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.

Attended: Special Effects Makeup

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.

Attended: Intro to Podcasting

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.

Attended: Soapmaking Workshop

Loved the class- learned a lot! The only thing is I wish we could have made a variety of different scents for each bar, but I completely understand that doesn't really work for batches! Thank you

For starters, my partner and I had no clue the class we attended was the 3rd session and we were the only "new" ones in the class which meant we were behind everyone else. Not sure if this wasn't clearly indicated on your website but you should add a comment saying the session already began. The class itself is poorly organized and structured, the 2 instructors improvise everything - literally spoke in front of everyone debating what they should do next. with 20 min remaining in the class the people in the next event starting setting up the area which was annoying and distracting. Probably not going back to QED
