Join Kiwi comedy superstar Rhys Darby as he records his fifth comedy special, Mystic Time Bird.
In Mystic Time Bird Rhys turns to the world of ancient mysticism to find answers to the world’s problems. In doing so, he discovers that he was a bird in a past life, and this knowledge takes him on an unexpected path. Darby will address the big questions like “Are we truly free in this day and age or is alien technology guiding us to an even greater cage?” All this, plus weird movement and sound effects. Darby’s shows are always a mix of astute observations and stand-up cocooned in a fantastical story that takes his audience on a journey through the ridiculous to the downright silly. This show is no different.
Darby rose to fame as the inept, but well-meaning band manager in Flight of the Conchords. He has gone on to star in films like Yes Man, Jumanji, The Boat that Rocked and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. You can also catch him
as Coran on Netflix’s Voltron or in the new TMNT reboot.
