"Kenneth Earle was born into a theatrical family, his parents being Jugglers, he toured with them until he was nine years old, when he started boarding at Dulwich College. Kenneth started as a film actor, and then became the comedy half of Kenneth Earle & Malcolm Vaughan.

Malcolm also had a number of top ten hits. When the act folded Kenneth returned to acting for films.

"When Kenneth stopped performing he became an agent looking after quite a few household names, with artists in such diverse booking as Las Vegas, London Palladium, Films, TV Series and starring in West End plays. Additionally he has written, produced and directed a number of pantomimes also many summer seasons in England and Jersey, in theatres, hotels and night clubs.

"The famous agency London Management asked him to join them, where he stayed for a very happy ten years, booking most of the American artists for the Des O'Connor Show.

A position that he held for four years with great success, booking thousands of artists and many major stars, both English and American. He devised and produced Comedy/Rock/Adult/Festivals, also writing and producing shows for the circuit.
