Twenty-five-year old Kristin Key seems like any other sweet, sexy, well-behaved preacher's daughter…until she opens her mouth. Her fearless style of comedy has earned her the title "Preacher's Kid Gone Wild," and after starting her stand-up career at age 19, she quickly became one of the youngest female headliners in the country.
Key was born in Aurora, Missouri, raised in Liberal, Kansas and lived in Amarillo, Texas until moving recently to San Marcos, Texas. She had always wanted to try comedy, but didn't know anything about it, adding "I didn't see my first live comedy show until I did my first open mic."
She was in college studying to be a paramedic in 2000 when the Amarillo Comedy Club opened and her life took a fateful turn. Key did her first open mic night there and was hooked. She quit college that same week to take a full-time job at the club and pursue her career as a comedian.
Key says, "I love making people laugh at things they usually wouldn't think about," and describes her style of comedy as silly, edgy and very personal. "I make fun of myself a lot and I tell a lot of stories."
Since then, Key has performed all over the country in clubs like The Improv, The Funnyfarm, Laff's Comedy Club, Jokers and the Capital City Comedy Club in Austin, where she auditioned for "Last Comic Standing."
