Profile Information

East Rutherford, NJ
Relationship to Puppetry
Full time entertainer using puppets, magic and ventriloquism in presenting educational programs to schools and libraries.
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
Watching early television, when there was a lot of great puppeteers on TV. Burr Tillstrum, Paul Ashley, Hope & Morey Bunin, Bil Baird. I grew up watching the best puppeteers perform in my living room. Started making puppets at age seven and never stopped.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
My main influence had to be Bil Baird, I watched everything he did on TV, and latter attended his theater in New York City. Had the opportunity to study with him and worked briefly in his shop.
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
I never wanted to be a puppet, always a puppeteer.
More About Me:
I have built several hundred puppets out of just about every material possible and have been performing with them my whole life.
My Company/Troupe/Group
Conrad Productions is a one man operation that provides educational programs to schools and libraries. Most of my programs have puppets and ventriloquism in them. I have been doing school shows full time for over 30 years.
Affiliations/Professional Organizations
I belong to the P of A. I used to belong to the Garden State Puppetry Guild when it existed. I belong to the World Clown Association and The Society of American Magicians.

Bob...  H.A.P.P.Y. B.I.R.T.H.D.A.Y and many more.  In light of the your age comment the other day, I figured I'd yell it very slow to make sure you got it.  Many many returns.

Thank you gentlemen I am flattered , They say you are only as old as you feel, and I still feel and act like a kid, so why change.

Rod Stewarts "Forever Young" comes to mind but even that songs dates me.  We can't win.
