“While the majority of Bob’s career has been spent occupying the stage as a stand up comic, the truly unique gift he has is in presenting his delightfully amusing stories to audiences through the form of shadow puppetry. He takes one of the simplest (and probably oldest) idle pastimes (Shadow Puppets) and transforms it into something that can truly be considered art, even if you can’t post it on a canvas.” - American Entertainment Magazine

“The Gift of Happy” is an inspirational story told through the unique art of shadow puppetry and features current children and staff of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbus. The children helped create the shadow images used to tell the story of “Happy the Bear” and his journey toward self-acceptance. World-renowned shadow master Bob Stromberg played an integral role in bringing this project to life. He cheerfully taught the art of shadow puppets to the children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbus. Throughout the making of “The Gift of Happy,” the children transformed into master puppeteers and, more importantly, confident individuals.
