(Mervyn & Neville Pillay)

Veteran entertainers and comedians Neville and Mervyn Pillay come together for a show packed with standup comedy, skits and parodies this April. They bring their latest production, Don’t Pillay With Us, to Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom’s iZulu Theatre on April 30.

No strangers to the comedy scene, Neville and Mervyn have performed throughout the country, and are renowned for finding the funny in everything. Comedy fans can look forward to yet another hilariously funny, awesomely synergized show by the “cousin brothers”.

Having traded as a Radio DJ for many years at P4, East Coast and recently Lotus FM, Neville has done it all with regards to broadcast. He is a favourite amongst listeners for his witty comebacks, hilarious parodies and laidback humorous nature. He has performed extensively throughout KZN and is also getting lots of offer to perform around the country. 

Mervyn comes with his brand of actor mimicry, imitations and impressions, having started out doing many Bollywood shows and then branching into mainstream comedy has given him a new lease on life as an entertainer. He too loves performing comedy all over. He has played to audiences throughout South Africa with his brand of comedy.

Both Neville and Mervyn have appeared in many other shows in the same line-up, shows like Three Standing Up, Aunty Rumba and Friends, Bruin Ous and Chaar Ous Comedy Night. This is the first time that they will be working as a duo. Whenever they bumped into each other, they always spoke about doing something together and when the opportunity presented itself, both of them grabbed at it.

Don’t Pillay With Us is filled with stand-up comedy, skits, parodies, impressions and audience interaction. Topics discussed will be politics, ethnicity, prejudices, religion and being Proudly South African. The show takes place on April 30 at 15h00. Tickets R120 from Computicket.
