“Will Durst is the natural successor to Mort Sahl” – The NY Post.

“Highly Recommended! Durst is at his sly, savvy best. A sharp one man show.” – The New York Times.

“A great political satirist! One of the funniest guys around!” – Fox News Radio.

“One of the greatest commentators of all things political. He’s one of the best.” – Air America Radio.

“He’s perfected a verbal jitterbug of comedy, taking on politics, and war and rhetoric” – The New Yorker Magazine.

“If you’re tired of politics as usual, you’ll love Will Durst.” – WOR Radio.

In this lightning-paced comedic tour-de-force, satirist/author/actor Will Durst, described by the New York Times as “possibly the best political comic working today, “ celebrates the two-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s ‘Reign of Error’ with an hysterical historical updated analysis and rollicking feast of outrage about where we are, how we got here, and what may lie ahead.

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 it is 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 his audiences with hysterical observations and righteous exasperation, Durst mocks & scoffs & taunts in segments such as Trumpapalooza, the Bright Sides of Donald J. Trump’s 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 night’s proceeds will be donated to fund a non- profit whose mission will be to bury wire cutters along the Canadian border. Will Durst’s 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 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.
