Rhys Darby Unplugged Interview (Video)

Rhys Darby Unplugged Interview (Video)

Murray Hewitt AKA Rhys Darby is interviewed for the “Shit people want to hear”. Rhys talks about comedy, colour, whales and changing your name among many other things.

Rhys is one of New Zealand’s most successful comic actor with roles opposite Phillip Seymore Hoffman, Jim Carey and Dave Foley to name a few. His particular style is perhaps personified as an ultimate kiwi bloke, the blokes bloke. For example, his particular brand of humor involves a complete misunderstanding of human nature which of course doesn’t stop him from offering his version of the world.

Perhaps Rhys is an anti Jerry Seinfeld. Whereas Jerry makes observations based elements of truth (such as Rental Car Reservations), Murray makes observations based on pure falsehoods (such as Murray Band Manager).

Nonetheless the comic stylings of Rhys Darby makes him an original. Of course that is what we look for in great humor.
