Seventeen years since the passing of Quentin Crisp, the unforgettable Quentin Crisp.
Crisperanto – The Quentin Crisp Archives – are lovingly and comprehensively curated by archivist/curator Phillip Ward. So much extraordinary material there. Don’t miss it.
Here’s just a little sampling of the man himself, starting with his acting debut in the 1967 short, Captain Busby (based on a surreal poem by Philip O’Connor)
Hurt and Crisp can be seen together in the 1990 documentary, Resident Alien (selections from that can be seen here)
Here is Quentin Crisp Live in Los Angeles in 1980 (in four parts)
