Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Arj Barker The Mind Field (United States)

Mary Tobin Presents...

Arj Barker The Mind Field (USA)

All of reality – at least to the extent that we can ever know it - exists exclusively in our conscious awareness. In other words, in our mind.

Armed with this fascinating revelation, Arj sets out to answer some of Life’s Biggest Questions:

Why are we here? 
Are we alone in the universe?
Why does it hurt when we pee?

You’ll laugh and you’ll learn (possibly too much) but you’ll never look at anything the same, once you enter … The Mind Field

Having spent more time in our country than his own, Australia’s funniest adopted Californian has come to understand our culture perhaps even better than we do ourselves. He bloody well better, mate! This funny bugger has appeared all over Aussie TV, including the original Hey Hey It’s Saturday (yep, he’s been coming here for a while).

2024 is shaping up to be a big year for young Arj, as launches his hilarious new live stand-up show, The Mind Field, in venues across the country, and also appears in his first lead role in a feature film. The Nut Farm will release in cinemas across Australia and New Zealand on March 14.
