Chester Missing is missing. Air France loses caustic puppet of Conrad Koch as well as Hilary the Ostrich.
Chester Missing has gone missing: Air France has lost the caustic bald-headed puppet of the South African comedian and ventriloquist Conrad Koch after he returned to South Africa following the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, Canada.
The usually inseparable Chester Missing and his handler who interview South African politicians on eNCA's (DStv 403) satirical late night news show Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola and occassionally toyi-toyi Woolworths, became a household name the past few years.
According to Conrad Koch, Air France lost both the Chester Missing puppet as well as Hilary the Ostrich.
At Just for Laughs, the world's largest international comedy event, Conrad Koch appeared with other South African comedians like Comedy Central's Trevor Noah and Jason Goliath.
"If I find out you have run away from me for another comedian I am gonna be pissed!" wrote Conrad Koch on Twitter.
"Go to hell Conrad," wrote Chester Missing on Twitter. I told you to buy me a seat on the plane".
