An uproarious tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations, and looming doom of the baby boom generation. It's what happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia. A celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation: culminating in an extra, added special treat - the Meaning of Life. Ably assisted by his trusty overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomer revolutions, evolutions and still vibrant role in today's youth obsessed digital society. It's funny. It's smart. Clean and uplifting, even. A unique theatrical event delivered with stand- up timing and no less than a modicum of poetry.

Full press release

Will Durst, is proud to present his highly anticipated return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe after over a decade away.

This brand new show is an uproarious tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations, and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation. In this rollicking monologue, 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 what happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia.

A celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation: culminating in an extra, added special treat - The Meaning of Life.

Ably assisted by a genially acerbic wit and trusty overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomer revolutions, evolutions and still vibrant role in today's youth obsessed society (which we invented, for crum's sake!). He shamelessly strokes egos and pats hands, encouraging the Flower Power Generation to persevere through segments entitled The Psychedelic Colonoscopy, The Diminishment of Peer Pressure, Getting Old has Gotten Dangerous, and From the Summer of Love to the Winter of Our Incontinence. It's funny. It's smart. Clean and uplifting, even. A unique theatrical event delivered with stand-up timing and not less than a modicum of poetry

Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists, Will Durst has patched together a comedy quilt of a career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice-overs and stand-up into a riotous patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. Author of three books, Durst has told jokes in fourteen countries, racked up over 800 television appearances, released 5 CDs and despite blistering reproach, continues to squeeze ketchup on his hot dog.
