Local Comedian Doug Key continues to find new ways to keep us entertained, amused and (kind of) proud to call him one of Newport’s own.

Key is the founder and host of The Wasted Talent Show, a stand-up comedy show that takes place on the last Friday of every month at Hope Underground on Broadway, and also recently announced he would be hosting a comedy festival in Newport over Columbus Day Weekend.

While he keeps his clothes on at Hope Underground, he will bare all when he appears on  VH1’s Dating Naked: Playing For Keeps on Wednesday, August 19th at 9pm.

Editor’s Note: There will be a viewing party with Doug Key in attendance, on Wednesday night at 9pm at Caleb & Broad.

Dating Naked: Playing For Keeps is a 10-episode, one-hour series on VH1 that explores the art of romance, free of preconceived notions, stereotypes – and clothes. The show is set on a romantic tropical island where two primary daters, Kerri and Chris, search for love.

Each week, 2 new men and 2 new women will strip down for a shot at igniting a spark with the primary daters. At the end of each episode, Kerri and Chris will each pick the one person they connected with the most to be their “keeper”, and ask them to remain on the island. As sexy new singles arrive every week, vying for the coveted “keeper” spots, initial connections will be put to the test and deeper feelings may begin to develop.

Head to the 26 second mark (don’t worry it’s all censored) to get a glimpse of what we have to look forward to on Wednesday, August 19th at 9pm.
