Enjoy a night of quality Arj-y bargy
"AS ALWAYS, I start with only the finest free-range topics, and nurture them until they're brimming with wholesome hilarity, and ready for the tellin'.
"And 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.”
And so the conversation goes about Arj Barker's latest show Get In My Head.
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.
So what's this show about? Who knows? Barker included, but hop on in and let's ride this together he insists.
"There's plenty of room in here. Join me and together we'll contemplate everything from the social evolution of humanity, to the intriguing and elusive nature of non-sexually derived boners.
"I'll even mention fondue at some point, and that's a promise. So take a load off your mind and get into mine already.”
You have been warned.
Don't miss Arj Barker's Get In My Head tour when it arrives at Grafton's Saraton Theatre on September 3. Tickets are on sale at the theatre or on its website.
