Elect to Laugh: 2016 is Durst’s comic look at the political season as it unfolds.
“I am working with some of the best joke writers around,” says Durst. “Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Rand Paul, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Bernie Sanders, and Barack Obama, ably assisted by the 535 hard working satirists in Congress.” He promises that “every political stance will be taken to task” in his bipartisan 80-minute performance.
KPOV has brought Durst to Bend twice before to sell-out crowds and rave reviews. Tickets to the February 12 show will go on sale in mid-January.
The Oregonian calls Durst “the thinking man’s comic.” The New Yorker magazine says,
“He’s perfected a verbal jitterbug of comedy, taking on politics and war and rhetoric.” Fox News calls Durst, “A great political satirist. One of the funniest guys around.”
