EARL OKIN: Nothing To Do With Sex Whatsover!

Edinburgh Festival

The Festival is really under way. Earl Okin is back for his 11th consecutive year. He is, if anything, funnier than ever, just as amazing on both guitar and piano, and his 'trumpet' style is still mind blowing.

To a most appreciative audience he exercised his magic again. Age does not matter for he appeals to all from 17 to senility.

This year's show is 'Nothing To Do With Sex Whatsoever' and if you believe that you'll believe anything. For much of the time you think he's only ad-libbing, but slowly realise that you are in the presence of a master of the art of cabaret.

The man is unmissable as singer, songwriter, Jazz musician, comedian and, possibly my favourite this year, as a dance-track singer.

He's a joy! He is classic! He is a must!

Russell Hunter.
