As an out-of-work actor in the 80s, a fed-up and bored Peter Searles decided one day to pack up his bags and buy a ticket to South America, with a travel budget of $5 a day.

What ensues is a prolonged period of madness, seen through the good-humoured eyes of Searles and now laid out in a great stand up comedy show entitled, Hey Gringo!

From his arrival in Caracas, Peru, minus his luggage, to the unexplored Amazon, through dodgy South American prisons and the snow-capped peaks of the Andes, Searles presents an amusing take on his experiences.

Along the way he provides a catalogue of close scrapes and surprise encounters with drug-smugglers, Dutch air hostesses, Carmelite monks, Maoist guerillas, Mancunian ornithologists, Amazonian Indians and a French shaman - not to mention the crocodiles, jaguars and giant centipedes.

“Proves Searles' credentials as a great stand-up storyteller… it’s a fascinating, scary and funny tale from way beyond our normal confines. Prepare to be transported”

Evening Standard

“A seemingly endless pot of fascinating stories, always well-told, make for a spellbinding evening.”

“A bloke stands on a bare stage telling us about a holiday he took in Chile more than 15 years ago. It sounds like the definition of dullness, but an hour and 20 minutes later you are yearning for more.”
