Arj Barker in ORGANIC
After reigning in the wild talent with hosting finesse at the Best Foods Comedy Ga-la, funny man Arj Barker will be spreading his wings and serving up his wholesome show ORGANIC to the rest of the Aotearoa with a 9-centre nation-wide tour. Satisfy your ravenous hunger for some quality comedy with the free-range goodness that ORGANIC is set to deliver around the country from September 7 – 16, 2018.
When he’s not on stage, Arj is on screen with numerous appearances on late night talk shows including David Letterman and Conan O’Brian, his own specials, and is well known for his sup-porting actor role as Dave alongside Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement in the hit HBO se-ries Flight of the Conchords.
From an accurate depiction of just why Uber has revolutionised everyday travel, to the dark thoughts that arise from living with your other half, to the undisputable failings of fad diets, Arj takes the typical out of the everyday and turns it into the extraordinary on stage, with his trade-mark delivery, charm and satire drenched disposition.
His cruelty-free jokes are always tested on animals, and 100% goat-approved by the time you hear them. That’s the kind of quality you can trust in a comedy show. *
Born and raised in California, Arj has a worldwide following that has seen him perform in Holland, Sweden, Norway, USA, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
Organic is both insightful and pointed, like a mind-reading thumb tack (if there was one of those), these shows are not to be missed.
*may contain traces of nuts.
“On-point delivery and irresistible charm, it’s clear to see why he continues to sell out.”
