Basic Bio

If Barry Hilton isn’t the quintessential South African comedy giant, no one is.

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.

Barry has thirty years of touring, six children, two ex-wives, a new wife, five DVDS, two movies, Vegas, Cleese, Connolly, millions of air miles and a Lifetime Achiever statue on his mantelpiece ….

The deft timing and tap-dancing mind leave any crowd thrilled that they came, regardless of their own background.

After what can only be described as one of the most successful careers in South African stand-up history, Barry Hilton shows no sign of slowing down.

In 2013, he became the first South African to perform at the prestigious Harrah’s Improv in Las Vegas.

2014 saw the “cousin”, as he is known to a whole nation, do a tour of the UK, open the Hong Kong 2014 Comedy Festival, and slot in some thumping gigs in Singapore and Macau.

He more than impressed the famously critical crowd in London’s Clapham Grand and his hilarious performances in Dubai saw him shortlisted alongside John Cleese for the Best Comedy Act in Dubai’s Timeout Nightlife Awards 2013.

Not bad for a former electrician who just couldn’t help himself from seeing the funny side.

Given the huge scale of his achievements and punishing schedule, Hilton doesn’t seem to age, instead his life experience just provides more fuel for his unique world-view.
