Troppo Bob at Macksville Library

He might not have pulled a rabbit out of his hat, but he brought forth many scarves from his hands and juggling balls from his mouth.

Troppo Bob kept a small crowd of kids well-entertained this morning (Wednesday) at the Macksville Library.

More than that though, he followed up with a workshop, sending his happy crew home with tricks of their own to play on unsuspecting family members.

His repartee was fast and funny, although one young lad quipped “that’s enough of the ‘dad’ jokes’!

Undeterred Bob kept them coming, raising giggles of approval and amusement from his pint size audience.

Ventriloquism was another skill he shared – together with his tennis ball character, whose girlfriend was ‘racquet’ and who took him to ‘court’.

Troppo Bob says his routine is ‘amazing and mystifying’ – indeed it was.
