Arj Barker (USA) Let Me Do The Talking
Packed theatre? Relax. I’ll handle this. You just sit back and do what you do best - listen, laugh and look good. Luckily for us, I’ve been in this situation before, and although it’s never easy, it’s nothing a nearly entirely new hour of classics won’t handle! And remember friend, if things get too dicey out there, I can always whip out my guitar.
Arj Barker is back…….
Barker who won the coveted Perrier Best Newcomer Award in 1997 has firmly established himself as one of the golden boys on the international comedy circuit. He performed massive sell out seasons this year at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, followed by a four month tour around regional Australia. Arj Barker is the Hot ticket!
Arj has made numerous appearances on late night talk shows, including the Letterman and Conan O'Brian shows, as well as starring in his own Comedy Central half hour special on the HBO. He is a favourite on Australian TV having appeared in Thank God You're Here, Rove, Spicks & Specks, Good News Week, 7pm Project and Talkin 'Bout Your Generation. Arj also stars as "Dave" in Seasons 1 & 2 of the HBO Smash Hit Flight of the Concords.
Australia’s adopted son of comedy is back by popular demand! Get in quick. This is world-class comedy.
