I laughed, I cried, I laughed til I cried. It is a great thing when grey hairs have something fun to go out at night for and then actually go out. The space was full and the grey hairs ruled the night. As usual, Will Durst's show have a touch...continued

It was an ok, extended standup. He didn't do anything that provoked serious thought, which was disappointing.

4 of us went to the opening night of Boomeraging and I don't know which one of us laughed more. A totally delightful evening. I'd recommend this to anyone especially any boomers out there.

Go! Will is so good - intelligent, very funny, even touching. Never miss a chance to see him.

We had previously seen Will perform at the Marsh with his "Elect to Laugh" show which was really good. Last night, the spark just wasn't there. The jokes were funny, but somehow not inspiring. Judging from the reviews for other nights, maybe last...continued

Will was excellent as always, but although the show was funny and nostalgic, it was also kind of depressing for us Boomers. By the way, if you're not a Boomer, the references in the show might leave you feeling lost.

Will Durst is a legend. His social commentary on growing up, moving to S.F., aging, and politics was very funny and pertinent. This was the first time my wife and I were able to see him in person and we were not disappointed. If you get a...continued

Really enjoyed the show being a baby boomer myself. Related so much to Will's funny observations and reflections on life.

Funny, timely and very well presented. Will has a great sense of the absurd in every day life.

Really 3.5 stars. There were moments that dragged interspersed with really clever, laugh-inducing moments. Definitely brings back nostalgia for the days of rabbit-ear TV antennas before remote controls. Would see him again and can recommend this...continued

Enjoyed him tremendously. I saw him before the election at the Marsh and he was funny but last night he outdid himself. The audience was in stitches. I would certainly attend another of his shows.

Dead on laugh-at-yourself humor for boomers. Durst is a master of comedy.

What a GREAT show! Very funny -- I was in tears from laughing. Will took us on a wonderful journey down memory lane. Everyone over the age of 50 should go!

We've seen Will Durst two or three times before, and it's always a great experience. Previous appearances were on politics, so BoomerAging was new for us and he performed it very well and established an excellent connection with the audience. We...continued

Funny, poignant and insightful. Will had the audience laughing, remembering and thinking at the same time. Even the non-boomers appreciated his wisdom about life and aging.
