Win tickets for the Barry Hilton show

2014-04-30 00:00

SOUTH African comedy legend Barry Hilton will perform his riveting new show, The Way I See It, at the YMCA in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday.

The event is organised by Yellodot Events, with whom The Witness has partnered in giving away 10 double tickets to our readers.

Hilton’s new show gives audiences a peek inside the goings on in his quirky head. Hilton has a delightful knack of finding the ludicrous and humorous in daily situations, turning what seems perfectly normal on its head to make us laugh at life.

“I just see things differently,” says Hilton. “It’s not even as if I’m on the look-out for new material; it literally just jumps out at me. Every day. All day.”

Hilton’s shows are unscripted, bursting with an electrifying mix-match of content. Lively retellings of recent observations and experiences, together with the finest selection of older fan favourites and brand new material keep audiences on the edge of their seats. So eclectic is the content that you could watch three or four shows in a row and none will be exactly the same.

“Travelling so extensively gives me heaps of new material and makes me focus on making my material accessible to as many people as possible,” says Hilton.

Hilton continues to draw capacity crowds to venues across Africa. He regularly features on Comedy Central Africa and has five signature DVDs to his name, as well as two movies.

Be sure to catch his one-night-only show on May 3 at the YMCA in Pietermaritzburg. To WIN double tickets, SMS “Witness Barry Hilton”, followed by your name and surname, to 32697 by latest 5 pm today. Winners will be announced in Weekend Witness on Saturday, but they will also be notified telephonically. Ts&Cs apply. For more information call 033 811 1793.
