Quiz Trippers - Early life - Netflix

Key was born in Detroit, Michigan on March 22, 1971. He was adopted as a child by Patricia Walsh and Michael Key, both social workers. His biological and adoptive fathers are both African-American, and his biological and adoptive mothers are both Caucasian; he has met his biological mother, Carrie Herr. He later also discovered that he had two half-brothers who were both already deceased, one of them comic book writer Dwayne McDuffie. Being biracial has been a source of comedic material for Key, who told Terry Gross in an interview for NPR, “I think the reason Jordan and I became actors is because we did a fair amount of code-switching growing up and still do.” Key attended the University of Detroit Mercy as an undergraduate, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theater in 1993, followed by a Master of Fine Arts in Theater at Pennsylvania State University in 1996. While at the University of Detroit Mercy, he was a brother of Phi Kappa Theta.
