Carl Barron appearing at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre

‘Drinking with a Fork’ presented by ALIST.COM.AU, to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) on Saturday, 21 January 2017.  After making over 300,000 Australian’s laugh on his last tour and taking a year off to star in his first feature film, Carl is set to break that record again on this tour – already eclipsing all previous ticket sales in each of the towns and cities he’s returned to so far. He is still the nation’s highest selling stand-up comedian on DVD in Australian retail history. The third most popular comedian worldwide, according to a recent Ticketmaster survey, Carl is set to blend structure with chance in his new show, or as he likes to call it – drinking with a fork. Barron said in his typically humble way, “I don’t really know what to make of all that stuff. Percentages and this and that. I just like making people laugh.  His non-threatening observational style of comedy and original approach is simply genius, enabling him to effortlessly touch the hearts of every audience.  After headlining at every major comedy venue and festival worldwide, don’t miss your opportunity to see one of our countries great comedic minds at work as he presents an evening of stand up with a bit of guitar.  This is the second time the GCCEC will welcome Barron, with his last appearance a sell-out in 2012. Tickets on sale to the public Friday, 11 November via Ticketek from $59.95 plus booking fee. Recommended for 18+.]]>
