(Mervyn & Neville Pillay)

Buoyed by overwhelming demand, veteran entertainers and comedians Neville and Mervyn Pillay are back for an encore of their show Don’t Pillay With Us at Sibaya Casino and Entertainment Kingdom on June 16 and 17, 2017. The show was a sell-out success when it ran at the iZulu Theatre in Durban in April this year.

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 just laid-back humorous nature. He has performed extensively throughout KZN and is also getting offers 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 and 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 has performances on June 16 and 17 at 20h00. Tickets R120 booked through Computicket.
