The Moral of the Story
Date: June 2013
Duration: 0 hours 52 minutes
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.
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.
Although she now calls L.A. home, Ms. 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 ensures that 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.
