Bob Stromberg has been called “a mesmerizing physical comedian” by the Chicago Sun-Times.
In 2015, “That Wonder Boy” – written by Bob – won him the “Best One-Man Show” and two other awards at the prestigious United Solo Theatre Festival in New York.
He is a multi-talented man. Plus, his clean comedy is appropriate for all ages. But how did he come so far?
“Triple Espresso” and “That Wonder Boy”
“Triple Espresso … A Highly Caffeinated Comedy” is a vaudeville-style comedy that premiered in 1996. It was first put on a stage in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It holds the record for the longest continuously running show in San Diego.
This three-man show was written by Bob Stromberg, Bill Arnold, and Pearce Donley.
Bob was playing Bobby Bean, an irrepressible but not-too-sharp entertainer. The entire show was designed to make way for a series of clean-comedy sketches. By showcasing their talents, they were telling the story of how they got there.
“That Wonder Boy” is a one-man show written by Bob as well. It tells the story of growing up in the ’50s and ’60s.
The show received great reviews and after a few years and some tweaks, it became a “hit”.

The autobiographical show “That Wonder Boy”, written by Bob won three awards. He won the “Best One-Man Show” award. Risa Brainin, the director of the play, was honored as best director.
The play took home a third award as well – The Backstage Audience Award, which is an online poll sponsored by Backstage Magazine. What’s more interesting is that it was all possible thanks to Bob Stromberg’s fans.
