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.
Their sometimes bawdy humour is punctuated by silly songs, dancing and plenty of jokes.
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.
'Wonderful silliness, some cute songs, some political incorrectness, some sick vomit and poo jokes and a lot of originality. It is all done with that intangible panache, subtlety and ability to laugh at one's self that is quintessential to British humour' (Peter Bleby, Australian Stage).
Brian Damage & Krysstal tour dates
Endearing and enduring 82 year old Barry from Watford was first brought to public consciousness when he became a cult star on Iain Lee's LBC 97.3FM phone-in show, phoning in a few times each week to offer the benefits of his octogenarian wisdom. Since June 2009, he has been a regular feature in the form of “lifestyle guru” on Steve Wright In The Afternoon, BBC Radio 2.

He has appeared regularly at top venues throughout the UK and has also made a number of TV and radio appearances.

'Almost lad-comedy in reverse... an enjoyable and relatable hour of
comedy' (The Skinny).

One of the new crop of emerging acts, Ian Smith employs a careful, unhurried delivery that conceals a nicely pointed attitude with a sack full of neat gags to match.
'Fantastically funny' (The Times)
'Star of the future' (Time Out).
'... delightfully offbeat writing, a mastery of phrasing and summons up some fine comic images. A talent, for sure' (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
Winner of the 'People's Champion Award' at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 with his show 'Snowflake'.
Ian Smith tour dates
Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer, whose friendly and open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most sought after acts in UK comedy today.
His sharp, warm and sassy take on life tunes into our day-to-day lives with his razor sharp wit and intelligence as he tackles the art of conversation. With so much social media have we forgotten how to just sit and engage with each other on a human level? Are we still able to express ourselves in more than 140 characters?
As well as his live stand up, Stephen is also high in demand for his TV and radio work with regular appearances on ITV's Weekend with Aled Jones and Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side. He has also appeared on ITV2's Safeword and CelebAbility, ITVBe's Kate's Wardrobe Secrets, W's Celebrity Advice Bureau & Channel 5’s It's Not Me, It's You.
‘He has charisma, he has his own style, he has a wicked line in material and the ability to go off-piste with crowd work that is achingly funny’ (One 4 Review).
'Refreshing to watch, a comic who is so beautifully comfortable in his self that the show he has created is rich with positivity' (The New Current, 2014).
"When it comes to being funny, he's just got it." (ScotsGay)
"Bailey is an absolute crowdpleaser, getting the room howling with laughter.” (Chortle)
