One of the highlights of Sun City’s Heritage Day celebration on 24 September 2017 is a grand scale standup comedy show in the expansive Sun Park by South Africa’s elastic faced, king of clean comedy, Barry Hilton. Fans can brace for hilarious comedy in true Hilton style, with his hilariously exaggerated facial expressions and all new material. Hilton is known to several generations as a gentleman comic and a master craftsman with flawless timing, an unpredictable hairline and a gaze that doesn’t miss a thing.
After 30 years of touring, six children, two ex-wives, a new wife, six dvds, two movies, Vegas, Cleese, Connolly, Monkhouse, millions of air miles and a Lifetime Achiever statue on his mantelpiece, Hilton is undoubtedly the quintessential South African comedy giant. Forged in the fire of the global comedy circuit from London to Hong Kong, this versatile and dynamic comedy icon works the room with magnetic charm and infectious ease.
“We are thrilled to host one of South Africa’s most well known and celebrated comedians who will entertain guests with some authentic South Africa comedy which is fitting on Heritage Day. September is also Tourism month when we celebrate the importance and contribution of tourism to the local economy. There will be an array of vibrant South African style entertainment during the month, offering guests loads of opportunity to create memorable moments,” says Raul de Lima, General Manager, Sun City Resort.
