GuilFest 2011 - Lineup

Earl Okin

Earl Okin is one of those truly unique performers that one comes across very rarely but,  for that very reason, he is almost impossible to describe.

He is primarily a world-class Jazz and Bossa Nova singer and songwriter who accompanies himself on piano or guitar but, due to a second career in the world of comedy, has developed legendary audience skills.

However, he's also been a headline comedy act on the London circuit since 1982.

The ability to charm audiences of any age, race or nationality is very much part of what he brings to his shows, alongside the legendary 'vocal trumpet' solos, witty lyrics and between-song banter.

He has performed at all the major theatres in his home town, London - from the Royal Albert Hall to the London Palladium etc., he is the most performed artist ever at the Edinburgh International Festival and has toured his one-man show literally around the world. He has guested on top TV shows all over Europe and Australia.
