Rhys Darby's Saying Funny Things Society.
A new monthly comedy night brought to you by Rhys Darby. Darby will gather his favourite comedy acts from around the globe each month at the Largo in Hollywood.
Expect standup, sketch, improv, variety, music and funniness. Before Rhys Darby was Murray on Flight of the Conchords he did stand-up comedy. He did stand-up comedy with a lot of very funny people who live in far flung places like England, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the moon.
Rhys Darby now lives (near) Hollywood (The Valley). In an effort to get more friends to visit (and bring him pineapple lumps from home) he has started this gig. Once a month Rhys will bring together 3 or 4 of the finest international comedy talkers and practitioners that are currently sleeping on his couch.
Darby started comedy 20 years ago after leaving the NZ Army. After a few years he moved to Britain with his now wife, Rosie. They are now veterans of the Edinburgh Fringe and UK comedy circuit having spent 7 years living there. Rhys hit the road 6 days a week performing in places as humble as country pubs and as glamorous the world renowned Comedy Store. Rosie was a talent booker booking shows for the Jongleurs Comedy Club chain. They know lots of funny people.
