- Polished rapid-fire delivery keeps audiences howling
Kristin Key grew up a minister’s daughter in a small town in West Texas.
Much like Footloose, she was raised in a no-drinking, no-dancing, no instrumental music environment, so she immediately took up drinking, dancing and playing an instrument.
She seemed like any other well-behaved girl… until she opened her quick witted mouth displaying her undeniable sense of humor, so just to be a little more difficult, she added standup comedy to her vices.
At 19, while in college to become a paramedic, she decided to try stand-up at the local comedy club.
As soon as she took the stage, it was obvious she had found what she had been looking for.
Audiences couldn’t help but love the rapid-fire style of comedy coming from the “Preacher’s Kid”, and though female comics struggled to find work she was booked not for being a woman, but for simply being funny.
With validation from millions of comedy fans on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and has continued to utilize opportunities in radio, television, writing, and live performance.
Kristin’s writing was regularly featured in Life & Style Magazine’s Style Slip-up section.
Key has appeared on many television shows including Comics Unleashed and multiple episodes of VH- 1’s 100 Greatest Series, is frequent guest on the nationally broadcast Bob and Tom Show and played on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio.
And she still blazes around the world performing live in comedy clubs, colleges and military shows, leaving audiences in stitches wherever she goes.
Key still has that small town point of view coupled with a polished rapid-fire delivery that keeps audiences howling.
Musically inclined and, perhaps as a last act of rebellion against her strict upbringing, she incorporates the guitar and her funny, edgy, insightful songs into her comedy.
The blend of music, comedy, and her spontaneous sense of humor insures that anything can happen and no two shows are the same.
One thing that you can expect is that fast-paced quick witted comedy that has kept audiences rolling in the aisles.
Kristin performed for all branches of the military in Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Djbouti, Japan, and in the U.S.A.
