His act is intelligent, observational, impeccably timed and never crude, sexist or racist. Just enormously funny. That universal appeal, combined with a intense training on the comedy circuit alongside the likes of John Cleese, Billy Connolly and Bob Monkhouse, give him a professionalism welcomed by any comedy club or corporation - punctual, polite, always topical, and always a strong performer.

Barry lives in Cape Town in South Africa, and has become a national icon in a country where a new generation of comics is beginning to find its voice. In 2013 the industry paid tribute to Barry with A Lifetime Achiever Award, presented at the Annual Comics’ Choice Awards. Barry became the first South African to perform at the prestigious Harrah's Improv at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, headlining four shows.

Barry has created a global fan base through tours taking in America, Hong Kong, London, Ireland, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Mauritius, Africa and even at sea on international cruise liners, highlighting his ability to cut through all boundaries and appeal to any nationality, race or age.

He was the first South African to perform at London’s Comedy Store in 2001, and 10 years later the first to perform at Sydney Comedy Store. Barry is not only one of the most experienced and versatile comedians around, he’s also one of the funniest.

HIRE BARRY HILTON









With a track record of 30 years in comedy, Barry Hilton has raised the world’s laughter level considerably.

Barry has a knack of finding the ludicrous and the humorous turns daily situations on their head to make us laugh at life performer.

GRIFF has wanted to be a comedian since he was three years old where his mother use to set up the seniors in The Convalescent Homes where she worked, in an audience typesetting and let her son make sleeping and comatose old people laugh. So after working the Geriatric Circuit for a couple of summers his destiny was settled. Since then, that little funny boy with the faith of a PLANET has made a name for himself as one of the leading comedians and On-Air Personalities in the Country by headlining across North America (including Canada), New Zealand, The U.K. and Africa.


With his quick wit and unsurpassed knowledge for sports news, “GRIFF” took sports took sports to the ‘next level’ with his comedic twist on athletes and their stories. In 1999 he received Georgia’s Sportcaster of the Year Award and in 2004 “Street Skillz”, a program he provided the color commentary for was nominated for an EMMY.


Ultimately, GRIFF is a Comedian, an On-Air Personality, an Author, an Actor, a Motivational Speaker, a Daddy, an EMMY nominated Sportscaster and a man who puts Jesus Christ ahead of all men all wrapped into one.
