BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: BARRY HILTON
Enjoy a night of laugh-out-loud fun with the hilarious Barry Hilton in Somerset West at the Playhouse Theater on 1 and 2 February 2019.
A South African comedy stalwart, Barry is still criss-crossing the country and the world with his unique and larger-than-life approach to things we all have in common and a hilarious take on our quirks and differences.
Apart from being an absolute audience favourite, Barry Hilton is also known for his professionalism and his dedication to good, clean comedy. These are just some of the reasons that saw him awarded with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the South African Comics’ Choice Awards – voted for by his peers and colleagues in the industry.
He’s known for never going for the easy gags, cheap shots and lazy punchlines of dirty and vulgar comedy. If you’re lucky enough to remember one of the multitude of jokes that fly your way during one of his shows, you’ll be able to tell it to anybody from your boss to your gran!
Barry knows the intrinsic art of being funny and has a never-ending supply of new, side-splitting humour that is drawn from everyday situations.
This is also one of the reasons he has been able to connect with similar ease with audiences across the globe. He’s performed at the Sydney Opera House, in Canada, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand the UK and Ireland. Jami Gong of the TakeOut Comedy Club in Hong Kong has described him as “Explosive, Universal and Very Funny”.
