Issue Were Here - (1999)

Standup comedian Arj Barker is co-writer of the off-Broadway show the Marijuana-Logues and a regular on the HBO sitcom Flight of the Conchords. Born Arjun Singh and raised in San Anselmo, CA, Arj originally tried performing standup comedy on a dare. Falling in love with it, he became a regular on the West Coast comedy circuit and toured the U.K. and Australia before his breakthrough came in 1997 with an appearance on the Comedy Central show Premium Blend. Arj became a frequent guest of the late-night talk show circuit soon after, and released his debut comedy album, Issue Were Here, in 1999. His own Comedy Central Presents episode aired a year later, and then in 2004 came the off-Broadway premiere of the Marijuana-Logues, a parody of the Vagina Monologues Arj had written with Doug Benson and Tony Camin. In 2007, he joined the cast of the Flight of the Conchords television series, playing the Conchords’ American friend Devjeet "Dave" Mohumbhai. Three years later, he signed with the Warner Bros. record label and released his second album, LYAO. (
