Carl Barron will be dropping in to the Clarence Valley
THE people have spoken and Carl Barron is on his way to Grafton to perform at the Saraton Theatre on August 8.
After an intensive Facebook campaign, the theatre and his Clarence fans have won over the attention of the comedian's management, and quite possibly Carl himself, who have included a Grafton show in Barron's latest tour Drinking with a Fork.
The Daily Examiner also supported Valley residents in their campaigns to bring Carl Barron to the region as evidenced in Saturday's article.
Barron's manager Artie Laing said because of the intense interest shown by fans on the North Coast and the Clarence, they pulled out all stops to ensure the comedian was free to do a handful of extra shows in the area (three shows in Lismore had already sold out).
After making more than 300,000 Australians laugh on his last tour and taking a year off to star in his first feature film Manny Lewis, Carl is coming to Grafton to perform live for the very first time.
Mr Laing said this was a great opportunity to see one of our country's great comedic minds at work as he presents an evening of stand up with a bit of guitar. "It's a night where Carl blends structure with chance, or as he likes to call it - drinking with a fork."
There will be an announcement soon about when tickets will go on sale.
