🙃🙃🙃🙃

  5. Only saw Get Out a few weeks ago and it was as good as the hype. Can't wait for Us!

  6. When he said he will get the 100% on rotten tomatoes. He was not playing!!!! 👏🙌

  7. Wait… they can make a stinking movie like Solo but not trust this great director with Gargoyles….we need to have a petition.

  8. I loved this movie!!! We were screaming at the tv at the end…run run!!! Lol

  9. Some of the stuff he asked shouldn’t have been questions. He just said some stuff that made it weird and rude

  10. Da-Rryll, I LOOKED THIS WOMAN DEAD IN THE WINDOWS OF HER SOUL and I said………….I said ☝️…………✊✊ I said BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCH 👨🏾‍🚀

  11. If only he wasn't a hypocrite and a racist, Jordan Peele would be so cool.

  12. "it was my favourite movie that I had never seen" Wow! I think this guy just became my hero.

  13. Noice👍Ibrahim Moizeus and my rhymes are clean like my name is Dr.Seuss

  14. The way Black people are almost the same everywhere around the globe lol. I am African and whenever I hear what African-Americans do/react to certain things and it's some sort of a "Black thing" and we have the same It shocks me. Lol. We just don't do creeps. 4:50 "Get Out' "Too bad we can't stay baby!" and things like dance and music.

  15. 0:00 me when I’m having sleep paralysis. Sometimes that’s what it feels like… it’s fucking scary. Your helpless to anything that happens to you. The good news it, it always ends. But sometimes I wonder what would happen if it didn’t.

    That’s sometimes how I feel with anxiety. Like this side of me with anxiety has taken control and I can’t actually do anything. I’m powerless.

    With depression as well. This could be about race, but it feels like lots of other things to be as well. Fear, depression, discrimination.

    There are so many instances where I feel powerless.

  16. They showed the sunken place on a fucking late night talkshow? Wow, stephen, that's really low…

  17. we studied get out in our english class, so many things that wouldve completely gone over my head

  18. I want to just hear him talk about his movie for like an hour, he is one of the most interesting guests I’ve ever seen on this show

  19. 1 donut donut=blank stare from Colbert

    Peele brilliantly=It’s a black thing

    Colbert’s face=that was my first thought 🥴

    Priceless moment

    Colbert clueless

    Peele on target. Love him!!!

  20. "There's only one black guy in night of the living dead!" Oh Stephen, there is ALWAYS only one black dude in everything. Black kids gotta get creative when studying blackness in popular culture.

  21. I’m not white but the way some blacks people talk about white people right in front of them is just shameful. And they just sit there and take it. Unbelievable. And it’s sad to see a black person looking at the world in black and white. It doesn’t matter how much money you have. You’re a prisoner to your own race at the end of the day.

  22. Its Eddie Murphy's the joke, Delirious. Eddie was with a red leather, in the 80s

  23. that’s a genius way of going about advertising your movie, if you don’t like my movie then you’re rascist

  24. very weird…he seems uncomfortable around White people..I guesss!>!?!!?

  25. So it's a movie about black people laughing at white people that's not new that's not original maybe the way the movie is formatted is differentwhat if we left at something that was actually funny rather than derogatory to begin with

  26. This interview was interestingly awkward. It barely touched the surface of the racial commentary in the film, and yet you could kind of tell that both guys were a little reluctant to totally open up the conversation. Goes to show you how difficult it is to discuss race in this country, and why we so desperately need to.

  27. 0:47 someone needs to teach the guy in the upper section with blue shirt and brown jacket how to clap.

  28. Racism is real happy that we can make light of it when we can laugh about things that hurt we win🙂

  29. "It was my favorite movie that I never seen"- Perfect. Love this dude

  30. I watched the movie with my white gf and kids🤣🤣 it was the most awkward thing EVER.. no one said a word for 2 hrs😂😂

  31. I'm just waiting for Lupita to crash a college 'Us' course, as Red.

  32. I like peele but imo, he's trying way too hard to segregate black people from everybody else in this interview. Not a big fan of the whole "us and them" way of thinking

  33. Gotta watch Get Out again, but re-imagine it as the Kanye West biopic.

  34. Amazing how diferent jordan peele is when he is off duty . Mysterious serious not trying to be funny and very diferent from his charecters

  35. 99% on rotten tomatoes, that's fucking mental. are all people really that scared to admit that get out is one of the most racist films ever made?

  36. God this show has really turned me on Colbert. Here we have a guest in Jordan Peele that would have been fantastic on The Colbert Report but somehow here, I don't know whether Stephen's ego has gotten big or maybe Stephen has always just out of touch, but he made this super awkward for Jordan. Why is he making this so confrontational and making him feel uncomfortable? 3:46, 6:38 Stephen was pretty condescending and I'm glad Jordan kind of called him out on it. GET OUT of this interview.

  37. It’s honestly so sad that we live in a time where the has to be this constant focus on the race of the characters in Get Out and the different reactions compared etc. Why can’t it just be a movie? Regardless of race. I didn’t watch this movie thinking that “ohhh the lead is black, this is different!” 🤔😕 I just watched a really good movie and didn’t care that the lead was black etc. Why constantly highlight it like it’s a novelty???

  38. he seems like a really honest guy. really open about race stuff and didn't seem care if a couple things he said sounded pompous (did I say uppity, I didn't say uppity), I mean the things were true but I think some people have a filter. I would too I wouldn't be talking about personal shit in front of them all. seemed like Colbet and him had a good repartee too.

  39. is it me or is Stephen Colbert a bit of a dick?

    "use the proper tenses, youre a better writer than that?"

  40. I’m white and I despise the history of my race and I loved the social commentary about racism, but I didn’t think it was scary at all. It seems like you can’t speak out negatively about this film cause as he said, that would be racist. I just wasn’t scared at any point. I didn’t buy into how easy she could hypnotize him by saying “sink”. I didn’t buy into the process of the surgery… and it all reminded me of Stepford Wives. That said, he’s a genius actor and should act in a horror film himself.

  41. I don't see why ppl think the interview is awkward, it's hilarious 😂

  42. Kinda sad I watched this interview. He was my favorite until I saw how racist he is toward white people.

  43. I like Key and Peele sketches… I thought the movie was average, but I'm white so it wasn't really aimed at my demo… I haven't liked Colbert since he left the Colbert Report… This was a very strange encounter… Peele came out and immediately seemed either nervous or a bit arrogant, Colbert seemed either uptight or nervous also… Very weird chemistry… I think there must be some industry beef there.

  44. Colbert is the kind of guy that would get raped by a black and not press charges.

  45. I'm probably the only one here, but Peele comes off a bit weird, or even racist here. I'm aware that he didn't clap when Green Book won best picture this year and I know he said in an interview he doesn't see himself casting a white leading man in his movie, because "he's seen that". Which are both odd things if you ask me, especially in 2019. Here, he doesn't seem to be able to poke even a little fun at his work or at his own expense. Even black comedians regularly commenting on race, racism, etc. like Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Richard Pryor seem to be able to laugh at themselves a little bit and not take themselves too seriously.

    Peele on the other hand drops little jabs at white people in almost everything he says in this interview. Get Out is a "documentary", the movie is "truth and truth resonated with people and it's more like a historical biopic", having a black person as protagonist means the movie has a protagonist "who is aware a horror is going down" and especially when describing the white audience's reaction to the movie when they get scared/offended because "they said in real life something the villains are saying in this film". And of course the black guy in Night of the living Dead is ready to fight zombies, because "he's been fighting off white people all his life" (which is, no matter what anyone says, a VERY weird way to look at that character in the context of that film). And then when Colbert says just "oh, OK" to Peele saying there's a black horror movies course at UCLA, Peele immediately jumps on it, saying "what do you mean, OK?" As if there was anything Colbert possibly could've meant with his remark. It all can be passed off as jokes, but there's some true and very strong underlying feelings there IMO.

    Get Out was a great movie, Us has an interesting message too and he seems like a very smart and capable guy, but to me it seems like Peele takes this whole racial thing/theme and himself way too seriously. He comes off like he does have some prejudice against white people in general. I really like his work and I hope I'm wrong, but he gave off a weird vibe here.

  46. "Get Out: The Kanye West Story" hahahahaha Run Kanye, them Kardasians are hooking you up to machines at night!!!

  47. I saw Get Out with a friend and it was not that scary. It was a great movie. Congrats to Jordan Peele. The film was great!

  48. this pompous dude making everything about racism now.. the movie was good beyond good. dont shit on it now

  49. i hope you all know that the truth he was talking about in the movie is happening to him listen to how they get at each other with these phycological jokes

  50. Love the referencing of night of the living dead. I still remember seeing it the first time sometime in the 90s and recognizing how ahead of its time it was given that the black dude was the true hero of the group. When he knocked out one of the white guys in the group for freaking out too much I was super shocked. Not expecting that from a film that old at all.

  51. GEEEETTTT OOOOUUUTT! That's an Eddie Murphy bit he's talking about, not Richard Pryor. I think it's on Delirious. He's probably mixing the two up because of the old Exorcist sketch Pryor did on SNL.

  52. The movie was stupid. It didn't really say anything about it's subject that made any sense.
    If you want a good modern horror flick, watch Hereditary.

  53. One doughnut doughnut is the whitest thing I have ever heard. The sarcasm is unreal lmfao 😂

  54. I can’t stand the white vs black talk. We are all connected in humanity, we are all interconnected. Greatest illusion ever is believing we are separate
