In this brand new multimedia performance, kids talk to kids in a compelling, funny and educational show. Dealing with real issues affecting students today including social media, testing, bullying and peer pressure these video testimonials by kids and their advocates (along with a generous dose of Post’s signature humor) is sure to resonate with school and public audiences alike.
Comedian Robert Post barely survived Middle School. Struggling because of various learning disabilities, he found that making people laugh saved him. One of Robert Post’s childhood report cards in Columbus, Ohio, gave a hint as to how his future might unfold. Not amused by Robert’s antics, his teacher created a whole new column of categories describing maladaptive behavior. Happily for audiences around the world, Post stuck with antics. The result: a dazzling performance career that continues to defy categories.
“How To Survive Middle School fulfills a void in the performances we offer to the kids in our community, addressing an impressionable age group which is easy to avoid. Robert has an uncanny ability to engage with middle school-aged kids like I’ve never experienced, and it was great to see them interact and feel understood.”
