Kristin Key started her comedy career at the tender age of 19 in the small west Texas town of Amarillo. As soon as her feet hit the stage, she took off running and never looked back. Small shows in the Texas panhandle turned into 35 states worth of comedy over the next 5 years as she climbed the comedy ladder one rung at a time. 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.
When Last Comic Standing season 4 held their auditions in Austin Texas (like every other Texas comic) she stood in line hoping for a chance to be seen and to advance. After 7 hours of waiting, she got her chance. She got her ticket to Hollywood and the chance to compete against the best of the best in the comedy word. Her years as a road comic paid off, and as the episodes aired, her fan base exploded.
After being seen by millions of comedy fans on NBC's Last Comic Standing, she has continued to utilize opportunities in radio, television, writing, and live performance. Kristin’s writing is regularly featured in Life & Style Magazine’s Style Slip-up section.
She has two full-length comedy CDs "Where The Cab Takes You" and "Buckle Up" which have been nationally distributed through Uproar Records. After Last Comic Standing she continued to appear on television shows such as Comics Unleashed and Comedy Time TV. Kristin is a favorite on the nationally broadcast Bob and Tom show and is often played on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio for her own specials as well as radio shows including National Lampoon Comedy and The Comedy Channel. Of course, she still blazes across the country performing live in comedy clubs and universities leaving audiences in stitches wherever she goes.
Now a California resident, she still has that small town point of view with a polished rapid-fire delivery that keeps audiences howling. She grew up musically inclined and incorporated the guitar into her comedy. With the blend of music, comedy, and her spontaneous sense of humor anything can happen and no two shows are the same. Much has changed from the dusty west Texas town of Amarillo to the bright lights of L.A. but the one thing that hasn't changed is that fast-paced quick witted comedy that has kept audiences rolling in the aisles from the beginning and keeps getting better.
