We like to think of Q.E.D. as an after-school space for grown-ups. All the fun stuff you did as a kid but with beer & wine and like-minded folks.
Our affordable classes and shows are as diverse as Queens itself. At Q.E.D. you’ll find arts and crafts, stand-up comedy, tastings, DIY projects, poetry slams, game nights, walking tours, storytelling, gardening, improv, and everything in between.
In a nutshell, we aim to provide a fun, creative, casual space to laugh and learn by opening our stage to performers of various levels of experience and hosting classes and workshops that are affordable and accessible to all types of folks.
What does Q.E.D. mean?
Q.E.D. is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase "quod erat demonstrandum". If you ever do a crossword puzzle, you'll thank us for this bit of info. It translates to "that which was demonstrated", but if you want it to stand for Queens Ed, that's cool, too.
Q.E.D. was created by Queens resident Kambri Crews. A long-time producer and promoter of stand up comedy, Kambri is bringing the fun and creativity home to Astoria. For four years she served as the Director of Marketing and PR for the comedy club Comix, during which time she also owned and operated the 50-seat venue Ochi's Lounge. She followed that by becoming the comedy booker for the 92Y Tribeca. Kambri is also the author of the New York Times best selling memoir Burn Down the Ground (Random House) and an accomplished public speaker and storyteller, giving speeches and performing around the USA. By creating Q.E.D., Kambri hopes to bring the community together to share in learning and laughter.
Notes: OUTSIDE FOOD & DRINKS ARE NOT ALLOWED. QED has coffee, tea, soda, beer & wine plus snacks and pre-made wraps and sandwiches available.
Great class, clear instruction, all questions answered. I feel confident doing it on my own now.
Kambri is an excellent resource with a lot of useful information. She's definitely a hustler and that was the main takeaway from this class - tips on how to make yourself stand out and essentially "sell yourself." I love that she provides you with a link to some google docs with all of the class information as well as samples of PR letters, etc. My only wish is that there was more information on concrete things to do to use social media to build your brand. QED has a lot of followers, and she tells you what to do to get those followers to become loyal/subscribe to your site, but not how to build the platform from the ground up when you have few contacts to work with. From the description I thought there would be more information on this but it was breezed over rather quickly.
This class was not at all what I was expecting. I was hoping for information about retirement and tips on how to pay off loans. I did not find this class helpful but would be interested in a 2.0 version that went into more detail about IRA investing and 401ks
The instructor was very sharp and organized and kept saying "capitalism is the problem" which warmed my heart. I am really happy I went. I never imagined I would be the type of person to track all my expenses in a journal but I'm actually going to try because it seems like a really helpful first step, and that's all I needed. I had no retirement plan before this, but now I know I need a Roth IRA and multiple savings accounts. I just need them, because we have to survive under capitalism. The course also covered strategies for making more money. I thought it would stress me out but it actually relaxed me. Thank you for offering this course.
This was a fun and extremely informative workshop. I plan on attending another one. I loved it and highly recommend it!
It was a fun class but also very informative for a short one day class. A good, inexpensive class to get an idea of basic techniques. The teacher was fun and helpful, and for a 2 hr class, there was a good amount of opportunity for hands on application.
I did enjoy the hands on. I was hoping for more hands on building prosthetics.
I came into this class hoping to get some great pointers on how to create and edit my podcast. I think the instructors were not organized and a bit all over the place. Also, we weren't able to see on a large screen how to edit our podcast properly because their monitor didn't work. All in all I could have simply stayed home and searched youtube videos. Moreover, we were supposed to get follow up documents on hosting your podcast and other information the instructor never sent the email out. Wish this was a little more organized, wish it started ON TIME and had more readable or take home material.
Learning about the Public Relations and marketing, and how they work really gets me very interested even more. I would like to learn more about the Public Relations/ marketing tips.
