He's about 5'11" or 6 feet. Which to a six foot oner like me is considered very short.

Hey rob will you add Rhys Darby ?
Maybe, I'm sure he had 5ft 11 on his resume, though can look shorter at times.

One more thing...a request, Rob. :) Could you please add that Bret is a Grammy award winning musician for Flight of the Conchords, as well as an Oscar-winning songwriter, for his work on The Muppets (2011)? His work on the new Muppets film is really brilliant.

Wanted to come back to say that I saw these fellas live a few days ago - amazing live show - best concert I've been to, which is saying a lot, as I've seen many rock shows over the years. So much talent and so funny. Really brilliant. I digress....I was but a few feet from the stage and they are both tall guys. Well, compared to me anyway (5'5.25"). I'm not good at guessing height once a person hits 6' though, as I always guess over. But I'd say they are both about 6'1"ish...they don't look much different at all compared to one another. Bret has worse posture and is thinner with has a lighter frame than Jemaine, obviously, which I think gives the impression of him being "small." Lol he isn't small. I love that episode, though. >_< Bret wore sandals, and often wears Converse/Chuck Taylor's which are about as low as you can get, short of going barefoot. I also watched a "making of" documentary about LOTR, in which Bret had a small role as an elf, and the casting director said for all of the elves, they specifically looked for actors who were 6 feet tall and up. So there's no arguing that he's at least 6' tall.

YAY! He's my favorite human being. If I were to design the perfect man, he would come out looking and sounding exactly like Bret McKenzie. <3

You should check out Flight of the Conchords, really good musical comedy show. The two guys are really talented and Kristen Schaal & especially Darby are hilarious as well. Short Poppies, written by and starring Darby in multiple roles and directed largely by Jemaine, also is pretty good.

I hate distracting from the subject of the page, but can I just say I find Darby funny as hell? I've literally never seen him in anything other than the Comedy Central gameshow @Midnight, and he is just the funniest thing I've ever seen. lol

I doubt 5'11" for Darby, he pretty consistently looks about 2 inches shorter than Bret, as well as the similarly-heighted David Duchovny, and 3 inches under Jemaine, as well as with the similarly-heighted Jim Carrey, which puts him around 5'10".
Rhys could be a fraction over 5'10" here with Duchovny but 5'11" is definitely rounded up I'd say.

I have met Rhys Darby a few times and he's a solid 5'10" minimum and thinner than he looks on TV. Maybe because he is small compared to Jemaine and short and stout compared to Brett he gives an illusion of being shorter than he is. It's funny how a recurring joke on the show is that Brett is 'small' or petite at a strapping 6 foot tall!

Thanks for adding, as said before he can look only a smidge shorter than Jemaine and not look much different height in a premiere photo than Ty Burrell. Not really looking anything over six foot though if you compare him to Will Ferrell or Jason Segel.

Sounds about right. How tall could Rhys Darby be? (Murray from Flight Of The Conchords) 5' 10" ?
Editor Rob: not looked much at him, but his agency put him at 182/5ft 11!
