About this show

On the night before President Nixon's 1974 resignation, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger arrives at the White House prepared to find Nixon ready to resign. What follows is a riotous romp as Nixon and Kissinger obsess about their places in history. In a wickedly funny sparring match, Nixon and Kissinger relive historical events as they superbly role-play Brezhnev, Chairman Mao and JFK. Fantasy, reality and the absurd are rolled up in one irreverent comedy, as the two world leaders get down and dirty concocting a series of harebrained crises to keep them both in office.
