Aries Spears made a name for himself as one of MADtv's longest-serving original cast members. Known for his easy-going vibe and candid bits about race and culture, Spears has made frequent guest appearances on The Best Damn Sports Show Ever and a number of national talk shows. He got his stand-up start at the early age of 14 and landed a role in Spike Lee's Malcolm X a few years later. He's since starred in his own Comedy Central and Showtime specials and has consistently cracked up audiences with uncanny Bill Cosby, Red Foxx and Eddie Murphy impersonations. Learn More

Rhys Darby was hilarious! He spoke on topics everyone can relate to and can make any person laugh. We watched him on the HBO hit, Flight of the Concords. He is very skilled not only in one liners, jokes, but also visual and sound effects. My husband and I are still talking about how much fun we had there. Our cheeks did hurt from laughing and smiling, so if your date uses Botox, you might want to decide on another venue.
Rhys Darby first gained attention in the United States as Murray in HBO’s Flight of the Conchords. This was not a new role for him, having first appeared in the same role on the BBC radio show of the same name. An ex-soldier in the New Zealand Army and a veteran of ten years as a stand-up comedian, Darby made his feature film debut in Yes Man. He then went on to feature as one of the DJs in Richard Curtis’ ffilm The Boat that Rocked. He has since completed two lead roles in romantic comedies, _Coming and Going _opposite Sasha Alexander (NCIS) and Lovebirds opposite Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins.
Rhys has recently starred in a series of Hewlett Packard advertisements opposite luminaries such as Dr Dre and Annie Leibowitz. Darby is never far from his stand-up roots. His stand-up has been described as a sensational blend of sound effects, characterizations and askew observations. His career has taken him from his homeland of New Zealand to the U.K. and beyond. He has performed his unique brand of humor in places as far flung as Iceland to the Falkland Islands, and in festivals from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to Montreal’s Just for Laughs.
The release of his stand-up DVD_ Rhys Darby: Imagine That!,_ filmed live in LA, is one of his proudest achievements. He has toured a new show, It’s Rhys Darby Night to London, Edinburgh, Australia, and NZ. It features brand new stand-up and appearances from his favorite characters, ranger Bill Napier, whale watcher Ron Taylor and UFOlogist Steve Whittle.
After living in the U.K. and the U.S. for seven years, Darby now spends his time off at home in New Zealand with his wife and two young sons.
