Inspired by Robert De Niro’s character in Taxi Driver, Comedy Central’s Keegan-Michael Key recalls ordering a slice of apple pie with melted yellow cheese at Denny’s throughout high school. Though admittedly not a fan of the combination, Keegan-Michael revealed to Good Food the true reason for his unusual standing order.
