ROBERT WUHL’S “ASSUME THE POSITION” LIVE AT COMIX
NEW YORK, NY – In his first project for HBO since the long-running hit comedy series "Arli$$," Robert Wuhl offers his own freewheeling take on history in a show titled Assume the Position debuting at Comix for three nights only.
Assume the Position first debuted as a television special on HBO and was such a huge hit they ordered another show to be filmed in early 2007. The live performances of Assume the Position at Comix will feature some of the best material from the first HBO special and never before seen material that will be featured in the 2007 version.
Assume the Position examines the stories that made up America and the stories that America made up. During the show, history buff Wuhl takes his audience on a lighthearted journey to show how legends are created, exploring familiar chapters in America's past that owe more to popular culture than fact. In the process Wuhl might just be the funniest social studies teacher you'll ever meet.
“It's an interesting process because I don't know if I'm actually teaching or if I'm doing a monologue or a one man show, so I call it a docucomadality show,” said Wuhl. “It's a documentary, it's a comedy, it's a reality show. But in a sense I really think that it can redefine the variety show.

Thursday, December 21st – 8:00 PM - $20
