Letters of Recommendation
For Recreation Programs
"The Township of Plainsboro loves Bob Conrad and his shows.
We have enjoyed his entertainment for the past 10 years. We recently had "Magic and
Monsters" for our Halloween event Haunted Tonight. Over 600 people attended throughout the
night and Bob's Magic Show was one of the favorite activities of the children. You could hear
them laughing, ooooing and ahhing throughout the performance.
Bob is always a professional. He entertains with heart.
During the summer Bob does puppet shows at our summer camps. These shows vary from year
to year and are always a delight."

"On a lighter note, one of the most popular attractions of the day was the quick wit and
comedic timing of magician Bob Conrad. Young residents sat and watched the show intently as
older residents chuckled at his jokes. Although a misty rain began to fall, the audience still
sat to watch as Conrad began a ventriloquist act."

"Just a quick note of thanks and accolades for being a part of Shackamaxon Golf & Country
Club's annual Children's Halloween party. You were highly recommended to me by our
childrens's Camp Director, where you had performed this past summer. I was a little
concerned when our Halloween party grew to over 230 members, of which there were over 75
children - whether or not you would be able to keep their attention - I know you were very
successful with smaller groups.
My concerns were quickly dispelled once you began you "Magic & Monsters" program. You
captured the attention of the children and parents alike. In fact, I heard a comment from a
couple of fathers- "this guy is so good, we could have snuck out to play a few holes, and the
kids would never have known we were gone." The moms on the way out complimented my team
on having the best Halloween party in history- due largely in part to your show.
I look forward to having you return to Shackamaxon for our upcoming Children's Holiday Party
at the end of December."
Jerome D. Louie, General Manager, Shackamaxon Golf & Country Club, Scotch Plains, NJ
"We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done.. once again!!! The

Another great part of your entertainment package is the ease at which we can book your
appearance. Being available to us with answers to all our questions is a big help.
Hopefully the rest of your summer has been good for your business. We hope to see you next
year, so until then, keep up the good work."
