Arj Barker in 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.
Arj Barker returns! Since his last New Zealand appearance Arj has been touring constantly, both solo and with his old pals, The Flight of The Conchords. He returns to the 2013 NZ International Comedy Festival 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 our favourite American comedian. In recent years, he has spent more time down under than his own country 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 thumbtack, if there was one of those.
‘A true alchemist who takes observations and transmutes them into comedy gold...’ Independent on Sunday, London

‘If comedians are the new rock stars, then Arj Barker is stand-up's Dave Grohl’ The Age
