Flight of the Conchords’ Arj Barker Releases Debut Comedy Album LYAO Jan 26
January 5, 2010 – 7:48 am

On January 26, Warner Nashville/Degenerate Records will release Arj Barker’s debut comedy album LYAO. Arj, one of America’s most offbeat observational comics, has appeared on several television comedy shows in addition to his well-known and hilarious character “Dave” on the hit HBO show, Flight of the Conchords. Available on both CD/DVD and standalone DVD, LYAO will also debut as a Comedy Central special January 24.

Upcoming Tour Dates:

Jan 14 -16 Hyena’s Comedy Nightclub (Dallas, TX)

Jan 20 Washington & Lee University (Lexington, VA)
Jan 29 University of Wyoming (Laramie, WY)
Feb 4 – 6 Parlor Live (Bellevue, WA)

Warner Bros. Records/Degenerate Records comic Arj Barker releases his debut comedy album, LYAO, on Tuesday, Jan. 26, after the Comedy Central special debuts Sunday, Jan. 24. LYAO will be available on CD/DVD and standalone DVD.

In LYAO, which stands for “laugh your ass off,” Arj Barker pokes fun at controversial topics ranging from gay marriages and religion to global warming and losing Pluto as a planet. Barker also points out the constant misunderstandings faced through our growing technological advancements (each track name reflects a common communication abbreviation) which can easily be remedied through fonts that convey tone, such as “Sarcastica” and “Good Times Roman.”

Arj Barker is famously recognized for appearing as Dave, Bret and Jermaine’s friend on the HBO sitcom Flight of the Conchords and as a fifth season semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing. He has made appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno as well regularly headlining clubs in the US, UK and Australia. Barker has also appeared on Comedy Central Presents in 2000 and 2006, and Premium Blend.

CD / DVD Track Listing:

1. LOL
2. <3
3. WTF
4. GTFO
5. ROFL
6. HFS
7. SOS
8. LMAO
9. JK
10. HAHA
11. OMG
12. BFF

He didn't walk me home after the Seattle show, but I did wander the streets with him in search of a particular bar. :lol: The Bellevue venue really is within walking distance of my apartment, but there are much classier places to hang out in Bellevue than my humble abode, LOL. Hopefully my hunny will come with me this time, because I'd love for him to meet Arj. I'll definitely get pics!

That's great you'll be able to see him again, DaMango! You must share all the details of the show and perhaps hanging out with him after the show again! I'd like to see him live someday. He did say he may be coming over to the UK in the summer so I hope I'll be able to see him then. :)
