With a track record of 30 years in comedy, Barry Hilton has raised the world’s laughter level considerably.
His delightful knack of finding the ludicrous and the humorous turns daily situations on their head to make us laugh at life.
His face is as funny as his repartee, with lugubrious looks tailor-made for mirth. Barry’s gregarious personality makes him a people’s person, happy to engage with the audience before and after his shows.
Barry is a seasoned comedian who’s as streetwise as any youngster. He’s remained at the top by continually coming up with fresh material - and by having six children to keep him hip and happening.
Barry will share with PSASA members his new motivational talk and then how he Finds the Funny and adds it to his material.
This is a workshop not to be missed.
Limited seats available, so book early.
Date: November 12th 2016
Cost are as follows for PSASA Members - R300 and for Non-Members - R600
