"Hugely enjoyable..a ton of great stories..one to watch.." The Guardian

Loveable Geordie Barry charms audiences with his unique brand of disarming wit and wry, down-to-earth observational humour.

Self-confessed comedy geek, Barry took to the comedy stage at the tender age of 21 and soon had audiences eating out of the palm of his hand. Using his own combination of irrepressibly cheeky, and surprisingly dark, material, he quickly found himself taking the national comedy circuit by storm.

He was a finalist in Jimmy Carr’s high profile competition ┬áComedy Idol and his twinkly eyed and playful demeanour means that he can flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more controversial.
