Earl Okin and Bruce Airhead gives us a taste of the Cape Town Funny Festival.

Two of the United Kingdom's most popular comic acts make their way to the Afternoon Express loft. Earl Okin and Bruce Airhead are both part of the Cape Town Funny Festival which is running at the Baxter Theatre until 16 August.

Earl Okin is a man that is dubbed ‘a musical genius & sex symbol’. He was a headline act when Eddie Izzard was still finding his feet, he opened for Van Morrison and Paul McCartney, written for Cilla Black , all because of his blend of comedy and music. Born in Surrey in 1947, Okin started out as your regular musician and was signed to the same company as the Beatles in 1966.

Okin continues to work as a songwriter and jazz singer/musician, with a particular interest in Bossa Nova. He gives concerts in Brazil from time to time, as well as touring his one-man show, a mixture of music and comedy, worldwide. He has performed in New York at Birdland, The Apollo and other jazz venues, but, not forgetting his comedy side, also at Caroline's. In addition he toured India, Singapore, and other nearby countries. He has also performed at most major venues in London, including the Royal Albert and Festival Halls, The Palladium and Wembley Arena, and has performed on TV in several countries, including Brazil, Australia, Germany and now South Africa.

The metamorphosis of a man and six foot balloon is an act by Bruce Airhead - a very different balloon variety act which thrills throughout the world.

Now, we bring you a man who has wowed audiences across the globe with his unique variety act. What happens when you cross a man and a six-foot balloon?  Well, you end up with something that has to be seen to believe.
