Getting to know….Carl Barron

The first in our “getting to know the comedian” series…we’re going to try and wrangle an interview out of one of our comedians each week, just for you guys! 


Getting to know Carl Barron
(interview by Tegan Guthrie)

Tegan Guthrie: Do you get excited returning to the different towns around Australia?

Carl Barron: I don’t get excited about anything. You’ve seen me, I’ve seen you, we’re old friends catching up for a spoon. It’s very UnAustralian to get excited.

TG: When you stumbled onto that stage at the Harold Park Hotel did you ever think you would end up as popular as you are? Did you set out to be a comedian in your life or did it just happen?

CB: I always saw myself as a comedian. Who said I stumbled? I walked. 

TG: Is being a comedian as easy as it looks?

CB: Definitely not, that’s the trick. If you look closely into the eyes of any comic you will see terror. That funny face you see on the poster is pure fright. Understand this: we’re shitting ourselves out there. 

TG: How do you come up with your material?

CB: There is this guy that I model my stuff on. I follow him around, record what he thinks and feels about the world around him and then I repeat it on stage. The guy happens to be me. 

TG: A lot of people say it’s hard to be friends with a comedian, would you say this is true?

CB: I think it’s hard to be friends with people who say those kinds of things…

TG: What is one of the weirdest things you have had a fan say or do to you?

CB: That’s my problem I don’t find anything that weird, I find everything normal. So I challenge you people to say something that will shock me, I bet you can’t. 

TG: Why A One Ended Stick?

CB: Because it has 5 syllables. I like 5. Plus people actually try and imagine a stick without the other end!

Welcome to 2006. Our scene takes place in Darwin Australia, specifically at the location of the Australia’s Secret Space Mission. This Mission was established in 1989, when a young scientist named Benson discovered that there was a way to launch a manned space mission to the planet Pluto. In 1989 the mission was launched, with a target of hitting Pluto in 2006.  With an  20 year time span, this mission was going to be the most mentally intense mission ever attempted by a human. Two astronauts, both having broke up from long-term relationships chose to accept this task. The spaceship, amongst other luxuries, could handle the digital storage of 14 songs. The songs would have to be timeless and inspirational - and great care was taken to allow equal weighting to the suggestions of all those at the Space Mission. However, due to the strain on personal relationships caused by the mission, and the proximity of the launch coincided with the release of the 1989 album ‘But Seriously…’, it came to pass that the 14 precious places were filled with a collection of Phil Collins Greatest Hits. Our story takes place 1 year before the intended landing, where our heroes, Xavier and Jared sit patiently, having cycled through Phil Collins back catalogue a staggering 93,000 times, awaiting their landing on the planet furthest from the Sun - Pluto. The exact time when it is discovered that Pluto is no longer a planet.

Since the dawn of time, man has questioned the origin and meaning of his existence. Work? Relationships? Justin Beiber? So stop asking why, and start asking how? How can I prove to the world that I was right and it was wrong, and that it can go and suck a leaky bag of “I told you so”?
Heath Franklin brings his award winning alter-ego Chopper in A Hard Bastards Guide to Life, a comprehensive “hit list” on how not to just survive, but thrive in a modern world that thinks it’s better than it is. With Chopper’s step-by-step guide, you’ll learn how to punch life in the guts, take compromising photo’s of it’s wife and watch it cry as it hands over the keys to your future…
