Barry Hilton - Comedian, MC and Motivational Speaker - Port Elizabeth

Considered to be one of South Africa’s funniest, Barry has become a house hold name with his distinctive brand of South African humour. Known as being the cleanest comedian in the country, Barry prides himself on his optimistic outlook on South African life.

Since becoming a professional comedian in 1983, Barry has performed to sell-out crowds both locally and internationally and was the first South African comedian to perform at the prestigious London comedy club, The Comedy Store.

BARRY HILTON, “The Cousin”, has reached international status as a stand-up comedian performing all over the world. Many agree that he is, without a doubt, one of the top comedians South Africa has ever seen.

Performing his original brand of South African humour, his sell-out shows are proof of his popularity as “the cleanest” comedian in the country. He entertains at the highest possible level without barbed prejudice, snide racism or crude language. (He says “kak” more than a couple of times, but that doesn’t really count!)
Hilton is an icon and - as many other comedians may agree - a role model in the entertainment industry.

Say 'the cousin' and everybody knows exactly who you're talking about, my china!

Barry Hilton is a household name in South Africa and audiences love his irrepressible sense of humour! He is a skilful, generous and engaging entertainer who pulls out all the stops for audiences across the country and his shows are invariably sold out well in advance.

Known (and loved) as the cleanest comic around, his unique brand of humour has an uncanny ability to entertain and it shows an awareness of the fine line between laughing at and laughing with the jokes about an array of 'sensitive' issues. He has the knack of taking every day situations and turning them into hilarious skits on stage. Barry Hilton is undoubtedly South Africa's best-loved funny man!

Talking “kak” as he puts it, the cousin makes it fun being South African, and if Proudly SA should reward someone for doing his bit for supporting the country, he deserves a nomination. Barry’s optimistic outlook on SA makes you feel proud to be a South African. His positively radiant patriotism rubs off and makes the audience feel as one, subconsciously eradicating for a short time, all differences in colour, creed and social standing.

Not only does Barry enjoy sell out South African tours, he has performed to sold-out audiences around the globe. He was also the first South African stand-up comedian to perform at the prestigious London comedy club, The Comedy Store. So he’s obviously got the universal formula right!

With this phenomenal success it's no surprise that he's been in the business for 23 years.

His unique style of entertainment is a real winner at corporate functions from golf days and launches right through to conferences and gala banquets. In addition to his corporate shows, Barry has devised an exciting motivational concept for companies. The “Laughter Factory” shows employees how to bring more laughter into the workplace, and how success comes with laughter.

Barry Hilton is renowned not only for his comedy, but also for starring in commercials (really funny ones) and giving them a certain sense of South African-ness. “The Cousin” has also featured in several television shows, including his own series entitled “Funny You Should Say That” on SABC prime time.

Being a prolific writer, Barry pens all his own material, including music. His work has been captured on video and CD and they have all sold extremely well.
