The show


What do you get when you take your very best jokes from over the last 30 years, lovingly restore, refine and remaster each one, jam them all into a single hour, and finally, sprinkle in some brand new material and hint of improv? You get the best of Arj Barker. Also known as…

Power Hour.

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.

“On-point delivery and irresistible charm, it’s clear to see why he continues to sell out” ★★★★ Herald Sun

“Arj has a way with words that leaves no word wasted, taking an approach that works well on paper, yet is taken to another level when performed by Arj in his trademark style.” Scenestr

“A must see for anyone who loves a laugh…” ★★★★ Adelaide now

“A true alchemist who takes observations and transmutes them into comedy gold…” Independent on Sunday, London

“Slick, talented and completely in control” Scotland Times
