Will Durst writes a column every week right here on ThirdCoast Digest. This week, I talked with Will in the wake of the New Hampshire primary. With Mitt Romney breaking through as the night’s big winner, we discuss the road ahead and the increasingly likely campaign between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

But now that each of the candidates for the Republican nomination has taken their turn in the seat at the dunk tank, does this mean that the opportunity for comedy has come and gone?

Not by a long shot. Listen in as Will Durst shares his comedic and insightful take on the presidential campaign, Wisconsin politics, and much more. Don’t miss his live performance January 20 at the Next Act Theatre, “Elect to Laugh with Will Durst.”
