is a comedian and actor from New Zealand. He has been living in London for the past four years and traveling all over the United Kingdom and beyond performing in comedy clubs and in festivals.
Rhys' stand-up act is quite unique. He combines story telling with physical theatre as he morphs in and out to create not only characters but objects, whilst all the while providing the sound effects to go with it. It is of some note that before entering the arts Rhys was a soldier in the New Zealand army (yes, they have an army) and Rhys is also a keen dancer. He once performed in his sister's dance troupe which toured schools of Australia with the dance version of Lord of the Rings. In his spare time, Rhys can be found at a park, enjoying nature with his wife, Rosie, and his one year old son, Finn. (Who also is a keen dancer.)
