Master satirist, Pieter-Dirk Uys has prepared four hours of performance choices to present nightly in his new show, An Audience with Pieter-Dirk EISH! which comes to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from February 26.

In our world of reality TV, breaking news, 400 television channels to surf through, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and SMS, choice has become the cherry on the cake of entertainment.

Every night a different show of 90 minutes, because the audience decides what they want. It could be Evita Bezuidenhout as a new ANC cadre, or Nowell Fine celebrating 40 years in the public eye. Maybe a Malema in Gucci or chains, some Zumas married or not, one or two Mandelas, a Tutu, a PW or a Pik? What about Mother Theresa making sure that Jesus will only return if the ANC stays in power? Even a chorus line of former NP leaders chanting the old national anthem. A virtual Ha-Ha-History Channel.

With the choice of 15 boxes on stage, a member of the audience chooses a number. Out come characters and entertainment that could be either a drama, a comedy, a farce or a shocking expose. Every box holds a familiar secret! Every laugh truly South African!

An Audience with Pieter-Dirk EISH! Runs at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from February 26 to March 10 with performances from Tuesdays to Saturdays at 20h00 (Sundays at 15h00) Tickets R140 booked through Computicket.
