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.
Really interesting. I wish we got through more of the content.
Thanks I loved the class! Learned a lot!
The class was very informative, hands on and perfect. My daughter and I went together we had lots of fun.
It was great fun. I can't wait to pick up my cured soaps. I would absolutely recommend this course. I also think it would be terrific for parent/minor child pairings. My 15 year old daughter would have loved doing this with me.
Class was very helpful in learning the basics of crochet. Left the class learning how to make a full granny square.
Wish it was a little longer! Very knowledgeable instructor, fun class.
I had a wonderful time taking this class. The instructor is a truly gifted instructor, with so much talent and knowledge to share in a very engaging way. Hopefully, she'll teach many more classes.
I am new to social media and I learned so much from this class. Nikki was so knowledgeable and any question waa answered with an easy to get explaination! I hope to take another course with her as the teacher!
Terrific course great instructor!
