Sydney Comedy Club present & Riverside Theatres present:
COMEDY AT RIVERSIDE
Every month three comedians walk into Raffertys Theatre for a whole lot of funny business!
Get a dose of the funnies with Sydney Comedy Club’s top-rating (and rather hilarious) comedians from home and abroad!
The February line-up is:
BRIAN DAMAGE AND KRYSSTAL (UK)
Please note the comedy acts may contain explicit language.
Since meeting at The Edinburgh Festival in 2000 Brian Damage and 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.
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.
