Comedian Arj Barker is scheduled to perform July 7 – 9 at Acme Comedy Company, 708 North 1st Street, Minneapolis, MN 55401. Barker is everything smart comedy lovers adore. He starts with simple observations and then takes a clever angle that make other comics mumble, “Why didn’t I think of that?” No one is sure just how he thinks up the things he does – but his audience is sure glad that he does.
Barker is an American stand-up comedian with Sikh-Indian and European heritage. He is developing a huge following in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and all over the world.
Barker calls himself a mini star. His fans and critics think he will soon be a comedy and film mega star. His credits include HBO’s Flight of the Conchords as “Dave”, co-writer for The Marijuana-Logues, appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Glass House, Comedy Central Presents and Premium Blend. He has appeared in feature films including: Shooting the Past (1998), Purpose (2002), Carbabes (2005, role of Jimmy), Electric Apricot: The Quest.
