South African comedy legend Barry Hilton is coming back to the Middle East for a one-night-only gig at Grand Hyatt Hotel in West Bay Lagoon on Friday, June 30.
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 Qatar will be a must-see for comedy fans. Hilton was last in the city back in 2014.
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.
With decades of experience, Hilton’s visit to Doha is a night not to be missed. Tickets are available from www.thelaughterfactory.com.
From QR185. Fri June 30, 9pm. Grand Hyatt Doha Hotel, West Bay Lagoon (4448 1234).
