Forge Creek: Events

Arj Barker: Organic (The Forge Theatre and Arts Hub)


'As always, I start with the finest free-range topics, nurture them until they're brimming with wholesome hilarity, and ready for the tellin'. Remember, my 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 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 was one of those.
