It all started when young Robert Strong visited Baltimore. A magician in the Amphitheater mesmerized him. At that moment Robert vowed to be the best magician ever. His parents considered therapy, but magic lessons were cheaper.
Robert continued training at Tannen's Magic School in New York and Towson University in Maryland. He then studied with touring stand-up comedians, Cirque du Soleil choreographers, Ringling Brothers circus clowns, Broadway directors, and world-class jugglers. Robert now shares his vast knowledge not only by captivating audiences around the world, but also by mentoring other variety artists and teaching corporate executives how to give engaging, compelling, and inspiring presentations.
Wherever Robert goes, he still carries with him that sense of wonder and passion for magic that he first experienced as a youngster in Baltimore, but now HE is the one doing the entertaining!
Performing professionally since 1985, Robert Strong knows how to read an audience and engage them with humor, wit, and charm. He learns about your company's product, culture, and clients and then creates a memorable, personalized, laugh-out-loud corporate event that runs smoothly.
