Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together a quilt of a comedy career; weaving national television and radio shows and commentaries, acting, writing, voice overs and stand- up into a hilarious patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. The New York Times says he’s "quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country today." The New Yorker says “he’s perfected a verbal jitterbug of comedy and commentary.” He’s released 4 books, 5 CDs, writes a nationally syndicated humor column and is a frequent contributor on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News & Current TV. Durst has told jokes in 14 countries, racked up 800+ television appearances, been fired by the San Francisco Examiner twice, PBS three times and despite blistering reproach, continues to squeeze ketchup onto his hot dog.

The New York Times has called Will Durst, "quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country today." He writes a nationally syndicated humor column and is a frequent contributor on CNN, MSNBC & Fox News. Although receiving 5 Emmy nominations and 7 consecutive nominations for the American Comedy Awards Stand Up of the Year, he's never won anything. Not even a toaster. His first book, “The All American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing” was taken from his hit Off- Broadway one- man show of the same name and another book was made out of his 2012 one- man show “Elect to Laugh” which ran for 41 weeks in San Francisco. Currently he is performing his tribute to Baby Boomers “BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG” in theaters across the nation. He is also one of the titular characters in the new documentary “3 Still Standing” premiering on the film festival circuit in the fall of 2014. His 800+ television appearances include: HBO, The Today Show, Letterman, Inside Politics, GMA, Showtime, Comedy Central and the CBS Morning News. Durst, author of 3 books and 5 CDs, has been fired by the San Francisco Examiner twice by PBS three times and once ran for Mayor of San Francisco, spending $1200, pulling 2% of the vote, meaning on a dollar per vote basis, he is mayor of San Francisco. His heroes remain the same as when he was 12… Thomas Jefferson and Bugs Bunny. Despite blistering reproach he continues to squeeze ketchup onto hot dogs.
