WHO the show
.
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.
.
What the Show
.
The Durst Case Scenario is a hilarious exploration of how America is changing during the Time of Trump. DCS is a rollicking feast of outraged and outrageous satire as up-to-date as the latest 4 am Oval Office tweet. In this lightning- paced 85-minute comedic tour-de-force, Durst describes this strange new world where every day without a mushroom cloud is a victory. He details the anxiety of never knowing when the president will strike the flint that shoots a spark to light the fuse to Armageddon. Prepare to meet the funny side of defiance.
.
Why The Show
Because laughter allows room for hope to creep back on the inhale. Crowds are streaming to performances searching for a community of like- minded confused and frustrated souls. Equal parts comedy and therapy, the intrepid Dr. Durst assists audiences in overcoming their PTSD: President Trump Stress Disorder, by surgically isolating the farcical and sticking pins into the ludicrous. For sufferers who never thought they’d laugh again, this show is the perfect prescription.
