    Elect To Laugh: 2016 with Will Durst is a hysterical one- man show designed to satisfy the appetite of both the casual and the professional political junkie by accessing the topical through the jugular. Durst, a descendant of Swift, Twain, Rogers and Carlin hits the hypocritical where its hurts the funniest. He specializes in Comedy For People Who Read or Know Someone Who Does. Winston Churchill called the American political process a circus wrapped inside a game show covered in poisonous weasel glitter. Well, he should have. And both sides of the partisan aisle can’t help but agree that the 2016 election season has already spawned one of the most fertile, febrile and fecund campaigns in history. For mocking, scoffing and taunting purposes. As a source for material it has been an embarrassment of riches. Lush like a tropical rain forest. A cornucopia of delights. Like slam-dunking from a step-ladder. It’s political Humor for Folks Who Don’t Like Politics.
