Arj Barker Free Range Comic

Arj Barker Free Range Comic!

Mary Tobin Presents….NZ Tour 2018

Thursday 17 May 2018 at The Opera House in Wellington

Friday 18th May and Saturday 19 May 2018 at SKYCITY Theatre in Auckland


Starting with the finest free-range topics, nurturing them until they’re brimming with wholesome hilarity, and ready for the tellin’, Arj Barker (aka Dave from Flight of The Conchords) returns to the NZ International Comedy Festival, with his hysterical chemical compound of a show, ORGANIC playing 17 May 2018 at The Opera House in Wellington, and 18 & 19 May 2018 at SKYCITY Theatre in Auckland.

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 supporting actor role alongside Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement in the hit HBO series 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 trademark 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.”
– Herald Sun

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
