He has managed to patch together a comedy quilt of a career utilizing syndicated columns, radio and television commentaries, acting, stand-up comedy and now a book. A dedicated acolyte in the elusive search for the perfect cheeseburger, Durst’s abiding motto is “You can’t make stuff up like this.”
Durst will appear Friday, Aug. 27 at 9 p.m. in Cap’s Oak Street Bar and Grill, 144 Oak St. in Brentwood. Admission to the show is $15. Call 925-634-1025 for tickets.
Reigning as C-SPAN’s favorite comic (eight appearances,) Durst is a five-time Emmy nominee and recipient of seven consecutive nominations for the American Comedy Awards Stand-up of the Year.
He’s 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.” He has racked up more than 400 television appearances in 14 countries while slinging jokes around the globe in his one-man crusade to make people laugh out loud on purpose against their will.
