Kristin Key w/ Belinda Carroll in Corvallis!
Saturday Dec. 14th at 8PM
This is going to be fancy as F&*k! We are gaying it up and getting down! Making this a night of Comedy, Music, and Burlesque with headliner Kristin Key!
The Whiteside is a stunningly beautiful historic theatre in Corvallis, a mere 45 minutes from almost anywhere. It will be worth the drive for this show!
Kristen Key is our new favorite and we are so excited to bring her, with Portland Queer Comedy Festival co-founder Belinda Carroll to Corvallis, for ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Kristen was recently featured on Bring The Funny on NBC, 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.At 19, while in college to become a paramedic, she decided to try stand-up at the local comedy club.
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’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 Pandora Radio. And she still blazes around the world performing live in comedy clubs, colleges and military shows, leaving audiences in stitches wherever she goes.
