Description

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 fifteen years as a stand-up comedian, Darby made his feature film debut in ‘Yes Man’ with Jim Carrey. He then went on to feature as one of the DJs in Richard Curtis’ film, ‘Pirate Radio’. He has since completed two lead roles in romantic comedies, ‘Coming and Going’ opposite Sasha Alexander (NCIS) and NZ Film ‘Lovebirds’ opposite Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins

Darby is never far from his standup roots. His standup 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 humour 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.
