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 difficult, she added standup comedy to her vices. Fast forward to the present where now, a must see standup on the comedy circuit, KEY'S unique blend of comedy and music has earned her both popular and critical acclaim.  In fact, her most recent CD , “SONGS IN THE KEY OF KRISTIN”, spent many weeks this summer and fall on the Billboard Comedy Top 10 Charts.
 
It’s been an exciting path for MS.KEY.  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. 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 held their auditions in Austin, Texas, like every other Texas comic, she stood in line hoping for a chance to be seen. After 7 hours of waiting, she got her chance and her ticket to Hollywood to compete with the best in the comedy world. Years as a road comic paid off; she advanced to the final six and her fan base exploded.
 
With validation from millions of comedy fans on NBC's Last Comic Standing, she moved to Los Angeles and has continued to utilize opportunities in radio, television, writing, and live performance. KRISTIN has written for Life & Style Magazine’s Style Slip-up section, the CBS Diversity Showcase, and was a Semi- Finalist in TV Writer.com’s Spec Script Writing Contest.
 
KRISTIN has recorded four full-length comedy CDs "Where The Cab Takes You", "Buckle Up", and “The Moral of the Story” ,nationally distributed through Uproar Records. 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 is played on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio. 
 
Though irreverent and outside the box…KEY has made her home state of Texas proud, and is killing it with audiences all over the world on television and radio and in clubs, at colleges on cruise ships and corporate events.  No matter the setting, she’ll keep you laughing all the way.
