Grumpy BRIAN DAMAGE met KRYSSTAL his glamorous assistant, at THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL in 2000. They teamed up immediately to record their own excellent CD Silly Songs and form a unique act which they have performed in places as diverse as JOHANNESBURG (South Africa), AUSTRALIA, SCOTLAND, IRELAND, SPAIN, GOZO, DENMARK and all over the UK.
Brian and Krysstal have appeared five years running at THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL and also performed at international festivals such as GLASTONBURY, LONDON COMEDY FESTIVAL, ADELAIDE & MELBOURNE COMEDY FESTIVALS & WOODFORD FOLK FESTIVAL 2005
Wherever they go their baggage goes with them, including several musical instruments (not always musical in their hands!) and many years of experience in the entertainment industry. Much of this baggage spills forth during their unconventional vaudeville style act, punctuated by occasional silly songs, the odd bit of Spanish dancing and loads of belly laughs.
Brian and Krysstal also run and compere Pear Shaped Comedy Club every Wednesday in Central London.
Apart from regular live appearances Brian and Krysstal are not averse to TV, radio or any other media performances. They write scripts and songs and have hosted corporate functions, private parties and are suitable for many types of comedy-based events!
If you want something different and funny that stands out from the crowd
Brian and Krysstal
" Legendary Brian Damage and top strangely straight-woman Krysstal
are a one-off cross-genre act but they have echoes of The Bonzos, the heyday of music hall and some rather seedy country and western club.
Four stars I laughed like a drain"
Chortle - Edinburgh Festival
