Durst brings comedy show to The Palms

By
From page A7 | June 18, 2014 |

The man the New York Times calls “quite possibly, the best political comedian working in the country today,” Will Durst, will present his one-man show “BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG” — a tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation — at 8 p.m. Friday, June 20, at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters.

In this 90-minute monologue, Durst encourages his chronologically gifted brothers and sisters to refuse to grow old in the face of gravity no matter how many times they forget their password retrieval question. It’s what happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia. A celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation culminates in an extra, added special treat: the Meaning of Life.

Assisted by an overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomer revolutions, evolutions and still-vibrant role in today’s youth-obsessed society. The show is funny, smart, clean and uplifting, even — a theatrical event delivered with stand-up timing and a bit of poetry.

Durst’s career weaves together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice-overs and most especially, stand-up comedy. His motto is “You can’t make stuff up like this.”

This former radio talk host, oyster shucker and margarine smuggler cwrites a nationally syndicated humor column, and his scribblings have appeared in Esquire, George, the San Francisco Chronicle, National Lampoon, The New York Times and other periodicals.

Tickets are $20 and are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out.
