Carl Barron announces UK date

Australia's most successful live comedian

Carl Barron, one of Australia’s biggest live comedy stars, is to make a rare visit to the UK.

The comic has announced a one-off gig at London's Hammersmith Apollo for March 3 next year for his stand-up show  Drinking with a Fork. 

He was born in Queensland, the son of a sheep shearer from the Outback and worked as a roof-tiler for 13 years before he moved into comedy. 

Last year, Ticketmaster, named Barron as Australia’s most popular comedian and as the third most popular comedian worldwide, based on sales of his stand up shows. 

His last tour sold more than 300,000 tickets down under – and he is also the highest selling stand-up comedian on DVD in Australian retail history.

Here’s a clip in which he observes that ‘thong’ means a different thing in Australian than elsewhere.

Tickets for the London show go on sale on Friday.
