Bio

Conrad Koch is a South African comedy ventriloquist best known for his act with his "alter ego" Chester Missing, a "previously disadvantaged puppet and entrepreneur".

Koch is one of South Africa's most in demand comedy talents and the winner of the Entertainer of the Year award for 2010. He combines comedy with puppetry and has done so to local and international acclaim.

He has worked all over the world, been featured on local and international television and is a frequent guest at some of South Africa's biggest comedy events: The Smirnoff Comedy Festival, the Vodacom Comedy Festival, King Size Comedy, The 94.7 Heavyweight Comedy Jam, Blacks Only, SA London Comedy Festival, and more.

Conrad has an honours degree in anthropology with a master's degree in psychology,
with a special focus on communications. He has had extensive experience implementing culture change programmes for the likes of FNB, Goldfields, Sun International, SAA, and so forth.

His edu-taining talk, "Making Laughter Work" (on techniques to make the office a more pleasant, playful and productive environment), has received standing ovations around the country.

This fun-filled interactive talk focuses specifically on creating a client-focused culture, where diversity, customer-centricity and corporate citizenship are lived, rather than just spoken about.

He brought his Chester Missing act to the fourth season of the satirical news show Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola, in 2012.

He was the second ever host of the Comedy Central series Comedy Central Presents... Live at Parker's, also in 2012.
