Advancing to the next slide in Keynote Apps
As explained in the "Controlling a Presentation with the Keyboard" section of the Keynote 08 user guide document (3.1MB download), you can press the ? or / key (no need to use Shift) to display a list of keyboard controls while giving a Keynote presentation.

This list indicates that you can use the ] key to advance to the next slide. But I have found that this doesn't work if the slide has internal object transitions with set timings -- you have to wait until all the timed transitions have finished before the ] key will advance to the next slide.

However, I noticed that the slide will advance immediately if you hold down the Option key and then press the ] key. (I.e. use Option-] instead of just ]). This appears to be undocumented.

Yay. Another good use for the option key. Its applications are neverending.
