The Marsh announces that Will Durst’s hit one-man show, BOOMERAGING: FROM LSD TO OMG will extend its run at The Marsh San Francisco through October 29, 2013. A tribute to the joys, achievements, and looming terrors that accompany being a member of the Baby Boom Generation, this rollicking show assesses that group’s vibrant role in today’s youth-obsessed society. Durst’s hilarious romp celebrates Boomers for refusing to grow old in the face of changing times, gravity, and the reflection that greets them daily in the mirror. BOOMERAGING: FROM LSD TO OMG continues at The Marsh San Francisco now through October 29, with shows on Tuesdays at 8pm. For tickets, the public may visit www.themarsh.org or call 415-282-3055 between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
Bay Area comedian Will Durst was called “quite possibly the best political comedian working in the country today,” by The New York Times. In BOOMERAGING: FROM LSD TO OMG, utilizing technology specifically designed not to spook the target audience (overhead projector), Durst explores the Boomer revolutions and evolutions, while detailing how to lose the fear of aging and embrace the wrinkles. He shamelessly strokes the egos and pats the hands of the self-described “Most Important Generation” through segments entitled “Hey You Punks, Get Off My Wireless Router,” “The Blinking VCR,” “Still Doing Drugs, Only Now There’s a Co- Pay,” “The Brightside of Extreme Maturity” and “Hope I Die Before I… Oops, Too Late.”
Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political comedians in the country, Durst has built a stellar comedy career, weaving together columns, books, commentaries, acting, and stand-up comedy into a hilarious fulcrum of outraged and outrageous common sense. He is currently a nationally syndicated humor columnist, and his writings have appeared in Esquire, the San Francisco Chronicle, National Lampoon, The New York Times and many others. He is a five-time Emmy nominee; has been fired by PBS three times; told jokes in 14 countries and his over 800 television appearances include Letterman, HBO, Showtime, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News and the BBC. The critically acclaimed Off-Broadway run of his one-man show, The All American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing was subsequently turned into a book by Ulysses Press and Elect to Laugh is available on Amazon as an e-book or as a trade paper published by Hyperink, and an audio version will soon be released via Stand Up Records.
