Arj Barker

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.

Shit-Faced Shakespeare : Hamlet

Shit-Faced Shakespeare is the hilarious blend of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced actor. What could possibly go right? With a genuinely inebriated cast member chosen each night, no two shows are ever the same in this raucous, riotous, rampage through Shakespeare's greatest tragedy: Hamlet.

The Distraction

It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen, and nothing they’ve ever done, and it will blow your mind way more literally than you are expecting.

Kitty Flanagan in conversation about 488 Rules for Life

It's like Book Club but funny. And best of all, you don't have to read the book first.
