About Robert Post:
Robert Post is the creator of Post Comedy Theatre, a collection of dazzling, often hilarious sketches that have delighted audiences all around the United States and in countries including Mexico, Turkey, Japan, and Russia. Post has performed on the Today show and in the Kennedy Center; he’s won rave reviews from the New York Times and National Public Radio.
What most people don’t know is that Post was miserable in middle school. Because of a learning disability, he was far from a good student. He felt stupid. He felt that he had nothing to offer. And he felt confused and alone. It was only when he discovered his talent as a performer that he began to appreciate his individual worth. So Post brings great empathy to middle-school students, and as part of his show he shares his own experience. His personal story reassures students that, whatever their self-doubts, they are unique people with unique gifts.
