The Live Series Presents Barry Hilton: Grey Matters is a 75-minute stand-up comedy special featuring one of South Africa’s best comedians performing in front of a live theatre audience. If you don’t manage to get tickets to the live show, fear not! The special will ultimately premier on DSTV’s Box Office. This will be the sixth episode of the series and the first of 2018.
Ensuing the success of The Live Series, which has previously featured top comedian talents including Marc Lottering, Donovan Goliath, Jason Goliath and Joey Rasdien, 2018 sees Barry return to the Lyric Theatre following his previous Live Series show in 2014. The Live Series Presents Barry Hilton will be the seventh live-comedy special to feature exclusively on DSTV’s Box Office.
As one of South Africa’s most recognisable faces, with a voice that is personally responsible for leaving audiences hyperventilating with laughter, Barry’s comedic talent has become one of our great national treasures. His delightful knack of finding the ludicrous and the humorous turns daily situations on their head to make us laugh at life.
With over 30 years in comedy, which has seen him sell out venues from the Sydney Opera House to Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Barry has become universally adored for his acts that are intelligent, impeccably timed and never crude or derogatory – just insanely funny. In 2013 the industry cemented Barry in the history books by presenting him with one of its highest honours: A Lifetime Achiever Award, presented at the Annual Comics’ Choice Awards.
Barry’s unique ability to adapt to the times and continually produce hysterical content that is not only fresh and relevant, but also classic in its ability to engage the crowd with the fun and familiar persona we have all come to love and know as Barry Hilton.
