South Africa’s most famous puppet Chester Missing is heading to the Market Theatre as part of his national tour.
The controversial political analyst rose to fame as part of the satirical ‘Late Night News with Loyiso Gola’, on e-TV.
‘The Chester Missing Roadshow’ is directed by award-winning director Heinrich Reisenhofer, who has also helmed hits like Joe Barber.
Chester Missing has left the political elite quivering in their boots thanks to his hard hitting, funny and frank interviews with everyone from Gwede Mantashe, Zwelinzima Vavi, Helen Zille and Mosioua Lekota.
He is also a weekly columnist for the award winning news site www.zanews.co.za.
Unfortunately for Chester he is accompanied by his annoying ventriloquist Conrad Koch and Conrad’s puppet sidekicks Hilary, the outrageous diva Ostrich and Ronnie, the lunatic green monster. Together they guarantee a hilarious night out.
‘The Chester Missing Roadshow’ lands in Johannesburg on April 30 and runs until June 2.
* Tickets range from R80 to R160 and are available at Computicket.
