Carl Barron's Rockhampton show a quick sellout

CARL Barron may be Rocky's favourite comedian.

That's judging by the news that the stand-up comic was confirmed as holding the record for the fastest-selling adult show in the history of the Pilbeam Theatre.

His show in Rockhampton on February 17 next year was announced at 9am on Tuesday and it had sold out within hours, prompting the promoter to announce a second performance on February 19 - which sold out yesterday afternoon.

A third show is now on sale for February 20.

In July a Ticketmaster survey into the comedy industry revealed Barron to be Australia's most popular comedian and the third most popular comedian world-wide.

"I don't really know what to make of all that stuff. Percentages and this and that. I just like making people laugh," Barron said.

He is still Australia's highest selling stand-up comedian on DVD.

Be there for a night where Carl blends structure with chance, or as he likes to call it - drinking with a fork.
