8:00 pm Thursday August 11 SOLD OUT
Opening Night: Charles Demers, Zarqa Nawaz and Bill Richardson
Laughter is the best medicine, or as Jimmy Buffet put it: “If we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane.” So, in order to keep you healthy and sane and in a good mood for the rest of Festival 34, we have arranged for three natural born comics to get you laughing. We already have funny man Charles Demers on the program (see event #10) and funny lady Zarqa Nawaz on the schedule (see event #4). All we need is someone to coax out their funniest funniness. Who better than that master of drollery, Bill Richardson, author of a couple of dozen books and host of a half-dozen CBC radio programs. His latest book is The First Little Bastard to Call Me Gramps: Poems of the Late Middle Ages.
