BARRY HILTON FESTIVAL (article first published : 2006-05-8)

Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom presents South Africa's favourite funny man, Barry Hilton, in the Barry Hilton Festival at iZulu Theatre.

His latest tasty offering - The Best of Barry Hilton - is a mouth-watering combination of flavoursome titbits from earlier shows, personal encounters, musical compilations and hilarious interpretations of everyday life. With a pinch of devilishness, a generous dash of humour and a hint of quirkiness, Barry skilfully blends his ingredients together for comedy that is really well done. Spooned together for dynamic effect and stirred for maximum impact.

This show is guaranteed to be a side-splitting event - especially for the 'cousins' - that will bring the house down.

Aka "The Cousin ", Hilton is possibly one of South Africa's best recognised comedians and is truly an international stand-up comedian, capable of performing his original brand of humour anywhere in the world. He lives and performs in South Africa but is also in demand in other countries around the world.

To date he has released four live comedy videos and four different comedy compact discs, which have all sold extremely well. The two videos, entitled Live and Switched On and Here We Go Again are on sale at Barry's tour shows. Here We Go Again has sold in excess of 40,000 copies.

Barry Hilton has achieved something that very few South African talents have managed to do. His popularity spans all walks of life in South Africa. He is the only stand-up comedian performing in South Africa who has this type of following.

The Barry Hilton Festival takes place at the iZulu Theatre, Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom from May 17 to 21 at 19h30 from May 17 to 19 (Monday to Friday) with two shows on May 20 at 15h30 and 20h00 with a final show on May 21 at 15h00.

Tickets R75 booked through Computicket or Box-Office on 031 580 5555. Early booking is advised.
