For a very special edition of the Laughter Factory, South African comedy superstar Barry Hilton will be performing a solo, full length show for one night only in each of Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
With a track record of 30 years in comedy, Barry Hilton is considered to be one of the best in the business. His delightful knack of finding the ludicrous and the humorous turns daily situations on their head to make us laugh at life.
His face is as funny as his repartee, with lugubrious looks tailor-made for mirth. Barry’s gregarious personality makes him a people’s person, happy to engage with the audience before and after his shows.
Barry is a seasoned comedian who is as streetwise as any youngster. He’s remained at the top by continually coming up with fresh material – and by having six children to keep him on top of his game.
That universal appeal, coupled with a rigorous training on the comedy circuit alongside the likes of John Cleese, Billy Connolly and Bob Monkhouse, give him a bullet proof act that has his audiences in hysterics.
A truly international entertainer, in 2013 he became the first South African to perform at the prestigious Harrah’s Improv at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, headlining four shows. In 2014 he opened the Hong Kong Comedy Festival, followed by gigs in Singapore, Macau and Shanghai.
He’s delighted the notoriously tough crowds 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.
Three decades on stage, coupled with six kids, two ex-wives, a new wife, a few dogs, a penchant for fishing and a lifetime of living in a crazy, beautiful country have given Barry a lifetime of laughter material.
Don’t miss the chance to see of one the biggest names in South African comedy.
