Puppet Guy

Puppet mayhem comes to Montecasino…

Conrad Koch and Chester Missing Ventriloquist: A person, especially an entertainer, who can make their voice appear to come from somewhere else, typically a dummy of a person or animal. What would Conrad Koch and Chester Missing talk about if they didn’t constantly discuss politics and race?

In his latest show offering, Puppet Guy, Conrad Koch – the man often mistakenly called ‘Chester’ – goes back to the lighter side of comedy ventriloquism. The show, brought to you in association with Comedy Central Africa, takes place for the first time in Johannesburg at the Pieter Toerien Studio Theatre at Montecasino from 25 April to 27 May 2018, after a Cape Town run from 3 to 14 April.

Billed as Koch’s most fun show to date, Puppet Guy is all about hilarious characters, funny observations and world-class entertainment. It showcases the man behind the puppets other than just being political bad-boy, Chester Missing’s ‘backing guy’.

The comedy ensemble includes outrageous puppet characters like Hilton – a dancing ostrich made from feather dusters and a slipper; DJ Hoodie, a DJ made from sunglasses and a hoodie, as well as some other surprising new characters, and of course, Chester Missing brings his shenanigans to the stage too. The show is directed by Chris Weare, and is highly interactive.

Great off-the-wall comedy combined with silly satire, a Donald Trump joke or two and a completely unique take on ventriloquism makes Puppet Guy a must-see. The show has also been accepted into the Regina and Winnipeg Comedy Fringe Festival in Canada later this year.
