Beloved entertainer Hob the Troll has performed at Renaissance festivals, libraries, corporate events, and personal parties since 2003!
Hob started out as part of the resident cast at the Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly, Michigan. Soon enough, he began to perform at other festivals, including the Bay Area Renaissance Festival in Tampa, Florida. Mixing comedy, music, improv, and a flare for the dramatics, he branched out to [mostly planned] appearances at libraries, vaudeville, and variety shows to critical acclaim.
Then came the albums. The debut of HOB SINGS is one of the best selling CDs sold at Renaissance Festivals thanks to massive undercutting, and hits like “I Hate Goats”, and “Trolls Need Loving Too.” Shortly after, a Christmas album was released entitled TROLL THE ANCIENT YULETIDE CAROLS. It was a collection of some of Hob’s favorite Christmas songs, and probably would have won some awards if that sort of thing existed. A third album PET SMELLS contains well-produced, poorly-sung covers of yesterday's favorite songs.
The next avenue Hob sent out to conquer was the vast wasteland of the internet! The HobCast features guests from Renaissance festivals, as well as stars of stage and screen.
Hob keeps traveling, making friends, singin’ and a-playin’!
