BRIAN DAMAGE & KRYSSTAL

UNIQUE MALE/FEMALE DOUBLE ACT


For more years than he cares to remember BRIAN DAMAGE has entertained psychopaths and lunatics in London pubs,workingmen's clubs and sanatoriums.

Six years ago, during a bout of severe depression and on the advice of his therapist (now sadly deceased) he sought solace on the London comedy circuit...

Brian says... "The first time I went to a comedy club I saw all these depressed, agitated, stressed out, worried looking people and I thought... I wanna be a part of that!" Now he is!

To his surprise he won the JONGLEURS Competition in April '98

In 2000 he teamed up with Krysstal to perform at various U.K. venues including: THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL * GLASTONBURY * MECCANO * BEARCAT * UP THE CREEK * THE LAUGHTER LOUNGE IN DUBLIN & GALWAY * THE HACKNEY EMPIRE * BANANA CABARET * THE COMEDY CAFÉ * BOUND & GAGGED * JONGLEURS and many other comedy venues... too humorous to mention.

The duo have also toured SCOTLAND, JOHANNESBURG (South Africa), VARIOUS UNIVERSITIES around the UK and early in 2002 they toured in AUSTRALIA.

In 2002 Brian & Krysstal appeared at the Edinburgh Festival for the third year running.
Shows include ”Pear Shaped At Midnight”, “Damage & DeLacy” and Brian also compered the sell-out "Stand Up Show" at The Guilded Balloon

Following the enOrmous success of the OVAL COMEDY CLUB (1997-2000 RIP) Brian & Krysstal now run & compere their own London Club PEAR SHAPED IN FITZROVIA and have just opened PEAR SHAPED IN SYDNEY

In his act Brian talks candidly about the bizarre world of showbiz. To an almost musical background, he airs his views on his misspent youth, the futility of life, shattered relationships, the joy of divorce, advancing old age, being a cortina driver, coping with failure
and last but by all means least... positive drinking!

Krysstal plays tambourine, sings, interrupts whenever possible & tries very hard to look glamorous.

Brian Damage & Krysstal are a unique comedy act, visually visual, audibly audible and just downright FUNNY!
