ARJ BARKER – Go Time
The lights dim. The music fades. The audience applauds with anticipation. Or they just get alarmingly quiet. Every show you've ever done leads up to this point. But this is the only show that matters now. Have you got the goods, kid? They're about to find out. It's Go Time.
Since his last Australian tour in 2011, Arj has been touring constantly, both solo and with his old pals, The Flight of The Conchords. He returns to Australia with his brand new show, Go Time. According to Arj, Go Time is both "what audiences expect from me AND the last thing they expect from me, which if my calculations are correct, will make for a great show."
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.
‘A true alchemist who takes observations and transmutes them into comedy gold...’ Independent on Sunday, London
‘Slick, talented & completely in control’ Scotland Times
‘If comedians are the new rock stars, then Arj Barker is stand-up's Dave Grohl’ The Age
