Part of the New York Comedy Festival. 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 stand-up comedian, Darby made his feature film debut in 'Yes Man' with Jim Carrey. He then went on to feature as one of the DJ's in Richard Curtis' forthcoming film, 'Pirate Radio'. He has since completed two lead roles in romantic comedies, 'Coming and Going' opposite Sasha Alexander (NCIS) and NZ Film 'Lovebirds' opposite Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins. Darby recently appeared on the CBS television show 'How To Be A Gentleman' with Kevin Dillon, Dave Foley, David Hornsby, and Mary Lynn Rajskub. Darby has appeared in several comedic ad campaigns for Nike, Hewlett Packard and 2 Degrees Mobile. 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. His first standup DVD, Rhys Darby: Imagine that! Was shot in Los Angeles in 2008. His second DVD, It's Rhys Darby Night! Recorded in his home town of Auckland, New Zealand is due for release this Christmas.

Venue Description: Voted top-rated comedy club by the Daily News and best comedy club in NYC by NY Press. Emerged as NY's premier comedy venue. Legends like Jerry Seinfeld are known to drop in on this upscale yet intimate setting.
