Description

A top night of stand up comedy with MARCEL LUCONT, EARL OKIN & GARY TRO (MC) plus funny guests!

Marcel Lucont

Flâneur, raconteur, bon-viveur, Marcel Lucont is easily the best French comedian on the UK circuit today. If you don't believe this, just ask him yourself.
Marcel has entertained the world with his wry observations, bawdy chansons and top-class sex poetry, and is the author of the superb book "What We French Think Of You British... And Where You Are Going Wrong" (New Holland Publishers)

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. (See below for a variety of crits.)

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 is as comfortable on stage at Festivals in front of 65,000 people as he is in intimate clubs. He has entertained at private parties for all sorts of celebrities, including Queen Elizabeth II. Bizarrely, he is also a favourite of the King and Queen of Sweden.
He has performed alongside such Jazz legends as Benny Carter, Milt Hinton, Adelaide Hall, Barney Kessel, Cleo Laine and Stephane Grappelly.

His set at the Montreal Comedy Festival proved to be the most popular of the year and Earl found himself the recipient of business cards from just about all the TV and film companies from LA.
He has even opened on tour for major Rock stars such as Van Morrison and Paul McCartney.

"You are quite a genius you are - you have managed to find a niche in Cabaret I have never seen nor heard before - you are simply brilliant. Hard to categorize - musician/comedian or what - I guess you are anything the audience wants to categorize you as long as they book you.
"Age does not matter for he appeals to all from 17 to senility... master of the art of cabaret."
'The Scotsman'
"Multi-talented musical supremo' - TIME OUT.

Gary Tro as MC

Gary started performing his self-deprecating & likeable, observational story-telling stand up in August 2010. He regularly MCs and has also taken two successful shows up to Edinburgh; "Gags, Songs & Bombs!" and "Tales of the Unaccepted", which garnered 5 and 4 star reviews.
