English Comedy Night w/ Earl Okin & Andrea Hubert

Earl Okin

For years, Earl Okin has headlined under the byline ‘Musical Genius & Sex Symbol’ Earl has been a headline act on the unforgiving UK alternative comedy circuit for decades, highly respected by all his fellow performers, young and old.

He began, however, at the Comic Strip, alongside, Rik Mayall, French & Saunders, Nigel Planer et al.

Among his admirers are such names as Billy Connolly,Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Izzard (at whose clubs Earl headlined when they were both starting out). Earl has probably performed more ‘encores’ than just about anyone around and his blend of comedy and music (Tom Lehrer was one of his influences) is in demand literally around the world.

Earl has performed at such festivals as Juste Pour Rire in Montreal, the Adelaide Fringe in Australia and Humorologie in Belgium with equal success. He regularly performs in Sweden, Germany, Austria and Holland… and at such famous US clubs as The Comedy Store, Caroline’s, The Improv. and The Ice House.

Last but not least, Earl is in high demand for both corporate and private parties, having entertained not only Queen Elizabeth II but the king and queen of Sweden, too.

As with everything else he does, Earl Okin’s comedy is unique!
