Award winning South African comedy legend, Barry Hilton, will be performing at Carnival City for one night only on 28 August. With his quick wit, laugh-out-loud physical antics and stomach-crunching facial expressions, Barry is geared to ignite the Big Top Arena with riotous laughter before he jets off to perform at the Kuala Lumpur International Comedy Festival.
Barry has performed at internationally renowned venues such as The Royal Albert Hall in London, the MGM Grand in Macau, The Sydney Comedy Store, Harrah’s Improv in Las Vegas, The Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai and The Crown in Melbourne, Australia – the largest casino complex in the southern Hemisphere.
Humble as ever, the hilarious Hilton continues to draw capacity crowds to venues across Africa and beyond. His unique sense of humour has international appeal and has earned him a fan base that spans continents. The seasoned comedian, who performs on stages around the world, feels a very special connection with South African audiences. “As diverse as they are, the people of SA know how to laugh at life and at themselves. Nothing gives me greater joy than making people laugh,” says Barry.
Whether you’re a teenager or a pensioner, a single dad or an internet dating forty year old divorcee, you’ll laugh till your belly aches listening to Barry’s side-splitting interpretations of everyday events. “I write at least 10 seconds of new material every day,” grins Barry. “So whether you’ve seen my show ten times or never before, there is always new material to make you laugh.”
A South African Comedy Stalwart, Barry never fails to please and leaves his audience in stitches. “Barry Hilton must be the funniest comedian to have ever come out of South Africa and he is set to be one of the big comedy names in Australia and everywhere else that he is now working,” says Barry’s Australian booking agent, Graeme Gillies, owner of Grayboy Entertainment, based in Sydney but providing world-class entertainment across the globe.
Tickets for the Carnival City Big Top Arena show on Friday, 28 August are available from Computicket.
