Barry Hilton

Say 'the cousin' and everybody knows exactly who you're talking about! Barry Hilton enjoys international status as a stand-up comedian and is undoubtedly one of South Africa's top performers. A skilful, generous and engaging entertainer, he performs at the highest level, pulling out all the stops for sold-out audiences in South Africa and abroad. With his irrepressible sense of humour, he brings the house down whenever he stands on stage. He is also an actor, a sought-after Master of Ceremonies at corporate events and an inspiring motivational speaker.

Barry’s material is appropriate for all ages and his quick wit; animated physical antics and hilarious facial expressions are his trademark. He regularly performs his solo show to audiences exceeding 2000 people. Hilton’s original, off-the-cuff performances and inimitable knack for adapting his material to suit client and audience requirements, ensures that he is invited back to perform time and again. Corporate clients include BMW, Huletts, Informa Telecoms and Media Awards (UK), Pepsi, BP, Nedbank, ABSA, Spar and more.

Barry’s impressive arsenal of skills, exceptional talent and sheer passion for what he does makes him the consummate professional and an excellent choice for any event and audience. He is also renowned in South Africa for starring in commercials (really funny ones) and television shows. He has released five live standup DVDs and starred in two movies: Finding Lenny and Outrageous. Finding Lenny won best narrative feature at the Pan African Film Festival in Cannes and Hilton received a lead role nomination in the Best Actor category at the Feel Good Film Festival in Hollywood.

Barry was named the 2013 Lifetime Achiever at the third Comics Choice Awards nominees function. "I’ve worked very hard to get here and be recognized in South Africa by my peers; I’m blown out of the water,” said Barry. "I’ve been invited to headline The Improv at Harrahs in Las Vegas in September but that means nothing compared to this. This is the real headline," the Port Elizabeth-based comedian said. 
Reminiscing about some of his career highlights, he mentioned opening for Scottish comedian, musician and actor Billy Connelly and being shortlisted alongside John Cleese for Best Comedy Act in Dubai in 2013.

In late 2013 Barry performed at the world famous Harrah's Improv in Las Vegas, and totally smashed the audiences at his four performances. “What a thrill to be on stage in The Entertainment Capital of The World,” says the Lifetime Achiever Recipient. Barry Hilton is the first South African comedian to be invited to perform at the 400 seater venue.

Then, the 5000 seater Grand Arena at Cape Town’s Grandwest Casino hosted Barry for a killer performance just five days after he returned to South Africa from Las Vegas – the entertainment capital of the world. This is the third time that Barry has performed as a solo artist in this enormous venue.
