‘Sex symbol’ brings laughs to Balcombe

Earl Okin , the self-proclaimed musical genius and sex symbol, plays live at the Balcombe club this Saturday, November 9, as part of the Barnstormers Comedy Club.

Earl 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.

He’s been a headline act on the London comedy circuit since 1982. Earl has performed at all the major theatres in London – from the Royal Albert Hall to the London Palladium.

He is the most performed artist ever at the Edinburgh festival and has toured his one man show around the world.

Earl has also entertained at private parties for all sorts of celebrities, including the Queen, and the King & Queen of Sweden.

He will be supported by Andy White and Paul Thorne.

Andy hails from Birmingham. He combines silly voices and a mad Afro to devastating effect. Andy’s comedy embraces funny faces, observational humour, topical humour and his ‘mixed race’ background.

Since performing at the Edinburgh festival in 1995, Paul Thorne has established himself as one of the country’s most sought after stand-ups.

He has developed a unique blend of playful gags and on-the-spot wit, drawing on a wide range of subjects, from topical to the simply absurd. As well as playing at Britain’s major venues, Paul can be seen weekly at the London Comedy Store.

The show starts at 8pm. Tickets cost £14 on the door or £12.50 in advance. Call 01444 811372.

Barnstormers play four gigs over the winter season from September to March at the Balcombe Club.
