Will Durst's BoomeRaging From LSD to OMG

The man The Oregonian called "the thinking man's comic," Will Durst, is proud to announce his first one-man show since the acclaimed "Elect to Laugh," ran for 41 weeks in San Francisco in 2012. "BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG" is an uproarious tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations, and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation. In this rollicking 85-minute heartfelt monologue, Durst encourages his chronologically gifted brethren to refuse to grow old in the face of gravity, no matter how many times they forget their online banking security question. Does anyone really have a favorite non-cruciferous vegetable? It's a celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation culminating in an extra, added special treat - the Meaning of Life.


Ably assisted by his genial wit and trusty overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomer revolutions, evolutions and still vibrant role in today's youth obsessed society (which we invented, for crum's sake). He shamelessly strokes the egos and pats the hands of the Love Generation through segments entitled Racing From The Shadow Of A Mushroom Cloud; The Blinking VCR; Still Doing Drugs, Only Now There's a Co-Pay; The Brightsides of Extreme Adulthood; and Hope I Die Before I... Ooops, Too Late. It's funny, it's smart, and uplifting, even.


Special Note: Due to the graphic nature and startlingly archaic technology, children under the age of 40 will not be admitted unless accompanied by a guardian or if they bring a note. We apologize for any inconvenience.



"Durst’s good-natured, acerbic monologue is so funny that… I found myself on the verge of uncontrollable, hysterical laughter. His observations are hilarious."

Jean Schiffman of the San Francisco Examiner
