Biography

With the sacred cows begging to have their pomposity punctured, America cries for a man with the aim, strength and style to hit them where it hurts the funniest. Will Durst is that man. Described as “the thinking man’s comic” by The Oregonian, he transcends party ties, having performed for 3 elected presidents, (Bill Clinton, George HW Bush, Al Gore) and entertaining at both a Mayors Convention and Governors Conference. As current as the latest 3 am tweet, Durst is a self- described Raging Moderate, specializing in “comedy for people who read or know someone who does.”

 

Of his acclaimed Off- Broadway show, “The All American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing,” the New York Times said “Durst is at his sly savvy best. Highly recommended.” The Epoch Times: “A comic and performance tour- de- force, Durst attacks both the left and the right and hits the bulls eye every time.“ Fox News: “A great political satirist.” “The New Yorker: “Durst has perfected a verbal jitterbug of comedy.”

 

While Durst currently tours two one- man shows, “Durst Case Scenario” & “BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG,” he finds time to write a weekly nationally syndicated humor column, voice commentaries for a dozen radio stations, and perform hundreds of comedy shows in theaters, clubs, and banquet rooms around the world every year.

 

He has been published by National Lampoon, George Magazine, The New York Times, the Atlanta Journal- Constitution, the Las Vegas Review- Journal, the Milwaukee Journal and many other journals and reviews. He was also a regular columnist for both the San Francisco Chronicle and the San Francisco Examiner.

 

Durst has told jokes in 16 countries, written 4 books, released 5 CDs, appeared on television over 900 times, including HBO, Showtime, CNN, A & E, BBC, CBC, Greek, Scottish, French and Australian TV and many more. He’s been fired by the San Francisco Examiner twice and PBS three times. 

 

Hobbies include the search for the perfect cheeseburger while his heroes remain the same as when he was 12: Thomas Jefferson and Bugs Bunny. And despite universal reproach, he continues to squeeze ketchup on his bratwurst.
