Arj Barker

Armed with some new classics and some classic classics, Arj Barker makes his way to New Zealand for his very first regional tour presenting one very funny hour of stand-up.

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. For years he has been honing his craft at comedy festivals all around the world.

Best known for his role as ‘Dave’ from the Flight of the Concords show, this year he will host the NZ International Comedy Festival Gala. He has also made numerous appearances on late night talk shows, including the Letterman, Conan O'Brian shows, as well as starring in his own half hour special on HBO produced by Comedy Central. He is regularly seen on Aussie based TV shows including Spicks & Specs, Rove!, and Thank God You’re Here.

Arj has performed numerous seasons at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival plus starred in Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival and Amsterdam's English Speaking Comedy Festival. In 2010 Arj was the highest selling act at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and now tours that country to sell out theatre audiences.

If you don't laugh, there's something wrong with you! He will certainly sell fast, so come see him while he still has integrity!

"Criminally talented" - The Herald, Glasgow
“If comedians are the new rock stars, then Arj Barker is stand-up’s Dave Grohl” - The Age, Melbourne
“It’s a joy to spend an hour in his world” - The Adelaide Advertiser
