Harry Sideropoulos is an award-winning stage actor, singer, voice-over artist, speaker, businessman, and foodie who has been performing for over 20 years. He began his public career on 94, 7 Highveld Stereo's Rude Awakening Breakfast Show many years ago and quickly became a vital component of the show for 6 successful years before retiring to focus completely on his theatrical career.
Harry has since performed and produced a plethora of performances in his hometown of Johannesburg, as well as frequent appearances throughout America and Canada. He enjoys comedy and singing jazz and blues, and he has received three Naledi Theatre Awards as well as two Naledi Theatre Award nominations for his efforts on stage.
Recently, Harry has expanded his brand of one-of-a-kind pop-up entertainment experiences around the country. He loves food but has never aspired to run a full-time restaurant; instead, he produces pop-up gourmet experiences for the corporate and private markets, blending his love of food and entertainment. Harry is also a popular MC with a distinct style of entertainment.
He becomes your event ringmaster with his deep, gravelly voice, blending his MC duties with comedy, music, audience engagement, and lighthearted frivolity, making his guests feel as if they've spent an evening entertained by a friend. With his highly unusual, larger-than-life personality, Harry may also be booked as a key-note speaker for corporate firms, leveraging his skills as a performer and a comic to ignite thought, inspire conversation, and bring down the house with laughter.
According to the Sunday Times, "tasting his food and experiencing his entertainment in his signature raspy voice - live, should be on everyone's bucket list." "He's hysterically funny!" wrote The Star Newspaper. He sings and dances like a bawdy angel and a Broadway butterfly."
"Harry creates magic on stage by immersing his audience in his entertainment universe." He's a fantastic artist and orator, and it was an honour to work with him. Harry can entertain people of many cultural backgrounds, providing something for everyone in the audience, and that adaptability is hard to come by!"
