“When it comes to humour, Barry is brilliant!” says Sharon de Leur, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. “As part of Caesars Entertainment, the largest entertainment and casino group in the world, Emerald Resort & Casino is very proud to be showcasing Barry Hilton at one of the best comedy clubs in Las Vegas.
He knows just how to extract humour from everyday life and turn it into a uniquely expressive ‘Barry’ show that will have you in stitches of laughter.”
“We often partner with Emerald Resort & Casino when we want to spoil our subscribers with competitions that offer top notch prizes and trips,” says Majola Sibanda - Customer Retention Manager at DStv. “Through their relationship with LCI (London Clubs International) and Caesar’s Entertainment they have access to those ‘money can’t buy’ experiences, like meeting Jerry Seinfeld and other greats in the entertainment world like Elton John, Celine Dion and Shania Twain.”
Barry has been making people laugh all over the world for the last 30 years. In 2012 he performed in America, Hong Kong, London, Ireland, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Mauritius, throughout Africa (including Zambia, Mozambique, Botswana and Swaziland), and on three international cruise liners. 2013 has already seen him perform in Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, Dubai as well as on two Australian and one American cruise liner.
Now, he is off to the entertainment capital of the world!
"When I was starting out as a comedian, one of my mentors told me 'Keep it clean and you'll always be on the scene',” says Barry. Those words from UK comic Johnny Noble have stayed with him to this day and over an incredible three decades of comedy.
He has worked with and opened for comic greats, including Billy Connolly, performed in top international venues such as the Royal Albert Hall in London and both the London and Sydney Comedy Clubs. He was in fact the first South African comic to ever perform at the London Comedy Store in 2001, and 10 years later, also the first SA comedian to perform at the Sydney Comedy Store. Now, he will be the first South African comedian to perform at The Improv at Harrah’s Las Vegas.
