Artword Artbar, at 15 Colbourne Street, is two blocks from where Charly grew up. Ron and Judith, who run the Artbar, produced and directed the first productions of Cu’Fu in their Toronto theatre, where it was filmed for Bravo Television. Charly has performed Cu’Fu across Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver, from his home town Hamilton to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories — and in Italy, in Italian. The Edmonton Journal called him “the Sicilian Spalding Gray, or the Hamilton Mark Twain”.
