Comedian Arj Barker, Busy in Tours, Resides in Australia With Girlfriend
Arj Barker, an American comedian, is known for his intelligence and humor. His stand-up comedy is what makes him famous, and he occasionally acts too. Besides, there might be confusion amongst his fans regarding his birthplace (country); as he tours so much around the world.
His immense popularity and fan following has dragged him overseas for performances; mostly Australia and New Zealand.

During one of his tours in Australia, Barker met Bret McKenzie, @bretmckenzie3, and Jemaine Clement @AJemaineClement, who are comedians from New Zealand. After he had appeared in a couple of their shows, he was loved by the Australian viewers. Since then, he has been doing frequent shows there.
Apart from shows in Europe, he has also performed in South America and Asia. Also, he has got several shows lined up for coming months and if you are fan of him and his work, you might not want to miss out on them and see him anywhere near you.
Residing in Australia with Girlfriend?
Although his fans have a huge interest in his personal life, there is not much news on whether he is married or not. There have been reports of him having a girlfriend and living with her in Australia. There has been no news about him having a wife so far, though as he has kept things personal and far from public knowledge which is fair enough as celebs usually do not tend to leak any private information to the public. So we might have to wait for any sort of information coming from his end in the future.
However, in an interview in 2011, he said;
"A few years ago when my girlfriend (at the time) and I ran into Matthew McConaughey at a resort near Port Douglas in Australia. I guess I was a little star-struck. My girlfriend was over the fucking moon though. I’d never seen her that happy up to that point, which was a bit troubling."
Also, this video shall help shed more light on it.

@arjbarker I'm so happy that New York has legalised gay marriage. They make such a perfect couple. ;-)— Damien Baumgart (@LowmanX) August 3, 2011
