Biography

TOPICS: MC, COMEDY

Comedian Arj Barker combines observational comedy with deadpan absurdism to create a brand of comedy that’s somewhere between Jim Gaffigan and Mitch Hedberg.

His onstage persona is that of a person with the conviction of his own ignorance – always certain, but rarely right.

Arj has performed on ‘Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ (1992), ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ (1993), ‘Late Night with Conan O’Brien’ (1993) and ‘Rove Live’ (2000) just to name a few.

Arj has also performed stand-up comedy in a number of countries, including the US, Australia, England, and Sweden.

In 1997 he won the Perrier Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Arj is based in Sydney, but travels Australia wide.
