About Rhy – courtesy of comedy.co.nz

Rhys is one of New Zealand’s best young professional comedians.  He has spent the last year in the UK polishing his comedy gold at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and on the UK Comedy circuit.  Rhys’ energy and youthful take on complex issues has seen him recognised as a comedic force among his local and international peers.

Rhys was plucked out of obscurity in 2006 as part of the NZ International Comedy Festival’s Class Comedians programme. His talents were recognised by the industry and he soon began gigging professionally, returning to perform ensemble shows at the Festival while at still at school. Then, in 2009, his first solo show “The Best $18 You’ll Ever Spend” won him the Festival’s “Best Newcomer” Award and the critics’ respect; and in 2010 he became the youngest-ever winner of the coveted Billy T Comedy Award.

Rhys’ charm, self-deprecating humour and wonderful story-telling talents combine with his perfectly delivered one-liners and physical presence make him a joy to watch.
