Every first Friday of the month Watermelon Music host a stand up Comedy Night at The Melon Ball! This October they welcome nationally acclaimed political comedian Will Durst.
The New York Times has called Will Durst, “quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country today.” He writes a nationally syndicated humor column and is a frequent contributor on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, has performed for three presidents, a Mayor’s Convention, and a Governors Conference. In 2016, “Elect to Laugh” ran for 41 weeks in San Francisco and his new one- man show “Durst Case Scenario,” is currently touring theaters across the country and beyond. He is also one of the titular characters in the documentary “3 Still Standing” which can be seen on Amazon Prime. His 800+ television appearances include: HBO, The Today Show, Letterman, Inside Politics, GMA, Jon Stewart Show, Showtime, Comedy Central, CBS Morning News and many more. Durst has told jokes in 16 countries, is author of four books, five CDs, and has been fired by the San Francisco Examiner twice, PBS three times, and he once ran for Mayor of San Francisco, spending $1200, pulling two percent of the vote, meaning on a dollar per vote basis, he is mayor of San Francisco. His heroes remain the same as when he was 12 years old… Thomas Jefferson and Bugs Bunny. And, despite blistering reproach, he continues to thwart convention by squeezing ketchup onto his bratwurst.
