TOP South African ventriloquist and award-winning performer Conrad Koch is back, along with his famous puppet comrade, Chester Missing. Koch is set to perform in Port Elizabeth on Friday and Saturday. The much anticipated Puppet Guy is billed as Koch’s most fun show to date, with a roller-coaster ride of outrageous puppet characters and off-the-wall comedy ventriloquism. It’s seen as a change of pace from Koch’s previously highly political work on stage – focusing on hilarious characters, funny observations and world-class entertainment.It’s comedy mayhem as Chester Missing and Koch playfully battle each other. Koch will also feature two other puppets, namely Hilton – the dancing ostrich - and DJ Hoodie. He introduces a brand-new character described as “Africa’s most dangerous animal” – a vegetarian mosquito. “The show is highly interactive. I use a cellphone, Snapchat and a projector to turn people in the crowd into digital puppets, hilariously teaching everyone how ventriloquism works. “Using ventriloquism masks, I find a member of the audience who actually thinks they’re a lion, voices and hunting skills included,” shares Koch.
