Description

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.
