What happens when a group of poets laureate get together for an evening? A lot of rhyming, one would imagine.

What happens when a group of six poets laureate get together?
A whole lot of rhyming and alliteration, for sure.
And if you want to see for yourself, you can, this evening at Willistead Manor.
The event is called Poetry at the Manor. It was organized by Windsor's own poet laureate, Marty Gervais.
Marty is with me in the studio this afternoon.
Also with us is Bruce Meyer. He is the poet laureate of Barrie, Ontario and is one of the poets taking part in tonight's event.

A very funny guy is coming to the Chrysler theatre tomorrow night ....all the way from Australia.

Joe Avati could be called the most well known comedian you've never heard of.
Well, that might be true elsewhere but Windsor knows Joe Avati.
He's been here before from his native Australia. And I guess he enjoyed himself a great deal because he's coming back.Joe Avati is on a Canadian tour with a stop in Windsor on Saturday . It's my pleasure to welcome Joe Avati to the Bridge from our studio's in Calgary.
