AdvertisementBack by popular demand – The best of Arj Barker: Power Hour.
What do you get when you take your very best jokes from over the last 30 years, lovingly restore, refine and remaster each one, jam them all into a single hour, and finally, sprinkle in some brand-new material with a hint of improv? You get the best of Arj Barker. Also known as Power Hour.
Arguably Australia’s favourite American comedian, in recent years Arj Barker has spent more time in our country than his own 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 thumb tack, if there were one of those.
Arj has gained major international exposure from his role as ‘Dave’ on HBO’s Flight of the Concords. This, as well as dozens of appearances on popular Aussie TV shows like the original Hey Hey It’s Saturday (yep, he’s been coming here for a while) Thank God You’re Here, The Glasshouse, Good News Week, Rove Live, The Project, Talkin’ 'Bout My Generation, Spicks and Specks, The Great Debate and of course the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Arj has become a household name in Australia. He was also the very first guest ever to appear on Gordon St. Tonight with Adam Hills, and nobody can ever take that away from him, no matter what happens.
In his home country (well, country of birth at least), Arj has appeared regularly as a guest on many popular shows including those hosted by David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O’Brian, Jimmy Kimmel and Bill Maher. He has also had three of his very own comedy specials on Comedy Central.
