Arj Barker is arguably Australia’s favourite American comedian.
In recent years, he has spent more time in our country than his own and has come to understand our culture perhaps better than we understand it ourselves. His stand-up is both insightful and pointed, like a mind-reading thumb tack, if there was one of those.
Arj has made numerous appearances on late night talk shows including Letterman and Conan O’Brien, as well as his own half hour special on HBO produced by Comedy Central. Arj played a starring role as ‘Dave’ on HBO’s hit series ‘Flight of the Conchords’ and has also appeared on Bill Maher’s Last Comic Standing and Multiple “Just for Laughs” Comedy Galas.
Arj is also a favourite on Australian TV having appeared on “Thank God You’re Here”, “Rove”, “Spicks and Specks”, “Good News Week”, “The 7pm Project”, “Talkin ‘bout Your Generation”, “Have You Been Paying Attention”, “The Footy Show” as well as numerous Melbourne International Comedy Festival Galas.
How does Arj prepare for a Gladstone Show?
As always, I start with the finest free-range topics, nurture them until they’re brimming with wholesome hilarity, and ready for the tellin’. Remember, my cruelty-free jokes are ALWAYS tested on animals, and 100% goat-approved by the time you hear them. That’s quality you can trust. *may contain traces of nuts
