2016 election focus of North Lake Tahoe comedy satire show

CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. — “Elect To Laugh: 2016” with Will Durst is a brand- new, hysterical show stalking the presidential election cycle like white on rice.

Ably assisted by his trusty overhead projector, this hilarious 80-minute production reflects Durst’s outraged and outrageous sensibilities, accessing the topical through the jugular, as current as Bernie Sanders’ lead staffer’s latest tweet.

Co -authored by the best joke writers in the business — Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama, not to mention the ubiquitous Sarah Palin, and ably assisted by the 535 hardworking satirists in Congress — this show is more bipartisan than an Apple Pie Day Proclamation.

Every political stance is taken to task with extra-special attention paid to the irredeemably dim. Of which there is more than a little.

“Elect to Laugh: 2016” hits the hypocritical where it hurts the funniest chronicling the country’s torturously amusing path through the primaries, debates, ads, mud, spin, tears, flip- flops and flop- flips. It is comedy for people who read or know someone who does. Political comedy for folks who don’t like politics.

Check out the 21-and-up comedy show at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10, at the Crystal Bay Casino. Tickets are $16 in advance, $20 day of show, and doors open at 7:30 p.m. Visit CrystalBayCasino.com to learn more.
