BARRY Hilton brings his hilarious antics to the Guild Theatre stage on Friday (June 9) at 7.30pm.
The “Cousin”, as he is known as, has a delightful knack of finding the ludicrous and the humorous in daily situations to make us laugh at life. He is enormously funny and his global track record highlights a unique ability to cut through all boundaries and appeal to any nationality, race or age.
A South African globetrotter, Barry kick-started the 2014 Hong Kong International Comedy Festival, building on a career that’s seen him fill 4000-seat auditoriums with his solo shows. In 2013 his industry peers paid tribute to Barry by presenting him with A Lifetime Achiever Award in South Africa’s Annual Comic’s Choice Awards.
