Will Durst
Fresh from the national tour of his award- nominated, hilarious chronicle of the action- packed 2016 election, Elect to Laugh, comedian, columnist, actor, author, former oyster shucker, Will Durst, presents his new solo outing Durst Case Scenario, a hysterical historical exploration of the changes in America during the Time of Trump. DCS is a rollicking feast of outrage and outrageousness as up- to- date as the latest 4 am Oval Office tweet.

In this lightning- paced, 85- minute comedic tour- de- force, Durst, described by the New York Times as possibly the best political comic working today, analyzes where we are, how we got here and what destinations may lie ahead. Along with analyzing the altered political landscape, he also details the wacky zany antics, palace intrigues and potholes and pitfalls of polarization that threaten our country, hemisphere, planet, solar system and universe, in this, The New Abnormal.

The response has been electric. Crowds stream to performances searching for a community of like- minded confused 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 theyd laugh again, this show is the perfect prescription.

Durst describes this strange new world where everyday without a mushroom cloud is a victory. He provides a prescription for the anxiety of never knowing whether the president will strike the flint that shoots a spark to light the fuse to Armageddon. Prepare to meet the funny side of defiance. Because its laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale.

Ably assisted by his trusty overhead projector and blessed with an extraordinary talent to engage audiences with righteous exasperation, Durst mocks & scoffs & taunts in segments such as Trumpapalooza, the Bright Sides of Donald J. Trumps Presidency, the Symptoms of PTSD & Mike Pence is the Product of Reverse Taxidermy.

The Durst Case Scenario is playful and ludicrous and whimsical and droll and silly and serious and sarcastic, mischievous, incisive, trenchant, profound, and chock full of jokes. Many funny ones. A unique theatrical event delivered with stand- up timing and not less than a modicum of poetry.

Due to the subversive nature of this show, a portion of each nights proceeds will be donated to fund a non- profit whose mission will be to bury wire cutters along the Canadian border. Will Dursts performances are brought to you by the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution. At least, right now. See this show before this sort of thing becomes illegal.

Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together a quilt of a 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 mans 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.
