Earl Okin: Nothing To Do With Sex Whatsoever!

Edinburgh Festival

This is Earl Okin's 10th anniversary in Edinburgh and once again he stands out among the other cabaret performers on the fringe. His material is marked by his wicked sense of humour and delicious insight.

What makes him really exceptional, however, is the music and lyrics that make up most of the evening. Okin starts the show on guitar and roughly splits the time between that and his piano.

He also manages to produce horn sounds from non existent instruments.

A set of Jazzy tunes is delivered in a carefully measured manner which is an utter delight, whether it be in his irresistible take of , 'My Way', aimed at all theatre managers. or on to the 'fruitier' numbers!
