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 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 opposite Sasha Alexander (NCIS) and 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. 
Rhys has two standup DVD’s, Imagine That! Filmed in Los Angeles in 2008, and It’s Rhys 
Darby Night! Filmed in Auckland in 2010. 
Darby released his debut novel This Way to Spaceship, “A loosely autobiographical end of 
world companion” in April. 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. 
Darby is based between Los Angeles and New Zealand with his wife and two young sons.
