A funny colonoscopy story that is clean
Bob Stromberg may be an “aging” comic — his description –, but he’s still as sharp as they come. His particular talent is his ability to weave a magic spell of hilarity. Enjoy his funny colonoscopy story.
Bob draws his audiences into his stories, many of which are very personal, and holds them rapt with his soothing voice, his easygoing manner, his expressive face, and his offbeat methods of acting out his descriptions. And once he has his audience under his command, he punctuates his tales with a dazzling array of witty observations, skewed comments, and gut-busting one-liners. Enjoy the comedy of Bob Stromberg!
Take, for instance Bob Stromberg narrating the colonoscopy he received nearly a decade ago. In the process, he describes his doctor’s bedside manner, the cleansing process, and the hospital instruction sheet — all of it, of course, leading up to the big event. Now, if you’ve ever undergone a colonoscopy, chances are you didn’t exactly enjoy the experience, and you may not have related it to strangers for the sake of making them laugh. But that’s Bob’s great gift: to see what’s funny in potentially embarrassing and uncomfortable situations, to see how those episodes are part of the overall nuttiness of life, and to get others to see them that way, too.
Another important aspect of Bob’s persona is his gentlemanliness. He’s always clean, always very careful with his language. To be sure, his vignettes are colorful, unique, and fresh, but he’s never vulgar along the way. It’s easier for a comic to obtain cheap laughs by resorting to profanities than working clean. And for some comedians, the temptation to use crude references while telling a funny colonoscopy story would be too strong to resist. But ultimately, Bob’s way of working is more rewarding for audiences. Shock laughs are ultimately unsatisfying, but laughter from verbal dexterity and from the richness of shared human experience is laughter that resonates. People of all ages can enjoy Bob’s act together; as such, it can unite entire families in the same joy.
Bob hails from Pennsylvania, currently lives in Minnesota with his wife and is a three-decade veteran of the stage. He’s written three books and co-wrote the acclaimed play “Triple Espresso.” He’s starred in one-man shows, wowed the critics, and paid his dues: Yes, he opened for a number of heavy-metal bands in the late 1980s. Oh, and if ever you run into Bob, whether it’s after one of his shows or on the street somewhere, you might ask to see one of his shadow puppets.
