With a track record of 35 years in comedy, Barry Hilton is considered to be one of the best in the business. His delightful knack of finding the ludicrous and the humorous turns daily situations on their head to make us laugh at life.

His universal appeal has created a global fan base through tours taking in America, Hong Kong, London, Ireland, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Mauritius and Africa highlighting his ability to cut through all boundaries and appeal to any nationality, race or age.

That universal appeal, coupled with a rigorous training on the comedy circuit alongside the likes of John Cleese, Billy Connolly and Bob Monkhouse, give him bullet proof act, that has his audiences in hysterics.

In 2013 he became the first South African to perform at the prestigious Harrah’s Improv at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, headlining four shows. He opened the 2014 Hong Kong Comedy Festival, followed by gigs in Singapore, Macau and Shanghai. Last year, he performed in the main concert hall of the iconic Sydney Opera House – a career highlight.

He’s delighted the notoriously tough crowds in London’s Clapham Grand and his hilarious performances in Dubai saw him shortlisted alongside John Cleese for the Best Comedy Act in Dubai’s Timeout Nightlife Awards 2013.

He was the first South African to perform at London’s Comedy Store in 2001, and 10 years later the first to perform at Sydney Comedy Store. He fills 4,000-seat theatres with his solo shows, yet is just as adept at adding comic class to corporate events as the Master of Ceremonies or the headline act. Barry is not only one of the most experienced and versatile comedians around, he’s also one of the funniest. Don’t miss the chance to see of one the biggest names in South African comedy.
