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!


Attended: Drink and Draw

Space was tight when I arrived, and I wasn't on the list possibly because I booked through coursehorse. No drink special when I attended, maybe update the description of the event "We'll be offering 16oz Queens Lager by Queens Brewery for $3 each while supplies last!" $7 drafts is what I was met with. Class itself was as described, a free drawing session with a live model. I wish it was a bit more organized and honored the described drink special.

Attended: Drink and Draw

Great way to spend an evening - makes a very good date night regardless of how artistic you (or your date) are. They provide some supplies, but I'd say bring your own if you have them. We had one model doing a variety of timed poses throughout the evening. The music was cool, and the drinks are pretty tasty...I'll be going back.

Teacher was very patient and knowledgeable. Sarah provided good information and specific details on the soap making process. She interacted with the whole group and we all are happy to having attended the class.

Attended: Swing Dancing / Lindy Hop Workshop for Beginners

Instructors were sweet and light-hearted but the space was far too small for such an enormous turnout, which is very encouraging but also just made it real tight. No one's fault, but a bigger space would greatly improve the class I think!
