“A fascinating, scary and funny tale from way beyond our normal confines. Prepare to be transported” Evening Standard
“A bloke stands on a bare stage telling us about a holiday he took in Chile more than 20 years ago. It sounds like the definition of dullness, but an hour and 20 minutes later you are yearning for more” The Guardian
Peter Searles - Hey Gringo! A Very Chile Christmas is brought to you by
As an out-of-work actor in the 80s, a fed-up and bored 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.
For the past eight years, Searles has toured his internationally-acclaimed trilogy of one-man shows about his extraordinary South American odyssey throughout the UK, the US, Europe, Far East, Ireland and Bermuda.
Sell-out successes include the Royal National Theatre, Soho Theatre, Royal Exchange Manchester, Cheltenham Literature and the Chichester and Bermuda Festivals.
Described by the Evening Standard as "a great stand-up storyteller," and a "wonderful, talented comedian," by The Scotsman, critics have also referred to him as "a mixture between Billy Connelly and a Radio 4 travel show presenter."
