“So funny I found myself on the verge of uncontrollable, hysterical laughter. His observations are hilarious.” Jean Schiffman- San Francisco Examiner

In this fresh production, Will Durst, the man the New York Times calls “quite possibly the best political comedian in the country,” switches directions to pay tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation.

Durst explains why his chronologically gifted brothers and sisters should refuse to grow old in the face of gravity no matter how many times they forget their password retrieval question. It’s a celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation. What happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia?

Will Durst has a documentary film coming out called 3 Still Standing that features Robin Williams.

    I have been listening to Brian Regan and Louis CK the last few weeks n my way in to work and home. It’s really helped to appreciate the ridiculousness of life and forget about the small stuff. My wife has been going through a tough patch and I would love to see her laugh for a few hours.

    I have been cutting my teeth on Stand Up comedy to promote my nonprofit. Would love to see this pro tear up the stage! Please pick me.

    I tell people all the time about my blessings since moving here, including the Pipeline…. an easy way to quickly see “things to do” in the area! Would love to take a giggle trip to this event! Keep up the good event news! Thanks!

    Could use a good laugh!

  19. TJ Kramer September 21, 2014 at 3:13 pm #

    This sounds like it could be hilarious for a couple who represent the last of the boomers.

    I remember seeing Will Durst many years ago.. no one knew who he was then
    Its nice to see he’s still standing.. in a very tough business. I want to see him again.

    Love watching stand up and don’t do it nearly enough. Would be delighted to win!

  22. Kelly September 22, 2014 at 11:21 am #

    Would love to take my husband since he is giving local stand up a try himself!

    Ha Ha! good luck

    I saw Will Durst at an outdoor beer and comedy festival in San Jose (called the Brew Ha Ha, clever name) about 20(?) years ago. I had never heard of him at the time. He was by far the funniest guy I saw that day. He really made an impression on me and I never forgot his name, though i haven’t seen him since. He was frickin’ hilarious. I would love to see him again, I could use a few good laughs like he provided that day! Thanks for letting me know he is coming to Portland, I would not have known otherwise.

    I need to take my GF to something worthwhile. This is it!

  26. Martin September 25, 2014 at 6:42 pm #

    I want that ticket. Give it to me, damn it. I’m old — older than even the Boomers — and the world owes me some deference. You want me to sit home another weekend playing solitaire Parcheesi? C’mon, it’s only $40, and I’ll give the second ticket away to the shyest girl in line. I wouldn’t bother if I could gain entry with my food stamp card, but I can’t. In other words, in the name of God, have some pity on me… Have a nice day.
