Comedian, author, actor and activist Pieter-Dirk Uys reveals the person behind the persona in a form of his new biography, ‘The Echo of a Noise/Weerklank van a Wanklank’. In a chat with Gareth, he recalls his childhood and family, his forbidding and musically driven father, his brilliant but disturbed mother, his sister the child prodigy, and Sannie Abader – the family helper he regards as a second mother.
