Earl Okin is one of those rare performers..... a true original!!! Genuinely versatile, his talents range from that of a fine singer-songwriter, (in styles ranging from chart orientated tracks to trad folk and the classiest of jazz-standards, via authentic bossa-novas), to that of pianist and guitarist, as well as his unique standing as 'Vocal Trumpeter, Trombonist and Clarinetist'.
Added to all of this is his immense humour, sophisticated and witty enough to have made him perhaps the leading music & comedy act on the unforgiving London alternative comedy circuit!
Apart from many appearances on British TV shows too numerous to mention, Earl has appeared at all the major London venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, the London Palladium, Wembley Arena, the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and The Barbican.
Earl has appeared alongside everyone from Paul McCartney (Earl was the only opening act ever to be featured on a full tour of Paul McCartney & Wings) and Van Morrison to Benny Carter, Stephane Grappelli and Cleo Laine. He has appeared at music festivals around the globe and has entertained the Queen and Princess Margaret.
His one man show has made his name a legend at the amazing Edinburgh International Festival (he has an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for his number of appearances) and at venues literally around the world. Simply brilliant, hard to categorise, quintessentially a ‘live’ performer, he has to be seen in person to be believed. He has been described as a cross between Harry Connick Jr. and Victor Borge, but he is so much more than that, there really is only one... EARL OKIN!!
