Marco Gliori is one of Australia’s premier performers of Bush Verse.

Marco Gliori is one of Australia's most highly regarded Poets and Story Tellers. A unique spoken word artist and multi-award winning Poet, Marco writes and performs his original verse, anecdotes, and stand-up comedy routines, engaging and inspiring audiences across Australia.

Marco's authentic working class background, his sense of community and empathy for the characters that inspire him, complimented by a wicked and sometimes warped sense of humour, allow him to create an atmosphere of mateship accompanied by a big slice of respect for those who have gone before us.

Whether hosting a corporate event, providing hilarious after-dinner entertainment, co-ordinating festival shows or working with students of all ages through school performances and workshops, Marco is as versatile as a Rugby League playing former Queensland Detective of Italian heritage can be!

The funniest and most inspirational people I have met will never grace a stage, what a privilege it is to write about them, to share their stories
