you can't make stuff up like this!
Taped in the wilds of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf at Cobbs Comedy Club you can't make stuff p like this CDin the Courtyard of the Cannery at a point four and a half months after the world was forced to kneel under the shadow of 911. Much mocking and scoffing and taunting ensues, involving Bush and the Clintons, comedy as a cathartic release and life during wartime. Happy comedy.
Warning!
Taped for and by XM Radio on March 13, 2004, deep in the heart of the belly of the DC beast at the Improv on Warning CDConnecticut Avenue, this production was designed to look like a bootleg, but nobody got the joke. 3 years into the first Bush administration, it’s pretty damn funny if I do say so myself. And I do. So will you.

Raging Moderate
Acme Comedy Club. Minneapolis, Minnesota. Legendary producer Dan Schlissel of Stand Up Records culled this from a week of recorded performances in May of 2009. Originally titled, “On the Cusp,” Raging Moderate CDit dealt with the end of eight wonderful years of George W Bush in the comedic crosshairs and segued into the first blush of Barack Obama’s historic term. Voted one of the Top Five Comedy Albums of 2010.

Quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today.

Heir apparent to Mort Sahl and Dick Gregory.
—The San Francisco Examiner
He’s an equal opportunity offender with a restless mind and delicious sense of language. Where most comedians give us attitude, Durst brings style and has one thing in common with the best: a sense of moral outrage.

Summer of 72
Summer job. Between semesters at college. I forget which. Think I was finished with UWCWC and moving on to the lesser named but larger learning factory: UWM, which at the time was one of the 20 largest universities in the nation. In terms of students. Most of whom commuted. It was an outdoor summer job between semesters at college. Was working on a surveying team plotting the extension of Highway 43 west from Hales Corners to Mukwanago.
