New Zealand comedian Rhys Darby, 38, is taking his latest live show, the award-winning This Way to Spaceship, to Leeds on 14 July as part of his first UK tour. “Only Rhys can figure out how he managed to survive the Armageddon, by looking back at his madcap journey through life,” the Morley Observer & Advertiser describes. “In this brand new show, Darby takes his audience on an autobiographical journey from meek geek to king of cool.” The show won The Fred Award for best show at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival. Darby will also perform at the Edinburgh Festival in August. He can also soon be seen in the new ITV1 show Mad, Mad World.
