CARL BARRON, arguably the most successful and accomplished comedy performer in Australia, is to return to New Zealand this April/May bringing his hugely successful new stand up show Drinking with a Forkto theatres in Hamilton, Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington and Christchurch.

For established fans and for those yet to become familiar with Barron’s wry observational style of humour and impeccable physical comedy, this show promises to be a real treat.

Barron’s unique storytelling style allows him to expertly mine his own life and childhood for comic gems. He was born in Longreach, Queensland, the son of a sheep shearer from the outback and worked as a roof-tiler for 13 years before he moved into comedy and became a national icon with millions of fans worldwide.

In July 2016 Ticketmaster, the largest ticket sales company in the world, rated Barron as Australia’s most popular comedian and as the third most popular comedian worldwide, based on sales of his stand up shows. He is also the highest selling stand-up comedian on DVD in Australian retail history and his last tour sold over 300,000 tickets in his homeland alone.

A firm favourite of the New Zealand Comedy Festival ‘Drinking with a Fork’ will give repeat attenders and those who aren’t yet aware of the charismatic stand up phenomenon that is Carl Barron, a chance to discover one of the most accomplished and engaging performers of his generation.
