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 most current 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.

Durst provides a balm for the anxiety of never knowing whether the president will strike the flint that shoots a spark to light the fuse to Armageddon and how every day without a mushroom cloud is a victory. Prepare to meet the funny side of defiance. Because laughter allows hope to creep back on the inhale.

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.

Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, 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.

"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. ---Gilad Barach, Millennial Notes
