An act not to be missed. Conrad Koch, comedian and ventriloquist extraordinaire is live at Evita se Perron on Saturday 10th March.
What a treat is in store at Evita se Perron. An evening show on Saturday 10th March by the incomparable comedian Conrad Koch, aka the Puppet Guy, aka Chester Missing and more.
I was going to try to write an article from scratch, but that is a daft idea when there is so much fabulous material and comment about Conrad Koch available on the web, so here is a selection to whet your appetite. I’ll see you at the show, I am a total fan.
“Conrad is South Africa’s top comedy ventriloquist, and possibly the only one, and is a double International Emmy nominated comedian. His most famous puppet, Chester Missing, has won numerous awards in his own right, including being the first recipient of the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation’s Anti-Racism Award.
Chester Missing has interviewed most of South Africa’s political elite and has held a number of regular radio and TV slots, and even wrote an award-winning book. Conrad’s live shows have received wide political acclaim, and are a regular feature at arts and comedy festivals, including at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. The truth is, with a master’s degree in social anthropology, talking to puppets was his only career option.”
And some comments from reviews of his shows –
