Will Durst is acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country. He’s patched together a quilt of a humorous career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice-overs and stand-up into a riotous patchwork of funny comedy humor. The Oregonian called him, “The thinking man’s comedian." Author of 4 books, Durst has told jokes in 16 countries, racked up 800+ television appearances, released 5 CDs and despite blistering reproach, continues to squeeze ketchup on his bratwurst.
Durst’s one-man show, The Durst Case Scenario received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike in its run at the Marsh in San Francisco, and on tour to 30 cities in 6 states. A hysterical exploration of the changes in America during the Time of Trump, this 85-minute feast of outrage and outrageousness provided audiences with an amusing outlet for their anger & confusion. Because laughter allows hope to creep back on the inhale.
Now, aided by his trusty overhead projector, Durst has revamped the show to be as up-to-date as the latest 4 am Oval Office tweet, reflecting one full year of Donald Trump’s Reign of Error, and he calls it Durst Case Scenario: Midterm Madness. DCS:MM describes our strange new world where every day without a mushroom cloud is a victory in segments such as “Top Ten Ways the Democrats Will Blow the Midterms,” “Scientific Proof the President is a Reptile” and “Slovenia is an Irony Free Zone.” Prepare to meet the funny side of defiance.
“Ever since I first came across Will Durst, I have read every one of his posts and commentaries," producer Eric Krebs comments. "He is one of the most insightful, but serpent tongued, comedians to be found. I jumped at the chance to present him starting the day after next month's most important midterm elections.”
