DURST CASE SCENARIO: MIDTERM MADNESS

Fresh from the national tour of his award- winning, hilarious chronicle of the changes in America during the Time of Trump, comedian, columnist, actor, author, former margarine smuggler, Will Durst is proud to announce he’s updated his hysterical historical “Durst Case Scenario,” with a colon and a subtitle- “Midterm Madness.” DCS: MM 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,” celebrates the one year anniversary of Donald Trump’s Reign of Error by analyzing where we are, how we got here and the myriad of destinations that may lie ahead. And what the chances are we’ll be fighting with dogs for food once we get there.
Along with analyzing the altered political landscape, Durst 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 have streamed 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 isolating the farcical and sticking pins into the ludicrous. For sufferers who never thought they’d laugh again, DCS: MM is a sanity- preserving prescription.

 

 

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

Augmenting the subversive side 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 comedy career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice- overs and stand- up into a riotous patchwork of amusing 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.
