Enjoy a night of non-stop laughs with award winning South African comedian Barry Hilton in Stanford on 24 June. It’s a family friendly show and proceeds from ticket sales will go towards Stanford Rotary Club Projects.
Earlier this year, the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International named Barry Hilton a Paul Harris Fellow in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among peoples of the world. This is Rotary International’s highest award for public service.
With a career spanning a phenomenal 30 years, Barry has performed on 5 of the seven continents and is well known in SA for his radio and TV adverts, movie roles and a host of DVDs. He is a sought after corporate entertainer and best known for his large scale public shows. Last year he sold out the 4200 Big Top Arena at Carnival City with his solo show and in January this year, he sold out the main concert hall of the internationally renowned Sydney Opera House. He performs regularly in Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, UK and of course across Africa.
Although he spends much of his time touring, Barry calls Hermanus home and is delighted to be performing in neighbouring Stanford in June. “We love exploring Stanford Village and have some great friends who call it home,” says Barry. Tickets are available from Stanford Tourism or call 0827311311 for more information.
Barry hosts a Monthly Comedy Club in Hermanus which features Cape Town comedians. “The implementation of the Hermanus Comedy Club has not only offered comedians another outlet for their talents but is also exposing the locals in our town to comedy in a brand new way and I’m thrilled to be doing so,” says Barry.
The Rotary Club of Brits-Harbeespoort also presented a Certificate “to Barry Hilton who embodies the very qualities that we in Rotary strive for, and who through his comedy shows has been an ambassador for South Africa for over 30 years, travelling extensively overseas and locally bringing people of all walks of life together through laughter and at the same time supporting a number of cancer charities. A worthy recipient of this Paul Harris recognition – in the true spirit of Service Above Self.”
