Will Durst – BoomeRaging From LSD To OMG (Will Durst / Gilded Balloon)

Will Durst

The baby boomers, or as US export Will Durst likes to puts it “the original YOLOs”: the comedian offers an observational look at the developments of that particular generation, from the ‘glory’ years, to the disasters and then, to what most of them are up to now… “trying to fight off the instinctual groan as they lift off their armchairs”. As you might infer from the title, this piece has an obvious demographic, and sadly the jokes do not always resonate with everyone in the room. Durst is in a relatively large (100+) venue, and not many to fill it on the night I was in attendance, but he pulled through: he has charisma, charm and resilience, and produces friendly if modest laughter throughout the show.

Gilded Balloon, until 31 Aug.
