Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the sacred cows of American politics practically begging for someone to puncture their pomposity, Will Durst hits them in the funniest places. In The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing, this equal-opportunity offender swats both partisan political piñatas from both sides of the spectrum upside their heads. From the utter incompetence of the Bushies and Dick Cheney's destruction of the Constitution to the spineless antiwar posturing of the Congress and Hillary Clinton's unmatched ability to play fast and loose with the truth, everyone takes their licks. Claiming to represent only those 60 percent of Americans in the middle, Durst attacks the fringe for its lack of common sense and Starbucks-like semantic corruption: he agrees that marketing a small as "tall" and a medium as "grande" is a great way to sell coffee, but having politicians chase "venti"-sized vote totals by appealing to the extremes is hardly a good way to run a country.

Review:

"Highly Recommended! A sharp one man show. Durst is at his sly, savvy best." The New York Times

Review:

"Funny! Combines the best elements of vintage George Carlin and Dennis Miller!" Daily News

Review:

"Smashing 'Bashing!' Brilliantly crafted! The natural successor to Mort Sahl....Rivals George Garlin!" The New York Post

Review:

"He's perfected a verbal jitterbug of comedy taking on politics, war, and rhetoric." The New Yorker

Review:

"I laughed my butt off! A comedian who is actually funny! One of the greatest commentators of all things political! I think he’s one of the best!" Air America Radio

Review:

"A great political satirist! One of the funniest guys around! If you really want to laugh, you might want to consider seeing Will Durst!" Fox News

Synopsis:

PRAISE FOR WILL DURST

“An equal opportunity offender with a restless mind and delicious sense of language.”

--Los Angeles Times

“Will Durst is the natural successor to Mort Sahl.” –New York Post

“A modern day Will Rogers.” –-Boston Globe

“A new wave hysterical hybrid of Hunter S. Thompson and Charles Osgood.” --Chicago Tribune

“A great political satirist! One of the funniest guys around!” –-Fox News Radio

“So good its scary.” –-San Francisco Chronicle

Red versus Blue. Left versus Right. Sun-dried tomato basil reduction versus ketchup. Will Durst is fed up with Americas political extremes. Outraged and outrageous, hes fired up and ready to joke about it. In The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing, Durst hits both sides of the aisle with gloves packed full of common sense. This collection of humorous essays swings from the purple center and lands ‘em where it hurts the funniest.
