“My face ached from chuckling" "The crowd’s laughter began with Durst’s first gag and ended with his last" "When it comes to political satire, I think I’ll cast my vote for Durst.”
Cy Ashley Webb. Stark Insider.
“He’s so good that even if you’re suffering from the queasy nausea that goes with too much election year BS, you’ll still make room for him. The other joy of watching Durst lies in watching a master at work who fits into the rare genre of intelligent comedy, equal parts professor and clown.”
Evan Almdale. Joint Forces Journal.
