The Will & Willie Show - LIVE!
with Will Durst and Willie Brown

Comedian Will Durst and politico extraordinaire Willie Brown join producer Paul “The Lobster” Wells in a freewheeling discussion of the issues of the day – and anything else that crosses their minds!

The New York Times calls Will Durst “quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today.” Sweeping both sides of the aisle with a quiver full of arrows dipped in common sense, Durst has performed at hundreds of appearances in theaters and comedy clubs, on television, and just about everywhere.

Former mayor of San Francisco, and Speaker of the California State Assembly for a record-setting 15 years, Willie Brown brings a commanding, behind-the-scenes political savvy that makes other politicians seem like rank amateurs. Combined with Durst's searing humor and the pair's lightning-fast wits, and you're in for a roller coaster ride of a conversation. This LiveTalk special event will be be recorded live for later release as The Will and Willie Show.
