Almost News with Chester Missing

Genre: Comedy, Current Affairs, Talk Show

This satirical news show takes an irreverent look at the current affairs landscape and put high-profile politicians through their paces in interviews - with a puppet.

Chester Missing is, of course, delighted: "I have my own TV show. I'm a puppet. Have any of you realised how crazy this is? Someone tell Hlaudi. He broke ground for puppets everywhere."

The show was conceived as a build-up to the elections next year, and Chester (controlled by comedian Conrad Koch) will always have the last word: "You thought the elections were going to be serious? Ridiculous! Almost News with Chester Missing will solve that, comrades. We will bring you 24 minutes of 100% undiluted tjatjaragness, every single week."
