News   Political Pundit Will Durst to Play New World Stages in August
 
Political pundit and comedian Will Durst will bring a mouthful of Capitol Hill satire to the New York Stage this summer with his latest show: The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing.

Presented by Hanging Chad Productions, Durst's Bipartisan Bashing will play New World Stages with previews beginning Aug. 6 and an official opening scheduled for Aug. 15. The San Francisco-based Durst, who is known for his regular commentary on CNN and NPR, also writes a nationally syndicated op-ed column. He has been nominated for five Emmy Awards and received seven nominations for the American Comedy Awards' Stand Up of the Year prize.

Durst's production notes for The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing describe the show as "a 90-minute political comedy for people who are sick of politics as usual. We laugh to keep from crying, right? And with a president, two houses of Congress and endless parade of presidential hopefuls making daily punch lines out of headlines, I've got the best joke-writers in the business working for me."

Performances are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 8 PM, Friday and Saturday at 10 PM and Sunday at 3 PM. Tickets go on sale June 25 and are priced $30-$50. Student rush tickets, priced $20, are available at all performances 20 minutes prior to curtain with valid student ID. Call Telecharge.com at (212) 239-6200 or visit www.willdurst.com
