I am really struggling to pull a good key here. There are two aggravating factors: 1. The green screen is poorly and unevenly lit. 2. The baby blue shirt on the man has greens in it that want to key out. See here:

The bigger issue seems to be the color of the shirt. By adjusting the Screen Matte Clip Black and Clip White, I can get close, but not quite where I need it to be. See here:

I'm looking for any tips I can get to get this refined. Thanks.

im sure you could get a good key if you keyed each person separately.
I think you're trying for the magic slider position which sometimes doesn't exist for every single pixel in a comp. just garbage matte them individually and do two layers. also there's matte choker and I tried it with my procedural keyer and got the lady keyed well.
