Legendary South African comedian Barry Hilton is heading for Manchester!
After performances in Australia at the Sydney Opera House, Canada, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, it’s evident that Barry is not only one of South Africa’s favourite comedians, but a firm worldwide favourite. Later this year, he will be jetting to Hong Kong to host the Hong Kong International Comedy Festival, but this is your chance to see him in action - and at his hilarious best - on local soil.
Despite his great international appeal, Barry’s humour always comes with an unmistakably South African 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….).
