Bio

Rhys Darby is a New Zealand actor and comedian known for his energetic physical comedy routines, telling stories accompanied with mime and sound effects of things such as machinery and animals.

Darby is best known for his role as Murray Hewitt, the band manager of Flight of the Conchords in the HBO television series, a role he originally played in the BBC radio series under the name Brian Nesbit.

He also starred as Mike in the short-lived sitcom How to Be a Gentleman, from 2011-2012.

A former soldier in the New Zealand Army and a veteran of standup comedy, Darby made his feature film debut in Yes Man, and later starred in Lovebirds and as one of the DJ's in Pirate Radio. He can also be seen in the romantic comedy, Coming and Going.

Darby is never far from his standup roots. His comedy has been described as a sensational blend of sound effects, characterizations and askew observations. He has appeared in both the Edinburgh Fringe and the Montreal Just for Laughs festivals.

Darby notes that the release of his standup DVD, Rhys Darby: Imagine That! is one of his proudest achievements. He also had a starring role in the short-lived sitcom How to be a Gentleman, from 2011-2012.

Darby spends his time off at home in New Zealand with his wife and two young sons.
