As if the Gala wasn’t enough comedy for you, everyone’s favourite Kiwi and funny man Rhys Darby will be heading to Sydney for a very special one night stand. Rhys is most widely known as the utterly hopeless but totally endearing manager Murray from Fight of the Conchords and he’s sure to bring that uncanny charm with him tenfold on the night. And yes, you should imagine him saying everything in an accent every bit as thick as Murray’s – he was not hamming that up for the role.
