‘I’m not easy to describe,’ he says.

Funny man Robert Post, an Ohio native, has performed all over the world, including a stop at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., this past summer, and several appearances on NBC’s “Today Show.” He has performed in all 50 states as well as abroad in countries such as Europe, Russia, Japan and Turkey.

“What’s interesting about my show and my career is that I’m not easy to describe, but I guarantee you when people see it, they are going to really like it, because I’m different,” said Robert Post.

Post will return to the Cincinnati area, and bring his one-man variety show to the Fairfield Community Arts Center on Friday night. On stage, he will deliver a mix of humor and improv with acting, mime, juggling, video and more to create laughter and amazement for audiences of all ages.

Robert banters with the audience throughout the evening as he shares about a dozen different sketches, such as “Pasquale’s Kitchen,” “Ace Wingspan — King of the Sky” and “Tango,” among others.

“My calling card is that every piece that I do is different from the next, so I’m known for physical comedy. Physically, I’m funny. I’m trained as a juggler, although I don’t go out there and juggle per se. For example, in ‘Pasquale’s Kitchen,’ I take the pots and pans, and they become these different things, and I roll them across my body, and slide them to the end of the table,” Post said.

Acting is another key element of his show. He portrays a variety of different characters, and creates a world for people to see, even though it’s not physically there, making the invisible become visible. Videos are also incorporated into the show.

“With the video, I’ve captured my life on the road. In this show, there will be three videos, and that is literally my life on the road,” Post said.

Post was born and raised in Ohio. He currently lives in Lithopolis, Ohio, a village 20 miles outside of Columbus and a place he said is the “most awesome-named town in the world.” Post has also lived in St. Louis, New Orleans, Boston, New York and Maine, prior to moving back to Ohio in 1984.
