I have been performing Comedy Magic since 1985 and have done it all. The list is long and includes birthday parties, school shows, street performing, comedy clubs, malls, festivals, theaters, performing arts centers, Bar Mitzvahs, graduations, Holiday Parties, First Nights, colleges, universities, international tours, Las Vegas review shows, cruise ships, corporate shows, trade shows, sales seminars, product launches, retreats, hospitality suites, commercials, TV, film, and much more. I have collected some amazing reference letters/emails newspaper/magazine articles, and more recently, I have been getting some great reviews online. I will post the former on a future blog, but for now, here are my current Yelp, Yahoo, Google, and LinkedIn reviews:
Ann S: Loved watching Robert Strong perform–he brought such fun to a recent 70th birthday party event. All ages responded to his humor and ability to engage guests. I would recommend him in a minute.
Tyree J: Robert’s act works for all audiences. Yet he stands out not just because he’s funny, clever, and personable but that ┬áhe’s a professional entertainer who keeps his commitments. May 14th Robert helped set up the TED talks at Stanford in the morning, rushed over to Alameda to give 45 minute performance on the USS Hornet for th District 57 Toastmasters conference at 2 PM . Then he headed back to Stanford to close out the TED talks. As a general policy Toastmasters offers little if any compensation ┬áto anyone presenting at their conferences. I appreciate Robert sharing his tips on humor and encouragement to a novice such as myself. He is thoughtful and easy to work with, which btw is not always the norm in his business. No doubt he’s a five star recommendation!
Eric C: Mr. Strong puts on one helluva fun show. He’s charming, funny, goofy, and quite the talented magician. I’ve seen Mr. Strong perform a few times and each time he gets the audience involved and laughing. Everyone has a wonderful time watching Mr. Strong do his magic. I believe he’d be a great addition to any celebration or corporate event. We’re going to book him for our next gig!
Igor G: Great personality, will make you laugh and feel good inside and outside. Will make your watch disappear too.
David S: What, you can’t rate Six Stars? This is a travesty. Robert Strong is hysterical, and has some of the most creative tricks I’ve seen from a magicians. I have seen him perform multiple times, had him on one of my shows. He’s always a huge hit. My cousins saw him in DC and couldn’t stop talking about him. He works a room unbelievably well and he’s great at getting the audience involved in his tricks. He’s also a great dancer. But he won’t let me lead.
Nathan D: Robert is funny, versatile and always puts on a high-energy show. He is professional and easy to work with. He put on a great intermission show at a regular party that I run, and left the audience mystified and begging for more. I’ve also had the pleasure of being an unwitting assistant in one of his tricks…haha, it was so much fun
Jessica K: I’ve known and seen Robert Strong perform ever since he was a teenager and I can tell you that he is hilarious, professional, and a brilliant magician. He is also a great guy and super nice to work with. He is extremely talented and is doing what he was born to do. He’s a must hire for any event!
Craig H: Robert Rocks! Each time I see him he amazes and delights. His rapport with audiences, witty repartee, humor and timing are just ducky! he’s a pro whom I highly recommend for audiences of all ages and educational levels. The consummate professional, he can handle any stage set-up, room dynamics or other challenges that constrain lesser talents. Dude has chops!!!
Patricio T: I saw Robert perform at a company event and was very impressed by his abilities and professionalism. His show blends jokes and magic tricks and is both hilarious and amusing. Great entertainment! He lives up to the title of ‘The Comedy Magician’. I would definitely see his show again.
Mark C: My company hired Robert for several trade shows and events around the world, and he delivered an excellent performance every time. He really took the time on the front end to learn how to connect his magic and comedy to match the material we wanted to communicate, and then delivered it very well.
Alex L: Among his many talents, excellent improviser. It enables Robert ┬áto handle a wide variety of audiences and situations with even greater grace and confidence.
Talia S: WOW! Robert is a hilarious and brilliant entertainer. ┬áHe is hands down the best magician I have ever seen. I highly recommend going to one of his shows or hiring him if you are looking for a most memorable event.
David M: I have to say that Mr. Strong is one of the most talented and entertaining people I have ever seen. ┬áHis act, which he taylors to each audience, is both hilarious and mind-bending! I’d also add that he is not only a pleasure to watch, but to work with if you are doing the booking for the show. ┬áI fully recommend him to any individual or organization who wants to create a very unique and memorable event.
Kelly M: My kids love Robert Strong! He is a funny funny funny magician. I have seen him being super silly at The Buddy Club and I have seen him do the corporate speak thing at a trade show at the Moscone center. He can do it all! I highly recommend him.
Mike K: I have seen Robert Strong perform with both children and adults. ┬áHe is very creative. He leaves the audience talking about him and he generates many laughs because he really involves the audiences in his shows. I certainly recommend him for either adults or children.
Rachel M: Few people have a strong stage presence and are also good entertainers. ┬áRobert Strong has both. ┬áIt’s a hard combination to find, but he brings it together and creates a fabulous show. ┬áIt doesn’t hurt that Robert’s a pretty funny guy, too!
Christine P: Our audience was thrilled with Robert Strong’s performance this Saturday. ┬áIt was a sophisticated, intelligent crowd, on the technical side, but Robert had them warmed up and laughing very fast and kept up an excellent show of just the right length. ┬áI still do not understand how he did his tricks; they were amazing. ┬áI believe he could entertain just about any audience. ┬áHighly recommended!
Janet G: Robert Strong is, to cut to the chase, fabulous. He was recently an emcee at a rather formal event and brought such fun and snap to the whole evening. His magic tricks are just that: magic. And then some. He flew through various disappearances and metamorphoses, and no matter how hard I stared at every maneuver I was stumped as to how he did it all. He was spellbinding, and even the man whose tie Robert cut in half was laughing. I suppose he knew Robert could restore it.
Jacqueline V: I was the Chair of our school’s annual Market/Fair Day and we had Robert Strong performing at our event. ┬áHe gave a terrific performance, our crowd loved him so that people were saying he was the highlight of the day. ┬áBoth adults and children were equally engaged, laughing and very amused. ┬áOn top of it, he was professional, really friendly and easy to work with. ┬áWe definitely will use him again next year.
Ari S: Robert performed at a kids birthday party i attended and it was great. he had the adults and the kids both in stitches. Strong magic and strong comedy.
Katy D: Robert is not only funny but he has a great mind for business and an array of dancing steps. I would strongly recommend him for any event.
Steven B: Fantastic show. ┬áI left wondering whether he should be considered a very funny magician or a very magical comedian.
Juliana G: Robert is a pro. I’ve seen him entertain little kids without losing their attention for a minute, astonish adult audiences, and do impromptu tricks at dinner parties that baffled guests are still talking about. He can put on a major live show for an audience of thousands, engage passers-by at trade shows, perform comfortably and naturally in front of a camera, and do sleight of hand tricks right under your nose that you will not be able to figure out no matter how hard you stare. (I’ve tried.) Robert’s also a dependable, punctual, and thoroughly professional business person.
Dana D: I’ve seen Robert Strong perform at several fundraisers and private events. ┬áHe has an incredible stage presence that totally engages his audience. ┬áHis blend of humour and magic is truly unique as he’s able to be masterful at both. ┬áI guarantee, everyone will leave with a smile!
Yezdi L: I’ve seen Robert perform magic and he is very good; not only does he perform tricks that are quite amazing but he also has a great sense of humor and makes the entire show funny, engaging and very interesting. He truly enjoys performing and interacting with an audience. Highly recommended.
Angie M: I have seen Robert perform at several events and always enjoyed it very much. ┬áEach time he varied his show to fit the audience. ┬áI think Robert’s blend of humor, stage presence and his fabulous magic tricks will delight all ages! ┬áI hope to see him again soon!
Shawna P: There’s a reason Robert Strong has been voted San Francisco’s Best Comedy Magician several years running now. Regardless of the crowd size or type, he is always prepared, and ready to incite laughter! More than that, Robert is a true entertainer in every sense of the word – dancing, magic shows, good clean comedy, party tricks, Robert does it all, and with style. 5 Stars all the way!
Joshua H: Robert Strong is truly a strong character! ┬áI’ve worked as a cinematographer and editor with Robert on several corporate and private projects and have been thrilled with our results. ┬áRobert is dynamic in his delivery, captivating in his craft, and absolutely professional in his off-camera/stage demeanor. ┬áFrom the perspective of a producer, he brings confidence and poise to the screen and can nail his performance when there’s only time for one take. ┬áJust let the camera roll with Robert, and you’re bound to be astounded.
Mosa L: Funny. ┬áSmart. ┬áAttentive. ┬áRobert knows how to get the whole audience involved. ┬áHe seems to effortlessly communicate with everyone present and then blow their minds with his top notch magic.
Mo K: One of those naturally gifted entertainers who can absolutely transfix kids in the audience while keeping their parents in stitches. My 12-yr-old son and I caught Robert’s act at the Academy of Science recently. After Robert’s first show, I asked my son if he wanted to walk around and look at the exhibits. He said no way. He wanted to catch Robert’s show again. Amazing tricks and funny too!
Acqua M: Robert is just amazing, in a nut shell “amazing magician and person”. I first met him in my b’day party some years ago. One of my best friends brought him and introduced him to me as the best magician in the bay area. I thought he was just kidding or bluffing to bring someone else to my party. At one point Robert ask, can i do some tricks for your friends, and i said yes! OMG! that was unbelievable he had a full audience of sf professionals sitting in my living room as kids. He did amazing tricks that we are still wondering how, and despite me good eyes to uncover the tricks i couldn’t figure out how he did them! years later, I saw him hosting “Comedy Talks” with legends of the comedy world and he was funny, very entertaining and again, opened the show with a fantastic trick that set up the audience for the remaining of the show!
Aubrey G: The first time I saw Robert Strong perform, I was in awe– not only was he a really incredible magician, but he was FUNNY! He has a great sense of the audience and is able to cater to a wide variety of people, able to push boundaries just the right amount and to achieve entertainment perfection with his balance of tricks and jokes. The whole audience stays enthralled. I have seen a few different shows and they have each left me laughing, smiling, and wanting more. Definitely the best out there!!!
Lala R: Who said magic shows were just for kids? I have seen Robert do shows for adults or for kids, for larger or small groups. Every show is different and targeted to a specific audience. You will be surprised how many jokes about your specific company and your specific audience he has. All of them super-funny! Expect to laugh from the beginning till the end. The magic is… well, magic! Unique and amazing! ┬áMake sure to check out a promo video on his web site to see for yourself.
James K: Let me tell you that I have never experienced a show as the one I have seen with Robert Strong. This guy is phenomenal. I was just 6-feet away while he performed the feats of magic and I was totally blown away. You have to see him perform live to get the full “entertainment value” of his extraordinary performance. And Robert Strong is a motivational teacher and an accomplished photographer. Performance art just doesn’t get any better than this. Remember Robert Strong the Bay Area’s Best magician!
RS: Robert Strong turns an event into a party! ┬á A good party, the kind where people say, ‘Well, THAT was fun! Where’d they find that magician guy?”
Cortneay R: Robert is an amazingly talented musician and performer. I have seen him 3 times and I don’t know how he does it. His magic tricks are truly magic plus he is hysterical.

Mike T: Great sense of humor. Easy to talk to and very approachable. His show will dazzle you. You should book him!
Bob G: Robert is VERY funny and easy to work with. He is a true professional and I am sure he is going to go far. Be sure to catch his show if you get the chance, you won’t regret it. I hired him for my house party and he went well beyond the call of duty. I will definitely hire him again.
Sarah M: I’ve hired Robert for a few shows, and he is always on time, very professional, easy to work with and happy to be there.
SA: We have had him at our fundraiser birthday event at City Team Ministries homeless shelter for 2 years and he is coming again next year! ┬áHe is a HIT with our audience! ┬áEveryone was laughing so hard and amazed by his magic! ┬áIt didn’t matter where they were from (we’ve had guests from all over the world!)
Freddiesf: He was our trade show magician and he did a fantastic job bringing in large audiences. I look forward to working with him again.
Dana: I had a trade show booth at the Moscone Center in San Francisco and I called Robert Strong the day before the show. Thank goodness he was available. Because of his professionalism and amazing magic, my company has gotten hundreds more leads than we have ever gotten. We will continue to hire him for every show he is available for.
3f8fc: Robert can entertain the crowds large and small, all adults and kids, all techies and all dancers. I have seen a number of shows and it has been invariable 5-star. If you have a corporate event and are looking for entertainment, look no further!
Mo K: Robert recently performed on short-notice at an event I held in San Francisco. Never have I seen a magician/entertainer blow and audience’s mind and be so hilarious! He put on an incredible show, totally bringing up the energy level in the room.
Sandra: Robert is one of the most amazing magicians I have ever seen. His tricks blow me away, and even when they are done just inches from me, I can not figure them out at all. Not to mention he is hilarious, charismatic, and a total crowd pleaser. He has the magic touch for sure
James: OMG Robert Strong the Comedy Magician is the absolute best! I saw him perform and he was amazing! And he was very funny. I really enjoyed Robert Strong’s performance.
Ernesto: This guy is the real deal! funny comedian (two features that on their own are quite entertaining) that can keep a large crowd of 300 people or a small one of just 5 people without blinking for even a second. I have seen him perform card tricks,magic, illusions while he is telling something hilarious that keeps the crowd astonished from kids to elders! i am sure if he is left in the jungle among a den of lions he will have them all cracking up while he keeps the pack of wolves attentive to his tricks! Amazing!!!
InMyHead: Great show. I couldn’t decide if he was a very funny magician or a very magical comedian.
Julia: Robert Strong knows how to keep a crowd entertained. With his baffling magic tricks, skillful juggling, and funny jokes, he’s THE guy for any event from corporate gigs to trade shows to kids’ birthday parties. He’s dependable, professional, and has that certain comfortable quality that draws people in and puts them at ease. I thoroughly recommend him if you’re considering hiring entertainment for your event.
SP1: He is a Master Magician! I saw him in San Francisco and he did some impossible mind reading. Very entertaining! I have no idea how he knew the name of my wife’s first pet, amazing! He also made money appear from no where, did something cool things with numbers, and made a real bowling ball appear from an art pad. I was in the front row and was trying to figure it all out. It is probably better that I didn’t, it was more fun to be fooled…
d0ef0: The first time I saw Robert Strong perform, I was in awe– not only was he a really incredible magician, but he was FUNNY! He has a great sense of the audience and is able to cater to a wide variety of people, able to push boundaries just the right amount and to achieve entertainment perfection with his balance of tricks and jokes. The whole audience stays enthralled. I have seen a few different shows and they have each left me laughing, smiling, and wanting more. Definitely the best out there!!!
Yahoo User: In a world that needs more magic it is good to know that Robert Strong is wonderful. As emcee he brings such fun and snap to any evening with magic and his ongoing narrative. With his sunny side up at all times, he keeps audiences jubilant. His magic tricks are just that: magic. And then some. He flies through various disappearances and metamorphoses, and no matter how hard I stare at every maneuver I am always stumped as to how he did it. He is spellbinding, and even the man whose tie Robert once cut in half was laughing. I suppose he knew Robert could restore it. Robert keeps the mystery in magic.
Gideon: Robert Strong is by far the funniest, most entertaining performer I have ever seen. His shows are excellent. His technical brilliance in magic blends perfectly with his knack for saying a great joke at any time. Highly recommended!
Lala: Who said magic shows were just for kids? I have seen Robert do shows for adults or for kids, for larger or small groups. Every show is different and targeted to a specific audience. You will be surprised how many jokes about your specific company and your specific audience he has. All of them super-funny! Expect to laugh from the beginning till the end. The magic is… well, magic! Unique and amazing!
Yahoo User2: High quality magic found locally…: I saw the magician Robert Strong in San Francisco at a trade show last week. He was just what we needed. We expected mediocre business blah blah, but instead we got very entertaining illusions that were professional, dialogue that kept us laughing, and in the end, he really made us think. I could definately see the show again and get something new from it…
Yahoo User3: About Robert Strong, then and now: I have been following the magic of Robert Strong for years, including his previous stage name (which may or may not be a blackmailable secret). He is the best, and I have travelled considerable distances to laugh with him. He is thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining, and delightful. My two children appreciate him as much as I do, and we very very rarely enjoy the same things (they are teenage girls).
Yahoo User4: Really, Really Funny!: I saw Mr. Strong perform in several different places (he really gets around!), and each time he was absolutely hysterical. He’s got a little bit of everything–juggling, magic, balancing, danger, and lots of humor. Very professional and personable on stage!
Publicity Guru: Great personality!: Have seen Robert perform several times and always has a great new repertoire… definitely recommend!
Las: THIS MAGICIAN IS GREAT AND FUNNY !: I’ve seen Robert Strong perform twice. Once with children and once with an adult audience. This guy can adapt to any audience, age, and location and be entertaining. He was funny and the magic was great. Not the boring “pull the rabbit out of my hat” I was expecting. My kids loved him and I couldn’t stop laughing at the adult show when Robert pick pocketed peoples’ wallets and watches and gave them back to the owners as prizes. He really let the crowd participate!
Sam: Audience member: Have seen Robert’s shows a number of times, and every time is engaging, different, and of course, highly entertaining. This is obviously what Robert was made for!

WBS: Best magic/comedy in SF!: I had the pleasure to book Robert for my company’s corporate event while he was living in Baltimore. Then, I was so happy to find that he was now living and working in SF! I was able to book him for my annual sales conference. Normally, these things are quite boring, but Robert’s performance was the highlight of the whole conference (even more than my keynote)! I’ll give him the best review I can give any entertainer, because I have never worked with one so talented, professional, flexible, and just downright fun, in my years of attending and/or planning these events. Bravo, Robert, bravo!
Magda: Laughed til it hurt!: I have been fortunate to see this guy three times and each time his show was unique and more funny than the previous! The best part is he engages the audience rather than making fun of them.

Yahoo User8: Robert Strong is AWESOME!: I have seen Robert Strong perform on a couple of occassions in the Bay Area. Once on Pier 39 and again at The Buddy Club for children. He is equally entertaining and hysterical for adults and children. It’s the most fun you can have in an hour with juggling, magic, and comedy. With his quick wit and comebacks, hecklers beware.
Yahoo User9: Charming: Robert Strong is more than a comedy magician- he is an entertainer. His show is clever and fast paced. He involves the audience and uses his inate charm and light hearted wit to capture and delight. I highly recommend this clean-cut up-beat act to work his “magic” on your guests.

It seems that each time we attend one of his shows he has escalated his performance to a new and higher level. He must constantly search for new ways to dazzle, baffle and amaze and . . . he succeeds! Robert is worth every dollar charged for his act. I recommend him most highly to anyone with likes to laugh and be amazed.
Joe: Best show we’ve seen in years.: Wow, I’ve seen hundreds of entertainers from cruise ships to college campuses to corporate boardrooms but our family really got lucky when we caught Robert Strong’s show during his US East Coast tour last year. If you have the opportunity to see this show┬ůtake it, it’s amazing!!! You won’t be disappointed.

If you need to hire a magician, I highly recommend Robert Strong The San Francisco Magician!
MK: I’ve seen Robert perform both for kids at a science museum and for adults in a bar. I’m amazed how the same entertainer can be so “right” for two totally different audiences. Two words come to mind: hilarious (his jokes) and mind-blowing (his magic tricks). Definitely one of the Bay Area’s best!
Jim: Everyone should see Robert Strong perform. Robert Strong is truly stupendous. Robert Strong is by far the greatest and most accomplished magician I have ever beheld. You have to see him perform live to get the full ÔÇťentertainment valueÔÇŁ of his extraordinary performance. Remember Robert Strong the Bay Area’s Best Comedian Magician!

PEK: He has a great sense of humor, does amazing tricks, very very friendly and puts an amazing ambiance everywhere he goes!

Janet: Robert Strong brought his comedy magic to a significant fund-raiser banquet in which I was involved, and the results were exceptional. This rather formal annual dinner had never had a comedy magician as emcee, and emcee is just one of Robert’s strengths. He brought a new energy to a recurring event. He is welcoming, personable and generous, not just as the main performer, but treating the pre-dinner crowd with magic tricks during cocktails. Robert manages to combine witty banter with feats of magic that you would think would take all his attention. He brings an energy and good cheer to any group. He is a very polished performer who is having some very contagious fun at what he does. When an event needs a new twinkle, Robert is the answer.
Laren: Robert and I have “played” together quite a bit doing improv. I always enjoy my time with Robert, and on the delightful instances when I have had the honor to be in a workshop led by Robert, I have always learned a great deal. He is a patient and insightful teacher. He is also wonderful at making all the participants feel comfortable and ready to learn.
Zeff: Robert performed at an event I held in San Francisco. He was totally professional, on time and prepared. He asked me several questions about the nature of the audience and the event, tailoring his act as appropriate. The act itself was incredible. (How the heck did he guess the name of that woman’s first boyfriend?) He is also very very funny. I also caught a show he gave for kids at the Academy of Science and was struck by how good he is at catering his tricks and humor to the audience. If you’re the Bay Area and he’s performing, definitely catch him!
Keys: Hello my name is James Keys and I had my 48 birthday party and fundraiser at a dear friendÔÇÖs apartment. Magician extraordinary Robert Strong performed at this event and brought the house down. Each and every person at the event was thrilled. Never had anyone of us been so close up to the entertainer and be bewildered and amused by the performance. Robert Strong is by far the greatest and most accomplished magician I have ever beheld. And he performed for my birthday so that was a HUGE reason why this guy is the very best.
Spike: Robert Strong is a shining star-people enjoy his performances! He is the best-easy to work with, reliable and genuinely talented. I hold him in the utmost regard!
Gallin: Where do I start? As a graphic designer, I’ve worked with Robert on a number of print and web projects and have found him to be an inventive, clear-thinking client who has a strong vision and communicates it well. We’ve also worked together as business partners, and it was a pleasure. Robert is extremely creative, smart, tireless, talented, and thoroughly dependable. Lastly, I’ve seen him perform his comedy magic shows many times and am always entertainedÔÇöas well as completely confounded by his work (sleight of hand, card tricks, prop tricks, math tricks, you name it). I’ve seen him wow audiences of all ages. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who needs an entertainer to bring cheer and energy to an event and effortlessly engage large groups of people.
Dinoia: Robert is a warm, fun-filled individual always trying to live the most out of life. His improvclassis sure to be loads of fun.
Sorry I’ll be in New York and will miss it.
Breth: Robert’s show is a great bonus to any event. His fast paced comedy, whimsical humor, amazing magical illusions, mixed with his high octane, audience tested and very much approved (with thunderous applause) juggling is a phenomenal hit for diverse occasions.
Dattner: Robert is a consummate professional magician–funny, creative, entertaining, and also a great inspiration for his positivity, generosity, and outgoing nature! It is a privilege to know him. Oh, and his new website which I’ve been watching him develop is so cool. http://www.strongentertianment.comÔÇŁ
