Barry Hilton – Flying High

Barry totally smashed the audiences at his four September performances in Las Vegas at the Improv at Harrah’s.  The trip was arranged and promoted by Emerald Casino and Resort and DSTV.  While in Vegas, Barry and his wife renewed their wedding vows at the Graceland Wedding Chapel, saw the incredible La Reve and Cirque De Soleil KA shows, enjoyed comedy shows, sightseeing and catching up with old South African friends now living in Las Vegas, Texas and Los Angeles.

The 5000 seater Grand Arena at Cape Town’s Grandwest Casino hosted Barry for a killer performance just five days after he returned to South Africa from Las Vegas – the entertainment capital of the world.  This is the third time that Barry has performed as a solo artist in this enormous venue.

CHEVY are continuing their radio advertising campaign using Barry’s voice and persona.

Barry’s diary has limited dates for corporate events during November.  If you would like to use his services for your year-end or other function, please email

Following on from an extremely successful stint on board the Holland America line VOLENDAM, earlier this year, Barry will once again board this exclusive ocean liner during February next year for the trip from Hong Kong to Phu My.  Negotiations are also in the works for him to join one of their world cruises as a headline guest entertainer.

Barry’s Las Vegas performances this year prevented him from kickstarting the 2013 Hong Kong Comedy Festival.  He has however already been booked for next year’s event in September.  Barry will then also perform in Shanghai, Macau and Singapore.

Easily South Africa’s most hardworking comedian, Barry is scheduled for the following public shows.
