SA’s Comedy King, Barry Hilton, Is Coming To PMB
Great news for local comedy fans! South Africa’s unstoppable, elastic-faced funnyman, Barry Hilton, is coming to Pietermaritzburg in June for a one-night only show at the Golden Horse Casino.
He will perform his brand new one-man show, The Way I see It, on Sunday the 15th of June. The Way I See It gives audiences a peek inside the goings on in his quirky head. Hilton has a delightful knack of finding the ludicrous and humorous in daily situations, turning what seems perfectly normal on its head to make us laugh at life.
Hilton’s shows are unscripted, bursting with an electrifying mix-match of content. Lively retellings of recent observations and experiences together with the finest selection of older fan favourites and brand new material, keep audiences on the edge of their seats. So eclectic is the content that you could watch three or four shows in a row and no one will be exactly the same.
“Travelling so extensively gives me heaps of new material and makes me focus on making my material accessible to as many people as possible,” says Hilton.
Humble as ever, Hilton continues to draw capacity crowds to venues across Africa. He regularly features on Comedy Central Africa and has five signature DVDs to his name, as well as two movies. Last year, he filmed a pilot episode for a new SA sitcom, did dozens of radio adverts, recorded a television advert, tackled a record number of corporate gigs, navigated a cross country off-road championship, worked on five international cruise liners and celebrated his 30th year as a professional comedian. There is just no slowing down for this veteran comedian.
“If his rubber-like facial expressions don’t have you rolling on the floor laughing, then his hysterical observations of everyday situations definitely will. Don’t miss this show. It’s going to be a goodie,” says Prabashni Reddy, the Marketing Manager at Golden Horse .
Tickets to the show cost R120 and are available via Computicket. The show starts at 19:00.
