About Will Durst
Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together a comedy quilt of a career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice overs and most especially, stand up comedy, into a hilarious patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. His abiding motto is “You can’t make stuff up like this." The New York Times calls him "possibly the best political comic in the country." Fox News agrees "he's a great political satirist," while the Oregonian hails him as a “hilarious stand-up journalist.” This former radio talk host, oyster shucker, and margarine smuggler currently writes a nationally syndicated humor column, and his scribblings have appeared in Esquire, George, the San Francisco Chronicle, National Lampoon, The New York Times and scads of other periodicals.

As some of you may
know, Will had a stroke
last October.

Title of this Week's Durst Case Scenario Hey Y'all!
It's been such a long time since my last update. Sorry. Things have been jumping here at Durstco.
My life has been full of blood (cat scratches), sweat and tears producing the 42nd Annual Comedy Day, which is this Sunday (is it really the day after TOMORROW?). 12noon to 5pm. Robin Williams Meadow, Golden Gate Park. Still absolutely FREE!! Line up can be seen at:
I know what Max Bialystok was talking about in "The Producers" when he says "I'm wearing a cardboard belt!" It seems everything gets swept aside when Comedy Day prep happens.
Except for the care and feeding of my Sweet Baboo Will.
He is coming along so very well! His left arm has much more movement. He's so proud of himself; he can now raise his arms and do the "Wakanda Forever!" salute. Not possible even two months ago.
He constantly amazes his therapists and I'm so happy he's made so much progress in such a short time.
Meanwhile, we've been going out to "date lunches" every Friday afternoon. We used to have lunch out at least once a week in the Before Times.
And I finally got Will out to Oracle Park to see a Giants game! It was a comeback win and very exciting! Many thanks to our STH Client Manager Margo Malone for getting us primo ADA seats in the Club Section. Will had such a great time and we actually made it on TV! Thanks to Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper for the mention and the camera time!! Here's a pic of us at the game! Photo by: Steve Eigenberg (aka Duke Snider)
Sadly Will is still not able to appear live at Comedy Day. We're hoping he can make it next year. I have a recording of Will I'm having the sound guys play while I'm onstage holding Will's cutout from the 2020 season of Giants baseball.
Happy September Everybody and Thank You So Much for the continued love and support!! Hope to see some of you in the Meadow on Sunday!
xoxo, Debi & Will

BoomeRaging (1)(2)Interview
From LSD to OMG
BoomeRagingWill Durst’s acclaimed tribute to the history, growth, joys, achievements, frustrations, fashions and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation. Ably assisted by his trusty overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomers’ revolutions, evolutions and still vibrant role in today’s youth-obsessed society, which they invented, for crum’s sake. It’s a celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation and as an extra, added, special treat- the Meaning of Life.
