Bob Stromberg (Author/Bobby Bean) grew up in rural Pennsylvania playing in an accordion band and dreaming of stardom. The incongruity did not occur to him. Receiving an art degree from North Park College in Chicago, he continued his studies at Celebration Theatre in Maine with legendary mime Tony Montanaro. Then he began a career performing a unique blend of story, stand-up and shtick. Bob originated the character of Bobby Bean and played the part for Triple Espresso’s first ten years. He also created the one-man show, That Wonder Boy, which premiered in 2008 at the Music Box Theater in Minneapolis and later played Nelson Hall in Cheshire, CT, the Temple Theater in Des Moines, IA and the United Solo Theatre Festival in NYC, where it won top honors.
Bob lives in Minnesota with his wife Judy, and tours extensively as a featured comedian. Throughout his career, it has been his joy to advocate for impoverished children through the ministry of Compassion International.
