Rhys Darby at the Enmore Theatre

Most will know him (if they know him at all) as Murray Hewitt, the bumbling band manager from Flight of the Conchords, but Rhys Darby has long been a standup comic. I caught him do his new show, “It’s Rhys Darby Night”, at the Enmore Theatre this week. He gets his laugh via a mixture of impressions and surreal physicality (his dinosaurs and malfunctioning Transformers make a couple of appearances). His act now includes the travails of being a simple Kiwi in Hollywood, with gangstas and bank voice systems that don’t understand his accent. Darby’s jokes are almost all very good-natured (even when he’s being foul-mouthed), which means that you don’t feel bad laughing along with him.
