Will Durst brings one-man show to Crystal Bay

Comedian Will Durst will bring his first one-man show since the acclaimed “Elect to Laugh” to the North Shore next week.

“‘BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG,’ is an uproarious tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations, fashions and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation,” according to a press release from promoters. “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. Favorite cruciferous vegetable? It’s a celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation culminating in an extra, added special treat — the Meaning of Life.”

During the show, Durst explores his generation and the still vibrant role it plays in today’s youth-obsessed society, according to the release.

“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 & Hope I Die Before I… Ooops, Too Late,’” according to the release.

Durst is recognized as a prominent political satirist in the U.S. He is also the author of three books, has told jokes in 14 countries and has racked up 800+ television appearances.
