Brian Damage & Krysstal Go "Pear Shaped In Sydney"
EVERY MONDAY

STAND UP COMEDY - brought to you by Brian Damage & Krysstal (UK Comedians) who will
proudly present the best and worst of the Australia's comics, cranks and crackpots.

Pear Shaped in Sydney follows in the footsteps of its sister clubs in London and
Edinburgh, a favourite of comedians and audience alike. There is no telling who will drop
in to perform for the sheer pleasure of it, to plug their show, try out new material or
just have a laugh.

Grumpy old bastard Brian & his glamorous assistant Krysstal, ran a weekly club in London
called Pear Shaped in Fitzrovia, self-proclaimed as London's Second Worst Comedy Club.
The club has the well-deserved reputation of discovering and nurturing new talent.
Comedians new and old have performed at Pear Shaped over the years including special shows
at the Edinburgh Festival and at its predecessor, the Oval Comedy Club. Well-known UK and
Aussie comedians who have graced Pear Shaped stages include:

*Daniel Kitson * Malcolm Hardee * Al Murray * Boothby Graffoe *
* Dan Antapolski * Mark Maier * Nick Wilty * Phil Nichol * Sarah Kendall * Marty Lappan *
Peter Willey * Rhyss Darby * Damien Clarke * Award winners * Paul Foot * Shazia Mirza *
Hal Cruttendan *
and many others too humorous to mention!

In Sydney, Brian and Krysstal with local comic Peter Willey, will present each Monday
numerous performers from the comedy circuit, including visiting comedians from interstate
and overseas. The comedians have fun, the audience has fun and beware, you may find
yourself doing a spot as well. Anything is possible at Pear Shaped!

"...a line-up of acts ranging from the highly professional to
the unashamedly amateurish. It is wild. Madly wonderful."
The Stage (Aug 2002)

Every Monday from 7 July 2003, Upstairs Lounge Bar,
East Village Hotel, Cnr Liverpool & Palmer Streets, East Sydney
TICKETS: $5 only. Food and bar drinks available
Tel. 0414 818 577 www.pearshapedcomedy.com

BRIAN DAMAGE & KRYSSTAL
THE COMEDY CIRCUIT'S FUNNIEST MALE/FEMALE DOUBLE ACT

In 2000 Brian met Krysstal at the Edinburgh Festival. Brian was doing 'The Stand Up Show'

Krysstal (aka Vicky de Lacy) was doing a one woman show 'Journey to Ithaca'
at the same venue. From that moment they were destined to be together!

They formed a unique comedy duo and worked all around the UK, Ireland and South Africa.
Prior to 2000 Brian had been working as a Grumpy Comedian/Musician in London
for many years, he won the JONGLEURS Competition in 1998 and never looked back.
Krysstal (Vicky) an ex-pat Pommy, had been working for almost as many years
in Sydney as a performer/producer

Last year they come to Australia for a brief visit and tour, playing at the Comedy Store
and other venues in Sydney and appearing at the Adelaide Festival.
NOW THEY ARE BACK!

Having settled in Greenwich, they are opening their own club with Lane Cove resident
Peter Willey. Peter worked with Brian and Krysstal at the Edinburgh Festival 2002.
All three have teamed up to run Pear Shaped in Sydney.

Some of the venues Brian Damage & Krysstal have appeared at include:
THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL * GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL * MECCANO * BEARCAT *
* UP THE CREEK * THE LAUGHTER LOUNGE IN DUBLIN & GALWAY *
* THE HACKNEY EMPIRE * BANANA CABARET * THE COMEDY CAF *
VARIOUS UNIVERSITIES * BOUND & GAGGED * JONGLEURS
* COMEDY STORE (Fox Studios) * DOCKSIDE (Brisb) * COMEDY LOUNGE (Melb) *

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.
Peter sings songs and tells humorous stories to add the Aussie element to the night.
Brian Damage & Krysstal are a unique comedy act, visually visual, audibly audible
and just down right FUNNY!
