Rhys Darby first gained attention in the U.S. 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.
 
A veteran of fifteen years as a standup comedian, Darby made his feature film debut in Yes Man. He went on to feature as one of the DJ's in The Boat that Rocked. He has since completed two lead roles in romantic comedies, Coming and Going and Lovebirds.
 
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.
 
Rhys has two standup DVD’s, Imagine That!, and It’s Rhys Darby Night!. Darby recently released his debut novel This Way to Spaceship, “A loosely autobiographical end of world companion.” It was number 1 in the charts for 7 weeks. He then toured the live show version throughout NZ, the UK and to the Edinburgh Fringe, culminating in filming the DVD at the CBS Arena in Christchurch.

Since then he has written and starred in his own 8 part mockmentary series for TVNZ, Short Poppies, due to air early 2014.
