What the Kiwi gossip mags say
By CHRIS SCHULZ - Stuff.co.nz | Tuesday, 17 February 2009

Elsewhere, Rhys Darby - Flight of the Conchords' bumbling, badly-moustached manager - is a self-confessed mummy's boy.

The stand-up comedian tells Woman's Weekly with tears in his eyes that his mum is "my driving force, my friend and my comedy buddy".

"She means everything to me," he says.

Hope your tears didn't mess up the minutes from your latest meeting, Murray.

I posted the above in the "Dear Rhys" thread 'cause I didn't know where else to put it and it really did make me love him even more. [image]

A salute to television's most underrated sitcom performers
PopWire: News, Reviews and Commentary
by Neal Justin

Star Tribune (Minneapolis) (MCT)
16 March 2009

Rhys Darby stars in the HBO series "Flight of the Conchords." (HBO)

Rodney Dangerfield wasn’t the only comic to get no respect. Some of the finest work in sitcoms today is being turned in by people who don’t earn Emmy nominations, don’t grace magazine covers, don’t get multimillion-dollar movie deals - and provide the deepest laughs on the air.

Here are five performers who deserve some extra love. ...

... RHYS DARBY

The role: Murray, the eternally optimistic band manager of “Flight of the Conchords” (10 p.m. Sundays, HBO).

Where you’ve seen him before: “Yes Man” and, if you’re lucky, standup stages across New Zealand and Britain.

Why we love him: He’s a modern-day version of the Partridge Family’s Reuben Kincaid - except with two Dannys on his hands.

In his own words: As he told the Onion, “I thought, ‘People aren’t going to like my character, because he’s so different. If they’re really into these cool-looking idiots, they’re not going to like this other idiot who kind of gets in the way and is always uptight’ ... I guess because it’s the opposite side of the seesaw, it just fits in perfectly.”

Betcha didn’t know: He played Roger Federer’s coach in a Nike commercial. ...

Bingle to present at MTV Awards
11:06 AEST Tue Mar 17 2009

Glamour girl Lara Bingle and Flight Of The Conchords comedian Rhys Darby will add looks and laughs to MTV's annual awards night this month.

Bingle, who rose to fame as the Aussie beach babe in the 2006 Tourism Australia campaign, will present an award at the 2009 MTV Australia Awards on March 27.

Representing New Zealand will be Darby, who plays hapless band manager Murray alongside Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement on the hit TV show Flight Of The Conchords.

Bingle and Darby join a growing list of names at the star-studded event, which includes host Pete Wentz and performers Jessica Mauboy, The Fray, The Killers, Sia and Kings of Leon via satellite.

The Hills star Audrina Patridge will host the arrivals, and UK band Kaiser Chiefs will provide the soundtrack, performing live on the red carpet.

The event will be broadcast on MTV Australia.
