THE RYDGES POST
He’s funny, shy, gentle, slightly awkward, funny, skinny, balding, small, original, observant, wicked and funny. He’s Carl Barron, the somewhat reluctant comic genius with immaculate timing.
Carl grew up in Longreach in Queensland, the son of a shearer. He moved to the Gold Coast and became a roof-tiler. Then he moved to Sydney and, one night, he wandered onto the stage at the Harold Park Hotel and told the audience about how a bird had poo-ed on him. A comedic star was born.
