Comedian and Detroit-native Keegan-Michael Key says he's going to invest more in his hometown.
According to an article in The Detroit News
, "[Key] makes several trips a year to Detroit and is planning on spending even more time in the city." Part of that plan entails purchasing property here.
Key, most well-known for the groundbreaking comedy show, "Key and Peele" which he wrote with co-star Jordan Peele, has already engaged quite a bit with Detroit: he was one of the co-founders of Hamtramck's Planet Ant Theater
and a member of Second City Detroit's mainstage cast (see Model D's article
on the local improv scene). He recently filmed for a role in the upcoming Detroit-based comedy television series, "Detroiters."

Key before his show at the Detroit Film Theater supporting the Detroit Creativity Project last year.
And there's more. "He also wants to tell Detroit stories; he says he's in the early stages of putting together a project that dramatizes Detroit's bankruptcy," writes Adam Graham.
