He’s multi-talented: Rhys Darby is an actor, stand-up comedian and amateur cryptozoologist from New Zealand.
You’ve seen him: Best known as Murray from HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, Rhys has gone on to star in a plethora of television shows, including The X Files, Life in Pieces, Modern Family, Comedy’s Wrecked and Netflix’s Voltron. Rhys also wrote and starred in his own 8-part mockumentary comedy series for TVNZ and Netflix, Short Poppies. Rhys made his feature film debut in Yes Man with Jim Carrey and most recently he was seen in the Taika Waititi’s What We Do In The Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Rhys will next be seen in the Jumanji sequel alongside Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
He’s a disciplined stand-up: An ex-soldier in the New Zealand Army and a veteran of twenty years as a stand-up comedian, Rhys 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. 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.
