Barry Hilton Career

Barry worked as an electrician for six years and later went to work as the maintenance manager of a hotel frequented by the cast of the comedy television show ‘Biltong and Potroast’. He met Johny Noble who managed to get him into his first gig at The Holiday Inn, Port Elizabeth in May 1983.

This was followed by a six-month stint as compere at cabaret spot, the Millionaires Club in Cape Town after which he relocated to Johannesburg to perform at the local pub, The Jolly Roger.

While he was performing at The Jolly Roger he was discovered by agent Josie Broude of the “Don Hughes Organisation” run by Maurice Fresco who represented her for 10 years until her death in 1994.

He was the first South African to perform at Wild Coast Sun and Sun City Extravaganza. He continued to perform as a relatively unknown comic at the Sun City Super Bowl in ‘Laugh Aid’ 1989. Due to his mother’s illness with cancer, Hilton returned to South Africa from a four-night gig called ‘In on the park’ at St Helier on the Channel Islands Jersey where he opened for Billy Connolly.

In 1990 he moved back to South Africa permanently, returning to the Runway Bar for four years to continue his work in a new Connolly inspired direction. Here Joe Parker advised him to book sets and take money from the door rather than working for guaranteed money gigs.

Basil O’Hagen gave Hilton the opportunity to do so at Dan Keld West, and after having performed for only six people on the first night, gigs picked up steadily and Hilton’s career in comedy started to look promising.
