CARL Barron's two Gladstone shows have sold out.

THE phones are running hot and people have queued at the door at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre for tickets to Carl Barron's February show.
Interest in Australia's highest selling stand-up comedian has been so strong that a second Gladstone show has been added to Barron's Drinking with a Fork tour.
The first Gladstone show was announced before Christmas and quickly sold out.
GECC marketing and sales supervisor Roger John said it was one of their best selling shows for the year.
"People have literally been queuing up to get tickets as soon as they heard the second show was announced," Mr John said.
"Comedy is definitely one of our focuses here because these shows always attract the crowd." More than 300,000 Australians bought tickets to Barron's shows on his last tour.
Already he has broken previous ticket sales in every town he has returned to.
In July, a Ticketmaster survey found that Barron was Australia's most popular comedian and the third most popular comedian in the world.
"I don't really know what to make of all that stuff ... I just like making people laugh," Barron said.
