Will Durst

Stand Up Comedy
Outraged and outrageous, Will Durst is as current as today's headlines, as accurate as a sniper, and universally acknowledged by even his peers as the nation's foremost political comic. A Midwestern baby boomer with a media-induced identity crisis, Durst, according to the New York Times, is "quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today." This equal-opportunity offender is exceptionally adept at swatting both partisan political piñatas upside their heads. Durst is a regular commentator for, Air America, CNN and NPR, writes a nationally syndicated op-ed column and daily website jokes, and yet still finds time to perform hundreds of comedy shows every year-at clubs, corporate events, theaters and benefits, not to mention the occasional acting and voiceover role. Reigning as C-SPAN's favorite comic (eight appearances), Durst is a five-time Emmy nominee and recipient of seven consecutive nominations for the American Comedy Awards Stand Up of the Year. He is the first comic invited to perform at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and the first American to be nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, for the show "Myth America." He has racked up more than 400 television appearances in 14 different countries while slinging jokes around the globe in his one man crusade to make people laugh out loud on purpose against their will.
