In 2013, the Peru & Bala National Tour broke all attendance records in the country for South African Indian comedy. This year, it promises to be BIGGER and even BETTER … because it is going to be the Farewell Tour of the country’s favorite comic uncles, Peru & Bala!
After 16 years of record-breaking shows with the Uncles Peru & Bala, Vikash Mathura and Ray Maharaj (who play the Uncles) will be retiring from radio! Their joint decision will signify the end of the illustrious 22-year broadcasting career of Vikash Mathura, during which he has been consistently ranked as the Number 1 Radio Jockey on Lotus FM, as well as of Ray Maharaj’s 17-year radio career, during which he too has become a broadcasting institution.
During the past 16 years, Peru & Bala have performed to an estimated 3½ million fans in more than 400 concerts. They have produced 2 best-selling CDs; a best-selling book, and have a weekly cartoon series in KZN’s Post newspaper that has already gone viral around the world. Their Farewell Tour promises 2 hours of side-splitting sit-down comedy that will keep their fans in stitches. It will be an on-stage comedy riot!
