Earl Grey has achieved success chiefly through his remarkable impressions and 45 minute cabaret act featuring such TV celebrities as Cilla Black, Mystic Meg and Mrs Merton, assorted soap stars from Coronation Street and Eastenders, a much in demand Dame Edna Everage and H.M. The Queen alongside singers Dusty Springfield, Eartha Kitt and Diana Ross and screen idols from the glory days of Hollywood such as Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Vivien Leigh and Carol Channing.

Born not in a trunk, but in a Lincolnshire farm, Earl discovered a talent for performing which led to acting in school productions and the local drama group.
After training for three years at the Birmingham School of Speech and Dramatic Art, he worked as part of the production team with Granada TV and particularly enjoyed his time with Coronation Street. Earl has worked in all areas of entertainment: television, summer season, cabaret and many more performances all over the country, including two seasons at Oldham Coliseum.
In 1991, he created the role of Sylvia in Cameron Mackintosh's Moby Dick, which transferred to the Piccadilly Theatre. A year later, he enjoyed similar success in the London production of Whoop Dee Doo, and appeared as the Queen in the Julie Walters film Brazen Hussies.
Since then he has appeared in A Patriot for Me with the RS, TV's Scratchy and Co, Don't Ask For The Moon, the last show in the Theatre Not Cabaret season at the Albany Theatre, Frankly Scarlett at the King's Head and San Antonio (playing Katherine Hepburn, Bette Davies, Tallulah Bankhead and Vivien Leigh!) and scored considerable success playing Emory in the revival of The Boys In The Band at the Aldwych.
Most recent work included a one man show 'Silver Heaven' at the Jermyn Street Theatre, 'Mockumentary' a comedy TV pilot and many appearances as Her Majesty, notably at the Langham, Claridges, The Savoy and Hampton Court.
