Bit of drag as Uys hits road again

IT was a comment from an ANC member that inspired Pieter Dirk Uys to write his new show, Desperate First Ladies.
“He told me to leave politicians alone and just do drag,” Uys laughed. “And I thought, ‘haai jinne, that is exactly what I will do’.”
The entertainer arrived in Port Elizabeth yesterday for his “Eastern Cape tour”.
“I last did this road trip, tour thing in the 1980s. Only thing is, now I have a BlackBerry which keeps on making a noise.
But it is really wonderful too, because if you hear about a problem when you pass Swellendam you can have it sorted out before you reach Mossel Bay.”
Uys said his alter ego, Tannie Evita, would publish a journal later this year, called Tannie Evita se Swartbessie.
