Bob Petrella / The Memory Man on ActorsE Chat with Host Ron Brewington

Bob Petrella is a producer best known for his incredible memory abilities. Bob hails from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, which is considered to be a ‘small blue collar town’. It is located about 40 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. Bob credits his stellar memory ability to his decent, average grades in school. If it were not for his great memory, Bob might not know how he did so well. However, Bob's extraordinary memory wasn’t an oddity or a rarity in his recollection. Occasionally when he would blurt out a fact or a date in explicit detail, those around him would just think that it “is Bob just being Bob”. It is so unique that none of his family really knew the extent of Bob’s gift of memory until they saw an episode of “Nightline” in 2009. This solidified the story of Bob’s memory and this story did an extensive story on Bob and his exceptional memory.

Bob attended Penn State University for four years and completed a degree in Radio and TV. Bob is the first person in his family to graduate college and is proud of that fact. Not long after graduation, Bob moved to Los Angeles and began working as a comedian. Bob initially worked in the stand-up comedy circuit and in improvisational troupes with the likes of Adam Carolla, Mathew Perry, and Kathy Griffin.

Later in his career, Bob worked in television production and became the producer on hit shows such as “Ice Road Truckers” and “Deadliest Catch”. It was in this capacity that Bob utilized his excellent memory to his advantage and was able to quickly call up archival footage and sound bites. What is extraordinary is that Bob could do all of this without needing notes or transcripts. 
As a result of his incredible and unbelievable memory abilities, Bob became involved in a study starting in 2009 at the University of California, Irvine. Bob's memory was once again center stage and he became part of a study there about people with his rare memory ability. In time Bob was sought out by the media to discuss is memory ability and as a result has appeared on shows such as The View, Nightline, and 60 Minutes. Bob has made numerous international TV appearances and has garnered worldwide attention as a result.

At the present, Bob is traveling the country talking about his memory experiences and his journey with (HSAM) which is also known as Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory. Approximately 20 people in the world are identified with HSAM. Bob talks about how this has affected his relationships, his career, and his life. Bob also offers various tips on how others can improve their memory as well.
