Hysterically funny look at what's going on in the political arena. As Durst said,like the Olympics, he's in-demand every 4 years. Don't miss this go round.

More Information


Elect To Laugh with Will Durst and Friends! is a hysterical hybrid chasing down the presidential election cycle like white on rice with material as up to date as the latest tweet from DC. It will blend monologues and commentary and perhaps the occasional rant. The show’s intent is to blur the traditional boundaries between stand- up comedy and theater. Through innovation, experimentation and a ravenous appetite for accessing the topical via the jugular, Durst and Company are out to prove that jokes are not the enemy.

Descendants of Mark Twain, George Carlin and Spalding Gray, Durst and his rotating cast will every Tuesday twist the rhythm of stand-up with poetry, punditry and puzzles o’plenty planting the production solidly in the strictures and structures of a deconstructed one man show. Or solo performance piece. Whatever. With a single aim: to mock and scoff and taunt, but with taste. Consider it political comedy for people who don’t like politics.

The show runs approximately 90 minutes, and is recommended for ages 18 and up.
