South Coast: Events

Arj Barker: Organic (Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre)

As always, he starts with the finest free-range topics, nurtures them until they're brimming with wholesome hilarity, and ready for the tellin'. Remember, his cruelty-free jokes are always tested on animals, and 100% goat-approved by the time you hear them. That's quality you can trust.

*May contain traces of nuts.

Arj Barker is arguably Australia's favourite American comedian. In recent years, he has spent more time in this country than his own and has come to understand the culture perhaps better than Australians understand it themselves. His stand-up is both insightful and pointed, like a mind-reading thumb tack, if there was one of those.
