Arj Intestine 

Wednesday, Aug 7 2013

Fans of the HBO show Flight of the Conchords TV show likely remember Arj Barker as friend-of-the-band Dave, teaching Jermaine and Bret about the ways of the world. In real life, Barker, who hails from the Bay Area, is a long-time standup with a wry, observational style of humor. And, uncommon to most comedians, he's a handsome fellow. Yet said handsomeness doesn't distract from his absurdist jokes. Even more fortunately, he's returning to his home turf for a string of shows at Cobb's this week. He's huge in Australia and New Zealand, big in Europe, and he's gaining a following stateside as well, having appeared on Letterman and The Tonight Show and having performed with other FOTC alums Kristen Schaal and Eugene Mirman. Barker's also known for co-creating The Marijuana-logues, an Off-Broadway parody of the vagina-related production of a similar name.

Arj Barker performs at 7:30 p.m. and also Friday at 8 and 10:15 p.m. and Saturday at 7:30 and 9:45 p.m.
