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” recorded in 2001 is now available on iTunes. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 will see the launch of their new album.
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.
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 a wide variety of comedy-based events.
