Reviews of #HeTwo: Evita Exposed! in Cape Town — August-September 2019
***** Evita is incomparable and so is PDU. They feed off each other. It’s thrilling
to see them heckle each other on stage. Don’t miss this extraordinary show by the
incomparable, legendary Pieter-Dirk Uys –- as himself and as he steps into the skins
of real and un-real figures. Do not miss.

Jy is vasgevang deur die gebeure op die verhoog en nie een keer kry jy die begeerte

Reviews of #HeTwo in Johannesburg — August 2019
Watching Uys at work gives you goosebumps. He is a master of the give and take of
political nuance, interjecting barbs so bright and sharp that you don’t see them
coming, with fierce and earth-shattering repartee that, rather than pulling punches,

Uys entertains with savvy satire, up-to-date observational humour, quick costume
changes and spot-on impressions, but if you laugh and then simply leave, you’ve missed
the point. #HeTwo clearly displays how far South Africa has moved forward during
Uys’ career, but it also illustrates how much work there still remains to do. Get

#HeTwo features the inimitable Pieter-Dirk Uys and his world famous alter-ego Evita
Bezudenhout sharing the stage. A great show and a wonderful tribute to one gutsy
Lady, created with masterly style. A class act.
