Quentin Crisp - An Evening With Quentin Crisp mp3 album

Quentin Crisp (born Denis Charles Pratt; 25 December 1908 – 21 November 1999) was an English writer, raconteur and actor. From a conventional suburban background, Crisp enjoyed wearing make-up and painting his nails, and worked as a rent-boy in his teens. He then spent thirty years as a professional model for life-classes in art colleges.

Disc Two: Mr. Crisp answers questions written by members of the audience before the second part commenced. An Evening with Quentin Crisp opened at the Players Theatre, New York on December 20th, 1978 after engagements in New Haven, Toronto and Washington, DC. Made in Canada. Released in a fat-box jewel case with an insert.

THE LAST WORD: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Quentin Crisp.

Quentin Crisp's honesty, about everything and with himself, made his life valuable. He was emotionally far tougher than butchissimo guys in leathers at the bar, "carrying their helmets," as he said, "even though they've come by bus". He had been through and seen through love, sex, gender, fame, failure, poverty, 60 years of deep-pile dust carpeting bedsits, and John Hurt approximating his life in five wigs, mouse to mauve, in the televised version of Crisp's memoir, The Naked Civil Servant. His individuality was in demand. His second theatrical season was packed, and he upgraded himself to a later hour with An Evening with Quentin Crisp. He took advice from Harold Pinter and Bette Midler ("That's right, baby: smile") and was perfectly patient about playing in Chipping Norton, Mold, and major cities of Australia. And then he crossed the Atlantic. First to Toronto for a day to publicise Civil Servant.

Trust the imperturbably opinionated Quentin Crisp, 88, to speak the unspeakable: dispraise of the late, lugubriously lamented Princess Diana. Responding to one of several Diana-related queries in the Q&A portion of the slight but delightful "An Evening With Quentin Crisp," Crisp deemed Diana "terribly ungrateful" in going public with her unhappy marriage, and compared her unfavorably with the mannerly demeanor of the arguably more misused Mrs. John Kennedy. Trust the imperturbably opinionated Quentin Crisp, 88, to speak the unspeakable: dispraise of the late, lugubriously lamented Princess Diana.

Quentin Crisp was reluctantly born on Christmas Day in 1908. To his dismay, he found himself to be the son of middle-class, middlebrow, middling parents who lived in Sutton, a suburb of London, England. After an uneventful childhood, he was sent, between the ages of fourteen and eighteen, to a school in Derbyshire which was like a cross between a monastery and a prison.
