Details

I will be out of the country for this show, but I thought the group would be interested in this show. I will have someone save seats in the first few rows on the right. I saw this show at The Marsh and I enjoy it very much.

WILL DURST presents BOOMERAGING: FROM LSD TO OMG

Saturday, February 15 8:00pm

$20 door / $17 advance

“Quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country.

The man the Oregonian called “the thinking man’s comic,” Will Durst, is proud to announce his first one- man show since the acclaimed “Elect to Laugh,” ran for 41 weeks in San Francisco in 2012. “BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG”, is an uproarious tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations, and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation. In this rollicking 85 minute heartfelt monologue, Durst encourages his chronologically gifted brethren to refuse to grow old in the face of gravity no matter how many times they forget their online banking security question. Does anyone really have a favorite non- cruciferous vegetable? It’s a celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation culminating in an extra, added special treat- the Meaning of Life.

Ably assisted by his genial wit and trusty overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomer revolutions, evolutions and still vibrant role in today’s youth obsessed society (which we invented, for crum’s sake). He shamelessly strokes the egos and pats the hands of the Love Generation through segments entitled Racing From The Shadow Of A Mushroom Cloud. The Blinking VCR. Still Doing Drugs, Only Now There’s a Co- Pay. The Brightsides of Extreme Adulthood & Hope I Die Before I… Ooops, Too Late. It’s funny. It’s smart. And uplifting, even.

Jean Schiffman of the San Francisco Examiner says of “BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG”, “Durst’s good-natured, acerbic monologue is so funny that… I found myself on the verge of uncontrollable, hysterical laughter. His observations are hilarious.”

Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together an incomparable comedy quilt of a career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice-overs and stand- up into a riotous patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. The New York Times calls him, "quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country today." He’s the author of 3 books, told jokes in 14 countries and racked up 800+ television appearances. Despite blistering reproach he continues to slather ketchup on hot dogs.
