The tickets were complementary, but there was a 2 drink minimum at the venue. Not a surprise, but some people forget to bring their wallets.

There is limited choices for Bar Food inside the theater. So for a better meal, go to other restaurants in Bel Sqr. Or in the Bldg. at Lincoln Sqr. They require two Drink Min. or food purchase. They also won't provide tap water for Free in the show area. You have to buy the expensive bottled water.

Three comics. Arj is the 3rd. First was fun. Second not so good. Arj is polished and excellent.

“An intelligent, droll comic with a dark turn of thought and a fantastic, disturbing stage persona.” The Age (Melbourne)
Check out Arj Barker’s website.


Arj Barker has appeared on several television comedy shows since his 1997 appearance on Premium Blend. Most of his appearances are late-night shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Glass House. He has had his own Comedy Central Presents episode on two occasions, first on 20th September, 2000 and again on 31st March, 2006. He also has appeared on the Australian show, Thank God You’re Here on 18th October, 2006 and the 19th September, 2007 (the latter of which he won).

Barker also co-wrote The Marijuana-Logues, an off-Broadway show currently showing in New York – the title is a parody of production The Vagina Monologues. Doug Benson and Tony Camin also wrote the play, and all three perform in it as the original cast.

NBC had given him the lead role for Nearly Nirvana, a sitcom originally scheduled for fall 2004. However, Barker was replaced in the lead role by the show’s creator, Ajay Sahgal, and then the show never aired.

Arj Barker also appeared in the HBO sitcom Flight of the Conchords, as Dave, Bret and Jemaine’s friend, whom they meet after moving to New York.
