Arj Barker: New and Improved (USA)

Dave from Flight of the Conchords is Coming to NZ

Arj Barker crosses the pond to debut in New Zealand; after a sell out season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne Comedy Festival 2008. Armed with some new classics and some classic classics, Barker takes over the Crunchie Comedy Chamber and San Francisco Bathhouse to present one funny hour.

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 and clubs all around the world. He has made numerous appearances on late night talk shows, including David Letterman and Conan O'Brian alongside starring in his own half hour special on the HBO produced by Comedy Central.

Arj is also a regular favorite on Australian and New Zealand screens too, appearing regularly on “Thank God You‘re Here”, “The Glass House”, “Rove” and, of course, the Grammy Award winning “Flight of the Conchords.”

Arj has performed numerous seasons at Edinburgh Fringe plus starred in Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival and Amsterdam's English Speaking Comedy Festival and followed this up with the six month Off Broadway season of 'The Marijuana-Logues', a show he wrote with fellow comedians Doug Benson and Tony Camin.

If you don't laugh your ass off, there's something wrong with you! (In other words, don't ask for your money back.)

Get it quick as this is world-class comedy. He will certainly sell out, so come see him while he still has integrity!

Visit to submerge yourself into his world beforehand.
