The main act was great, and it is great that the lead ups got some experience, but at times they were a little too self-conscious and in your face about it. "I guess that one didn't make it with this crowd," etc. Yes, got a little slow at times,...continued

The punchline is in the centre of the office district of SF. Decent venue with good parking around on the street. It has a variety of tables and booths scattered around the venue.

Seating is at the managements discretion and we got a booth...continued

Will Durst is an old pro. We had seen Janeane Garafolo a few weeks back at Cobbs which is much bigger. It was nice seeing Will Durst at the punchine because it's more intimate, and much easier to park in the neighborhood.

Will's still got "it." His timing is impeccable. Lots of belly laughs. I especially like his "take" on politics.

Brilliant political comic. Great poetic humor. Fabulous writing. I love his book, The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing. With Will, it is not just a sport, it is an art! He jokes vividly about politicians we remember and the absurd...continued

Durst's act was fantastic. A master of political satire, he's witty and engaging. The warm-up acts were quite good, as well. We had a great evening, and would definitely see another show at the Punch Line.

We arrived at the venue a few minutes...continued

Marvelous comedy! Will has thousands of great jokes, brilliantly told with vivid vocabulary. "Jokes for those who read, or know someone who does." Great writer and performer. Have seen him many times and really enjoy it every time.

The club was comfortable, great sight lines regardless of your seat. Waitress was very pleasant and fast with the orders. The three performers were a nice contrast. The first guy, Joe(?) was the weakest with poor timing, over emphasized facial...continued

This was a thrilling night of comedy! Got to see favorite Will Durst in great form. Exciting to see Paul Provenza again with his irreverent humor, launching his book The Satiristas, full of interviews with some of my favorite comics. Saw Jamie...continued

Will Durst is is always worth seeing --even if he does not have Bush to go off on anymore. Sharp, current, great timing. The Punchline is a great venue for comedy; service is good; food as well if you are running late. A great deal at Goldstar...continued

He was hysterical. Really really funny. I do think, though, that about 75% of his material was very political, some quite sophisticated and therefore not everyone's cup of tea. But I loved it. Also, fyi, I was totally unable to print out my...continued

I last saw Will back in The 80's...He is still the best at what he does! He sheds laughter and light on our present political turmoil when it is needed the most.

The opening acts were great and the Punchline is a terrific club!
