I’d hoped to have a funny take on current California politics (and aren’t all California politics both current and funny? That bear on the state flag ought to be riding a bicycle), but it just couldn’t happen. In spite of comedian, commentator, author, pundit and political shoofly Will Durst’s willingness to do an interview in advance of his May 8 local show, I was stricken by a bug of indeterminate origin and out of commission for a week (hey, when you go to see the doctor and she calls an ambulance, you’re really sick). But just in case you’re dying for some seriously funny takes on contemporary California life and politics, catch Durst’s Lieutenant Governor From the State of Confusion show on Saturday, 8 p.m., at the Crest Theatre. Tickets are $25 at and at the Crest box office.
