Quotes by Rhys Darby
I’ve never thought of myself as a writer. I still don’t, despite all the writing I’ve done.— Rhys Darby
In the ’80s, when I was watching Bond films in the cinemas, Roger Moore was the man. I’ll always have a soft spot for him. His Bond films were light-hearted and silly as well as action-packed. For me, this spoke volumes. It meant that, someday, maybe someone like me with a whacky sense of humour could be James Bond.— Rhys Darby
As a man, you think, ‘Hey, man, I want to be like Bond or Tintin.’— Rhys Darby
Here’s my take on Andy Kaufman… For Kaufman, comedy was a skill that was open for examination. He didn’t just do comedy, he deconstructed it like it was a transistor set. He pulled out all the wires and switched them around, often in front of our very eyes.— Rhys Darby
There comes a time in every man’s life when he realises he will never be James Bond.— Rhys Darby
