South African comedy veteran to light up JBR on Thursday June 29
South African comedy legend Barry Hilton is coming back to the Middle East for a one-night-only gig at the Mövenpick Hotel in JBR on Thursday June 29.
The comedy veteran has racked up a 30-year career in the business, and is widely considered to be one of Africa’s greatest stand-up comedians, so his arrival in the UAE will be a must-see for comedy fans.
Looking a little further back, Hilton was the first South African comic to perform at the Comedy Store in London back in 2001, and again at the Sydney Comedy Store in 2011. His wide-ranging experience in comedy has also seen him tour Asia, including gigs in Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau and Shanghai – a tricky undertaking for stand-up comedians.
