Theatre Reviews

Writ­ten and per­formed by Con­rad Koch, this is a unique com­e­dy show that show­cas­es the art of ven­tril­o­quism. While Koch bills him­self as South Africa’s top ven­tril­o­quist, he also admits to being the only ven­tril­o­quist in South Africa. But his fame is not unde­served. He does a num­ber of fun ven­tril­o­quist sequences with var­i­ous well craft­ed pup­pets and ties these bits togeth­er using his own per­son­al tales. He def­i­nite­ly has a unique skillset and is good at it. The writ­ing is good, fun­ny and on the edge of the line, some­times touch­ing on issues of racism, pol­i­tics and sex. This is a goofy and fun show that keeps the audi­ence laugh­ing through­out. It’s worth see­ing but you’ll need to arrive ear­ly as it is in a small­er venue that eas­i­ly sells out.
