On November 20th stand up comic and one of the best working political satirists, Will Durst, will be performing at the Bagdad Theater is Oakland. I think in the wake of the recent GOP/House Takeover, it would be great to bring on Mr. Durst to get his take on the recent elections and the current political environment.
Here's a little more information about the show and Mr. Durst:
*Durst is more than a stand up comic: he's an author, syndicated columnist, radio and TV commentator, stage and screen actor, radio talk show host, and former margarine smuggler. Like a cross between a stand- up journalist and a living editorial cartoon, he's been nominated for 5 Emmys and has been nominated 7 times for the American Comedy Awards Stand Up of the Year, but has yet to win anything (even a toaster for crumb's sake). The highlight of his career is making Bill Clinton laugh so hard he spit water through his nose.*
Joining him on the bill is Keith Lowell Jensen. Jensen best known as the Atheist in the Coexist? Comedy Tour and the writer, star and director of the indie documentary "Why Lie I Need a Drink?". www.AtheistComedian.com
