BRIAN DAMAGE & KRYSSTAL, his glamorous assistant, met 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 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 and Melbourne Comedy.
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.
ROBERT WHITE: Since he first came onto the stand-up scene, as a finalist in the prestigious Hackney Empire competition, he has gone from strength to strength, and in 2010 won the Malcolm Hardee main award at the Edinburgh Festival. He now is a sought after act who regularly performs in big clubs, little clubs and those in-between around the UK and sometimes abroad. He is a versatile performer who does both musical comedy or straight stand-up and can MC, as well as having written for other comedians and for TV panel shows.
