KPOV 88.9 fm and Silver Moon Brewing present political comic Will Durst’s new show Elect to Laugh: 2016 Friday, February 12, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon in Bend.
Silver Moon is the presenting sponsor, with proceeds going to KPOV High Desert Community Radio. Contributing sponsors include Active Life Tai Chi, Doubletree by Hilton of Bend, Moonfire and Sun Garden Center, Primal Cuts Meat Market, and JR’s Body & Paint.
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. Durst says he offers political comedy for “people who read or know someone who does.”
KPOV has brought Durst to Bend twice before to sell-out crowds and rave reviews.
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.”
