DURST CASE SCENARIO.
“Durst Case Scenario,” is a comedic exploration of America during the Time of Trump: a rollicking feast of outraged and outrageous satire as up- to- date as the latest 4 am Oval Office tweet.
In this lightning- paced 85-, minute comedic tour- de- force, Will Durst analyzes where we are, how we got here and what destinations lie ahead. He chronicles the fear, the danger and all the wacky zany antics, palace intrigues and pitfalls of polarization threatening our country and civilization in this, The New Abnormal.
Ably assisted by his trusty overhead projector and blessed with an extraordinary talent to engage his audiences with his 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.
An alumni of Waukesha South HS, Will Durst went to UWM for about 7 years (never graduated) where he wrote for the UWM Post and the Bugle- American. He started performing stand- up comedy in 1974 at the Rusty Nail on Juneau Ave. Five years later he moved to San Francisco and has since been acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in America. The New York Times calls him, "quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country today." Currently he writes a nationally syndicated humor column & is a frequent contributor on CNN, MSNBC & Fox News. Durst has written 4 books, told jokes in 16 countries, released 5 CDs, racked up 800+ television appearances, been fired by PBS three times, the San Francisco Examiner twice and despite universal reproach, continues to squeeze ketchup onto his bratwurst.
