Amazing Entertainment Program From Shadow Man
Bob Stromberg is funny. That’s the long and short of it. He talks about the things that could have happened in anyone’s childhood and makes us go back so well that we feel like we’re right there, watching it happen again. Even the moments in his entertainment program that were decidedly not funny at the time seem hilarious when he recounts it. He also does these incredible shadow puppet performances, which he sets to music. They are so mesmerizing; you have to see them to believe it. He has performed his shadow puppet act in almost 2500 shows and his stand up for over 30 years. To say Bob Stromberg is a seasoned professional is an understatement.
Bob’s comfortable style makes you feel instantly at home. His jokes are good-natured yet poignant. His characters come alive. Stromberg is one of those performers that you feel like you’ve known all your life.
Bob Stromberg does a one-man show called Mr. Wonderboy. It ties all of his idiosyncrasies together into one neat entertainment program. His uncanny ability to make you see yourself in his performances – to literally feel as if he is narrating our life rather than telling a joke – is the mark of true talent. He adds physical expression to his storytelling, draws his audience in where he holds them until he’s done. Much has been made of Stromberg’s ability to contort and physically express himself in his comedy. You never want to take your eyes off him.
Bob Stromberg makes the sometimes unpopular choice of giving a clean entertainment program. His show is suitable in a corporate setting, church function, or open activity where parents bring their children. His shadow puppets are a hoot for everyone who sees them. His ability to capture the essence of the song and add it into his ingenious “shadow puppetry” is incredible. You’ll find yourself watching with your mouth open, in awe.
And that’s the way it should be.
Bob Stromberg is someone to look into if you are considering booking talent for a non profit fundraiser, corporate, or Gala. Bob Stromberg is the real deal. His entertainment program won’t disappoint.
