Will Durst is a sworn enemy to all tyrants, foreign and domestic, and has been called “quite possibly the best political comic working in America today” by The New York Times. He is a 5-time Emmy nominee; has told jokes in 14 countries; racked up 7 nominations for “Stand-Up of the Year”; and his 600+ television appearances include Letterman, HBO, Showtime, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, Comedy Central, the BBC and many more.
This former radio talk host, oyster shucker, and margarine smuggler writes a weekly, nationally syndicated humor column and is the author of The All American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing from Ulysses Press, which was taken directly from his acclaimed one man off-Broadway show. A cross between a living editorial cartoon and a stand-up journalist, Durst has been fired by Air America once, PBS three times, and twice by the San Francisco Examiner. He is currently a semi-regular on MSNBC, CNN and Fox News. Truly bipartisan, he’s performed for 3 elected presidents, a Governors’ Convention and a Mayors’ Conference. He is now touring the country with his new one man show, The Lieutenant Governor from the State of Confusion. Durst’s abiding motto is “You can’t make stuff up like this.”
