Will Durst Biography

As the sacred cows beg for their pomposity to be punctured, America cries out for a man with the aim, strength and style to hit them where it hurts the funniest. Will Durst is that man. Sweeping both sides of the aisle with a mix of incredulity and common sense, Durst transcends party ties, having performed at events honoring former Presidents Bill Clinton and George HW Bush as well as speaking at both a Mayors Convention and Governors Conference. Heʼs as current as todayʼs headlines. Outraged and outrageous. Comedy for people who read or know someone who does.

Ulysses Press released Durstʼs first book, “The All American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing,” was based on a critically acclaimed one man Off Broadway show, which had critics climbing over themselves reaching for superlatives.

Durst writes a nationally syndicated weekly column, daily website jokes, voices radio commentaries yet manages to find time to perform 100s of shows a year at theaters, clubs, corporate events and benefits all over the country. A regular guest on NPR, MSNBC and Fox News, heʼs received 5 Emmy nominations and 7 consecutive nominations for the American Comedy Awards Stand Up of the Year. His 800+ global television appearances include HBO, The Today Show, Letterman, CNNʼs Inside Politics, Good Morning America, Showtime, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, CBS Morning News, the BBC, CBC, Greek, Scottish, French and Australian TV. And radio, donʼt get me started. Lots. He even spent a year co-hosting a San Francisco morning radio show with former Mayor Willie Brown.

The first comic invited to perform at Harvardʼs Kennedy School of Government, Durst has told jokes in 14 countries and blogged the Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Course the past 4 years. Hobbies include the never-ending search for the perfect cheeseburger while his heroes remain the same from when he was twelve: Thomas Jefferson and Bugs Bunny.
