A handy autobiographical end-of-the-world companion...

Posted by Rhys Darby On the 23rd March 2012 Back


Hi everyone,

Well it's 2012 so it's time for me to return. I know it may seem like I never went away, but it's actually been six years since I've done a solo show in the NZ International Comedy Festival!

Recently I wrote my first book 'This Way To Spaceship'. It's a handy autobiographical end-of-the-world companion and it will be launched upon the world on APRIL 12. Once I got to the end of it I realised it made perfect sense to create a live show to go with it. So here it comes...

Without giving too much away, the show itself will be a theatrical stand-up space romp that will combine all the physical silliness that I’m known for plus loads of new askew observational material. I can put my hand on my massive heart and say it’s quite possibly my best stuff yet.

This brand new show will premiere in New Zealand before I take it on my first big UK tour. From there it will venture into the beast that is the Edinburgh Fringe before I finally rest it somewhere safe in a secret location (to film it). So come along for the ride, I’m here to make you laugh, meet you and of course... sign copies of my book!
