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.
I would definitely take a class with Sara again. This class was so exciting. Super thankful to Sara for sharing her knowledge with us and fulfilling a few of our dreams/bucket list items. The environment was very relaxed and Sara came prepared with all the materials needed and to answer the myriad of questions thrown at her by our very inquisitive and interactive group. I can’t wait to pick up my soap next week.
Fun and dynamic!
Not only were Colin and Chris informative, they were also most encouraging to beginning students. Their follow-up email and extraordinary offer of free recording time puts them over the top. Great job, guys!
Informative and entertaining
The guys were as thorough as could be in the allotted time given. I’d def come back for more if they are covering other topics in podcasting.
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.
