Conrad is South Africa’s top comedy ventriloquist and a double International Emmy nominated comedian. His most famous puppet, Chester Missing, has won numerous awards in his own right, and is famous for political analysis and interviewing actual politicians. He’s also the only puppet in history to win a court case. No, really. Conrad headlines at comedy clubs around the world and has appeared at most of South Africa’s biggest comedy events, and international festivals such as at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and the Montreux Comedy Festival in Switzerland. Fun characters, innovative puppets and hilarious audience interaction, layered with sharp social commentary make his shows very unique. His theatre shows sell out and gets repeated 5 star reviews. The truth is, with a master’s degree in social anthropology, talking to puppets was his only career option.
