On Sunday evening, at his alma mater, Michel Barrett will present what he announced on his latest run: The humor of my life. The comedian will take advantage of this visit to the city of hospitality to bring Bar le 25 back to life for a few hours.

Yes, it will be sentimental, that’s for sure. There, I don’t really realize it because I used to be on stage for 40 years. But tonight (Sunday), that’s when I realize it’s the end of what I call it Offers written. That this is the last time I will appear on stage with A.J Displays existing and the rest is improvisation […] I think I’ll catch somethingpointed out.
Le Bar le 25 means a lot to anyone celebrating their 40-year career. This is where it all began for Michelle Barrett. In addition to being a regular customer of the venue, he made his improvisation debut between the walls of the bar on Saint Joseph Street.
I had my best moments in my late teens and early twenties. Then, I thought to myself it would be nice to recreate the pub on the 25th one evening after my show at the Alma. The gang there immediately stepped up.
Samuel Gingras, manager at Café du Clocher, explains that the idea to revive memories of the legendary Alma Bar was born around a meal.
Michelle came to dinner. He was chatting with Maurice Villeneuve from a café. They brought back fond memories from the 25th. He told me, “After my show, we can have people relive the 25th for one night.”He says
