Political Satirist Will Durst to Perform at Benefit for KPOV


Comedian and political satirist, Will Durst, will be performing on Sunday, August 14, 7pm at the Greenwood Playhouse, 148 NW Greenwood Ave. Tickets are limited for the one-night-only performance which benefits KPOV, High Desert Community Radio.

Tickets prices are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and $50 for VIP seating which includes an after party and Q&A with Will Durst. KPOV members save $2 per ticket. Call the Greenwood Playhouse at 541-389-0803 for information and tickets or visit cascadetheatrical.org or kpov.org

Sweeping both sides of the aisle with a quiver full of arrows dipped in common sense, Will Durst transcends party ties, having performed at events honoring former Presidents Bill Clinton and George HW Bush. In addition to acclaimed appearances, Durst also writes a column and daily website jokes—yet still finds time to perform hundreds of comedy shows every year—at clubs, corporate events, theaters and benefits…not to mention the occasional acting and voice-over role.

Reigning as C-SPAN’s favorite comic, Durst is a 5-time Emmy nominee and recipient of 7 consecutive nominations for the American Comedy Awards Stand Up of the Year. He is the first comic invited to perform at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and the first American to be nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the show “Myth America.”. Durst can be heard on KPOV a few times a week.
