Sworn enemy to all tyrants, foreign and domestic, Will Durst 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 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 SF 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," and his
performances are made possible by the 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
