Actor Keegan-Michael Key of Comedy Central’s sketch comedy series “Key & Peele” will lead the Krewe of Orpheus parade for the 2018 Mardi Gras season.

Key joins a long line of celebrities to lead this parade, which rolls Feb. 12 at 6 p.m.

He will be joined on the route by actors Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph, who star in Marvel’s “Cloak & Dagger” series premiering this year on Freeform.


The parade, founded by a group including Harry Connick Jr., will mark its 25th year with an all-star concert at its Oprheuscapade party in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Held after the parade rolls through New Orleans, the concert will feature Trombone Shorty, Irma Thomas, Big Freedia, Bonerama, Flowtribe, Deacon John, Amanda Shaw and others.
