Charlie was actually one of my profs for a Creative Writing course at UBC this past term. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend a three hour class than with a comedian.
Vancouver Special is a collection of essays about our beloved city, ranging from topics such as the Police, Racism, Politics, Transportation, Sports, and many more.
Charlie’s unique voice shines through each piece, and even though I was pretty much raised in Vancouver, I have to say that now I feel woefully ignorant about Vancouver. His connections to people provide meaningful (and often funny) anecdotes that colour an already impressive array of knowledge about Vancouver’s history and future.
Hats off to you, Charlie, hoping we’ll meet again some day.
