Information for Teachers

About Robert

  • He was born in Columbus, Ohio
  • His grandmother inspired him to break into spontaneous song and dance at a very young age
  • In elementary school, his teachers didn’t fully appreciate his vivid imagination, as he was always in a fantasy world during math class
  • Today he performs his one-man variety show for children around the world

About His Art and Craft

Robert is celebrated for the inventive way he uses body language, masks, music, and his trade mark comic genius to create a host of unforgettable radical characters. His performance is a one-man variety show called POST TIME.

He has developed a loose, playful approach to performance that invites audiences to participate in his zany world. He describes his performance style as a charismatic comedy feast that unleashes the imagination and defies description.
