Audiences in several different countries have taken note of Rhys Darby's comedic talents in several different mediums.
An ex-soldier in his native New Zealand's army and a veteran of 10 years as a stand-up comedian, Darby's act finds him mixing and matching sound effects, characterizations and askew observations. He has practiced his unique brand of humor in places as far-flung as Iceland and the Falkland Islands, and in showcases ranging from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival. The release of his stand-up concert DVD, "Rhys Darby Live: Imagine That!," which was filmed live in Los Angeles in 2008, is one of his proudest achievements.
Darby made a memorable film debut opposite Jim Carrey in Peyton Reed's hit comedy, "Yes Man."
