It seems legendary Aussie comedian Carl Barron can’t stay away from Penrith Panthers, but we can assure you this will be his fifth and final local outing of this tour – so make sure you don’t miss it.
Carl Barron started his stand-up career back in 1993 but shot to fame in 1997 with his first ever television appearance on ‘The NRL Footy Show’.
Carl said before that memorable appearance he never really had the desire to be on television.
“From ’93 to ’97, I was doing my trade on the Sydney pub circuit and just didn’t think I was good enough for TV,” he said.
“I was interested in making people laugh but I never had a burning passion to be famous or anything like that and I still don’t.”
Carl’s first four shows earlier this year at Panthers sold out very quickly, therefore a fifth show had to added to the calendar to keep up with Carl’s ever growing popularity.
“It’s a funny thing because I’d be lying if I said that I was totally surprised that my shows sell-out because it’s been really good for a while now, I guess I’ll never get 100% used to it,” Carl said.
“I just feel grateful mostly because each time a show sells out I just can’t believe all these people come to see me.”
Catch Carl Barron on his ‘One Ended Stick Tour’ at Penrith Panthers tonight Friday, June 1 at 8pm.
