    Political Comedy

    As the sacred cows set themselves up for slaughter each night at six, America cries out for a man with the aim, strength and style to swat the partisan political piñatas upside their heads. Will Durst is that man. Sweeping both sides of the aisle with a quiver full of barbs sharpened by a keen wit and dipped into the same ink as the day's headlines, Durst transcends political ties, performing at events featuring Vice President Al Gore and former President George H.W. Bush, also speaking at the Governors Conference and the Mayors Convention cementing his claim as the nation's ultimate equal opportunity offender. Outraged and outrageous, Durst may mock and scoff and taunt, but he does it with taste.

    A Midwestern baby boomer with a media-induced identity crisis, Durst has been called "a modern day Will Rogers" by The L.A. Times while the S. F. Chronicle hails him as "heir apparent to Mort Sahl and Dick Gregory." The Chicago Tribune argues he's a "hysterical hybrid of Hunter Thompson and Charles Osgood," although The Washington Post portrays him as "the dark Prince of doubt." He is a five-time Emmy nominee, has appeared on every comedy show featuring a brick wall including Letterman, Comedy Central, HBO and Showtime, receiving 7 consecutive nominations for the American Comedy Awards Stand Up of the Year.
    All agree Durst is America's premier political comic.

    Kingston Trio Tribute

    The County Line Trio performs their tribute to the famous Kingston Trio. Their shows are filled with the many hit songs of the Trio and a delightful helping of tongue-in-cheek humor that would make even the Smothers Brothers envious.

    With the original Kingston Trio constantly topping the charts with songs like "Tom Dooley," "Lemon Tree," "This Land is Your Land," "Scotch and Soda," and "A Worried Man— songs so timeless they literally travel the decades with new fans — it is no wonder why in 1969, three guys decided they were going to be a Kingston Trio tribute band. Original members of that band — Millbrae-raised Tod Brendlen on vocals, banjo and guitar, San Mateo-raised Dean Hammer on vocals, guitar and conga drum, and Fort Bragg-born Bud Olsen on vocals and guitar — were so good, the Kingston Trio were fans. In fact, they've been called the "museum version" of the Kingston Trio. Recently, Bob Lawrence, once an early part time member of the band, joined County Line as a regular member, playing guitar, banjo and joining in the vocals. This is a return engagement, and a word of advice to ticket buyers, last year's concert was packed!
