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. Nominated by Theater Bay Area for Best Solo Show, Durst Case Scenario: Midterm Madness (DCS: MM) is a rollicking feast of outrage and outrageousness as up-to-date as the latest 4am 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.
“Durst Case Scenario” is most certainly a guilty pleasure. To laugh at suffering in the worst of times feels wrong, but to laugh together can feel so right.
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.
Will Durst’s performances are made possible by the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution…at least for now. See the show before this sort of thing becomes illegal!
