South Africa’s favourite funny man, Barry Hilton, otherwise known as “The Cousin”, is cooking up a storm. His latest tasty offering is a mouth-watering combination of flavoursome titbits from earlier shows, personal encounters, musical compilations and hilarious interpretations of everyday life. This show will be cooking at the LYRIC THEATRE LONDON ON 21 JANUARY 2007.
Barry Hilton, a truly international stand-up comedian, is appreciated for his original brand of humour anywhere in the world. No nationality is safe from his hysterically funny gags which include poking fun at Afrikaners in Brakpan, Eskimo kisses, posh Englishmen, BMW drivers.
Not only does Barry enjoy sell out South African tours, he performed to sold-out audiences around the globe. He was also the first South African stand-up comedian to perform at the prestigious London comedy club, The Comedy Store. So he’s obviously got the universal formula right! With this phenomenal success it’s no surprise that he’s been in the business for 23 years.
Yes! The man was born funny, and funny he remains! Barry brings the houses down whenever he stands on stage. A stage which he has shared with such comic greats as Billy Connoly, Bob Monkhouse, Bobby Davro and Les Dennis.
Without him even saying a word you laugh, as he has the spiritual energy needed to heighten a person’s sense of humour by just being himself, and that in itself is an honour. “I don’t work out a routine or anything like that, I just say the first thing that comes into my mind while I am on stage. I love talking nonsense.”
With a pinch of devilishness, a generous dash of humour and a hint of quirkiness, Barry skillfully blends his ingredients together for comedy that is really well done. Spooned together for dynamic effect and stirred for maximum impact, HIS SHOW is guaranteed to be a sidesplitting event – especially for the ‘cousins’ – that will bring the house down.
