Chester Missing talks Parly shenanigans and new comedy show, Puppet Guy

The world's most revolutionary puppet, Chester Missing and his side-kick Conrad Koch have a new show at the Baxter Theatre, featuring new friends.

Koch says that the two-day show is a refreshing move away from purely political commentary, and goes back to his roots of funny slapstick ventriloquism.

I turn a guy into a lion. I've got an ostrich I've made out of feather dusters. Because Chester keeps going missing - it's a real thing.

Conrad Koch, ventriloquist

He explains that he has introduced new material into his routine and will use audience participation, international humour and crazy props and puppets.

The duo couldn't resist mocking Members of Parliament (MPs) following ruckus in the National Assembly for President Jacob Zuma's Q and A session.

Chester likened MPs to cackling animals and had no sympathy for Zuma, who was labelled a criminal and thief.

They were meowing at each other. The DA was barking at the ANC. It was literally animal farm in there. It was insane.
