Brian and Krysstal

(Please note Gareth Richards as ‘flu! He’ll be back next month)











Since meeting at The Edinburgh Festival in 2000 Brian & Krysstal have entertained and delighted all kinds of audiences at comedy clubs, cabaret nights, festivals, corporate and private functions in locations far and wide.

Regular fixtures at The Edinburgh Festival for eight years, the duo have worked all over the UK as well as Germany, South Africa, Gozo, Spain, Denmark, Ireland, Australia and of course… Peckham.

Brian is infamously grumpy and deadpan, while his assistant Krysstal is glamorous but ditzy. The combination is unique and very funny. Their timing is exquisite, their humour dry and sometimes bawdy.

 

Brian & Krysstal's first CD “Silly Songs” was recorded in 2001 and their long awaited second album “Spudcast” is now also available online.

Wherever they go their baggage goes with them, including several instruments (not always musical in their hands). Individually they have many years of experience in the entertainment industry, Brian as a musician and Krysstal as an actress in Australia.

Their unconventional vaudeville-style act is punctuated by silly songs, the odd bit of Spanish dancing LOADS of jokes and LOADS of belly laughs. They also run and compere their own club in central London. PEAR SHAPED COMEDY CLUB offers new (and old) comedians the chance to perform in a warm friendly non-threatening environment.


QUINCY

















Award-winning Comedian Quincy, also known as the Cockney Prince is a far cry from the well-known Medical Examiner from that 70's TV Show and is no stranger to the microphone either, as a stand-up comic or radio talk show host.  

 

Apart from being a regular on the British stand up circuit since 2005, Quincy has performed all over the world including New York, Singapore, Dubai, India and in Europe. He has supported the likes of an early Kevin Heart, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle & other top comics from the USA.


Not satisfied with just being a club comic, in 2010 Quincy decided to take his career to another level by setting up Quincy's Comedy Lounge. 



This also enabled him to share his love of comedy, by showcasing up and coming comedians from the mainstream and the black comedy scene.



From a small audience in a Wine Bar in East London to sold-out Theatre shows across the Central London, Quincy has made his Comedy Lounge stand out as one the top events to attend on the Comedy scene.

 



Quincy took his talent to radio, with a successful breakfast show on Supreme FM - where he combined the art of stand up and addressing topical issues, in order to continue to build his brand.



The regular radio shows came to an end in 2014, but he still makes guest appearances on the station from time to time.

Press for Buffering (Edinburgh 2013)
