For more than 30 years Bob Conrad has provided schools and
libraries with entertaining educational programs and is one of the
most successful school assembly presenters and motivational
speakers in America today.  Considered an expert on the field of
children's entertainment , he has been a regular columnist in the
entertainer's magazines  Laugh Makers since it began publication
in 1983, and  Funny Paper since 2000, and is a much sought after
lecturer on the subject.   Bob Conrad is the author/ illustrator of
several educational books for children including; "Bob Conrad's
Rainforest Animals", "Bob Conrad's Deep Sea Adventure" and "Bob
Conrad's Great Americans
". He has also written several books for
the entertainment field including;  "The Puppetry Workshop
Manual", " Mouth Puppets" and "Conrad's Chalk-Talk Cartoons".
He wrote the chapter on puppetry in" The Birthday Party Business"
(Picadilly Books).

A  former music instructor, Conrad combines his teaching abilities
with his talents of puppetry, ventriloquism, magic, music, acting and
cartoon drawing to provide schools with programs that are at once
interesting, educational, and entertaining. A craftsman , he builds
his own puppets and props, researches and writes his programs.

The father of 15 children, nine boys and six girls - Bob truly
understands children and knows how to reach them.  His love for
children shows in every performance.

Bob Conrad has been performing his entire life. At age 12, he was
performing with the USO at Army bases.  At 17 he was a regular on
the WABD-TV program Star Time, along with Connie Frances and
Joe Pesci.  He studied and worked with internationally famous
puppeteer Bil Baird.  He has been performing in schools and
libraries for more than 30 years, and performs more than 300 times
each year.  I don't think there is anyone in the field of school
assemblies with more experience than Bob Conrad.
