With repeated five-star reviews in tow, Conrad Koch & Chester Missing and
their fellow entourage of loyal puppets have found their way back home after
a whirlwind tour of venues and international festivals in Canada and
Australia and will be returning, by popular demand, for another season of
Puppet Guy at the Pieter Toerien Studio Theatre at Montecasino from 27 March
to 14 ApriL. In his most recent show offering, Puppet Guy, Conrad Koch goes back to the
lighter side of comedy ventriloquism.

“Our style of comedy has always relied heavily on social and political
commentary – Chester Missing even got his own weekly satirical TV news show
because of it – but with Puppet Guy, I wanted to explore having fun with
ventriloquism. We still keep it relevant and topical, but it is a good
change of pace. Chester is still up to his shenanigans and hilariously
talks about the world and South African politics, there’s an outrageous
ostrich puppet that has been made out of an slipper and feather dusters; a
mosquito and a DJ puppet made out of a hoodie and sunglasses,” comments Koch
on what people can expect from the show.
Puppet Guy is all about the 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
show is also highly interactive.

Conrad adds: “The audience participation is a crowd favourite, for example,
I use Snapchat and a project to make someone in the audience a digital
puppet and I use a special ventriloquism mask to turn an audience member
into a hungry lion – voices and hunting skills included.”

The show is directed by Chris Weare and carries a PG-13 age restriction.
Combining great off-the-wall comedy and silly satire, a Donald Trump joke or
two and a unique take on ventriloquism makes Puppet Guy a must-see. Tickets
start from R130 and are available through Computicket. The shows run
Thursdays to Sundays (Thursday, Friday, Saturday 8PM shows; Saturday 4PM
show and Sunday 3PM show).
