His first gigs were at an old café called Caffe Nuvo in downtown San Anselmo where he hosted stand-up night every Sunday throughout the early 1990s.

He twice hosted Comedy Central Presents, first in 2000 and again in 2006. Barker was featured in Comedy Central's animated series Shorties Watchin' Shorties. He appeared on the Australian hit show Thank God You're Here in 2006, 2007 and 2009.
Barker co-wrote and performed in The Marijuana-Logues, an Off-Broadway show in New York City, with Doug Benson and Tony Camin.
Barker appeared in the HBO sitcom Flight of the Conchords, playing Bret and Jemaine's indifferent friend Dave.
