EVOLVER Barry Hilton


There’s just no slowing down award winning South African comedy legend, Barry Hilton. With more comedians on the SA comedy scene than ever before, Barry still tops the list with theatres, corporates and advertising agencies. His unique ability to adapt, reinvent and evolve with the times ensures he’s never been more popular – or funny. His new show Evolver comes to Port Elizabeth on 9 and 10 September and sees him at his vibrant best, showcasing brand new material.

With a career spanning a phenomenal 30 years, this seasoned raconteur last year shot the lights out with a sold-out 4200-seat arena show – something no other local comic has ever achieved. More recently, he enjoyed stellar solo performances at the iconic Sydney Opera House and also the Clapham Grand in London. Humble as ever, Barry continues to draw capacity crowds to venues across Africa and beyond. In 2017, he’ll be performing 7 shows in Canada.

Last year Barry headlined the Kuala Lumpur International Comedy Festival and before that, the Hong Kong International Comedy Festival. He regularly performs in Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, the UK and of course across Africa. In 2013 he was invited to perform in Las Vegas before receiving the Comics Choice Lifetime Achiever Award. A more experienced and versatile comedian is hard to find.

With his quick wit, laugh-out-loud physical antics and stomach-crunching facial expressions, Barry never fails to please and leaves his audience in stitches. He feels a very special connection with South African audiences. “As diverse as they are, the people of SA know how to laugh at life and at themselves and they love it,” says Barry. “Nothing gives me greater joy that making people laugh and I often consider myself one of the luckiest people alive to be able to do what I do.”

Whether you’re a teenager or a pensioner, a single dad or an internet dating forty year old divorcee, you’ll laugh till your belly aches listening to Barry’s side-splitting interpretations of everyday events. “Whether you’ve seen my show ten times or never before, there is always new material to make you laugh,” adds Barry.

He regularly features on Comedy Central Africa and has six DVDs to his name as well as three movies. Barry stars in numerous commercials and enjoys a full diary of corporate and public shows. His ability to deliver hilarious material without being crude or using foul language has ensured he continues to strive and thrive
