Bob Arno’s so different. Not a stand-up comedian or a magician who pops out of boxes.
While there are a handful of pickpocket entertainers in the world, none has taken the theme to the extent Bob has, offering a full hour of innovative, educational, fascinating, and funny pickpocket entertainment, free of fluff and padding.
Bob Arno artfully blends the comedy and tragedy of thievery in his outrageous presentation, Secrets of the Steal Business.
He sets up confrontations that push buttons, poke fun, and provoke the gut reactions usually held tightly in check.
He touches on themes that haunt and intrigue the curious mind: treachery, risk-taking, dishonesty, and dangerous pursuits.
Time magazine called him “the world’s foremost expert on the techniques of pickpockets.” Fortune called him “a global expert” in its November 06 “Excellence Issue.”
Bob is a leading international provider of theft risk management solutions for the business and leisure sectors.
Tactical observation skills lifted from the street are useful in the boardroom and business lunch. Illustrated with demos, brought to life with video, and peppered with humor and anecdotes, Bob Arno’s upbeat talks teach awareness and the importance of observation as a strategy to gain the competitive advantage in business relationships.
Bob is a entertainer, author, and special lecturer to law enforcement agencies.
He has been profiled or quoted on NPR, CNN, MSNBC, ABC’s 20/20, The Travel Channel, The Learning Channel, Discovery, Court TV, in The New York Times, USA Today, Fortune, Kiplinger’s, National Geographic Traveler, Law and Order, and others. He has lectured for the Police Departments of Chicago, San Diego, Houston, Las Vegas, Detroit, Honolulu, Anaheim, and many abroad; for the California Tourism Safety & Security Conference, the International Tourism Safety and Security Conference, and many others; for Kroll & Associates, RSA Security Conference and Expo, and more.
He taught an accredited course at the State Police Training Academy.
As a comedy pickpocket performer, his career spans years of success on four continents. He delivers some of the longest sustained laughter in corporate show business–guaranteed hysteria.
Yes, Bob is “LOL” funny, but he also delivers a gripping reality. His presentations are thought-provoking, timely, and deeply absorbing.
Bob’s show-and-tell presentation, Secrets of the Steal Business, is a powerful corporate edutainment experience, regularly praised as “fascinating,” “educational,” and “invaluable.”
