A comedy icon evolving with the times

A comedy icon evolving with the times

South Africa’s elastic faced, king of clean comedy, Barry Hilton, is bringing his new humorous creation, ‘Evolver’, to Silverstar Casino in Krugersdorp on October 28 and 29. Fans can brace for comedy in true Hilton style. ‘Evolver’ promises to showcase the funnyman at his vibrant best, with Hilton presenting his brand new material.

Forged in the fire of the global comedy circuit from London to Hong Kong, this versatile and dynamic comedy icon works the room with magnetic charm and infectious ease. With a career spanning 30 years, Hilton has performed on five of the seven continents. This seasoned raconteur recently shot the lights out with a sold-out 4200-seat arena show – something no other local comic has ever achieved and in January this year, he sold out the main concert hall of the internationally renowned Sydney Opera House. He performs regularly in Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and of course across Africa.

After 30 years of touring, six children, two ex-wives, a new wife, six DVDs, two movies, Vegas, Cleese, Connolly, Monkhouse, millions of air miles and a Lifetime Achiever statue on his mantelpiece, Hilton is undoubtedly the quintessential South African comedy giant.
