TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: The Marsh San Francisco Offers Timely “Durst Case Scenario: Midterm Madness”

Oct 13, 2018
The Marsh San Francisco (1062 Valencia St.) presents “Durst Case Scenario: Midterm Madness” by political comedian Will Durst, with newly added material. The show currently is performing on Tuesdays through October 30, with two additional performances at The Marsh Berkeley (2120 Allston Way) on October 18 and 20. Specializing in political humor for folks who don’t like politics, Durst’s rollicking feast of outraged and outrageous satire is a comedic exploration of how America is changing in the Trump era.

From “covfefe” to “alternative facts,” “Durst Case Scenario” analyzes where America and society stands post-election, how the country got there, and the possible destinations that may lie ahead in year two for the 45th president. Along with the changes the United States and even the world are experiencing, he details “The New Abnormal” – wacky antics, palace intrigues, and pitfalls of polarization threatening our nation and society. With segments such as “Trumpapalooza,” the “Bright Sides of Donald J. Trump’s Presidency,” the “Symptoms of PTSD (Post Trump Stress Disorder),” and “Mike Pence is the Product of Reverse Taxidermy,” Durst explains this strange new world and details the anxiety of uncertainty with an unpredictable president.

“Durst Case Scenario” made its Marsh debut in July 2017 and has earned praise from critics and audiences alike. This show could easily be called “equal parts comedy and therapy,” but either way, will have you coming away with a smile. To laugh at suffering in the worst of times may feel wrong, but to laugh together can feel so right!

For tickets the public may visit www.themarsh.org or phone The Marsh San Francisco box office at (415) 282-3055 (open Monday through Friday, 1pm-4pm).
