Despite his great international appeal, Barry’s humour always comes with an unmistakably local flavour. Good, clean, family-friendly comedy, dished out in generous helpings, will keep you coming back for seconds, thirds and some more for dessert.
This is comedy made up of one thing and one thing only: funny. No need for vulgarity, malice or personal attacks, but rather just a unique and entertaining view of the funny and fascinating aspects that make up a uniquely South African society – all presented in his trademark style that keeps an audience on the edge of their seats, constantly wanting more.
His jokes are fresh, his perspective is unique and he is constantly moving forward (except maybe his hairline, but that’s a different story….).
This is true local comedy – presented by a true local comic. It comes as no surprise that Barry was awarded the Lifetime Achiever Award by local comedians at the annual Comic’s Choice Awards. He is unflinching in his professionalism, his dedication to clean, accessible humour and he is guaranteed to lighten up even the cloudiest of days.
So make you sure you don’t’ miss this opportunity to see one of the very best comedians – in South Africa and the whole world – in action at The Barnyard Theatres!
