Flight of the Conchords

Posted by Dirk under: music; television .

Flight of the Conchords is a new comedy on H.B.O.

The show is about a 2 person band from New Zealand called Flight of the Conchords that have moved to New York to try to make it big. Brett and Jemaine are the band. Other regulars are their manager, Murray, their New York buddy Dave and their fan club/stalker, Mel.

Each episode is a half hour long and usually includes two musical interludes. The songs cover many different styles but they are all pretty catchy and funny.

In this clip, Jemaine sees a good looking girl at a party and breaks into song.

A couple more clips: Brett writes a song for his girlfriend; the guys break into a gangsta rap when confronted by two muggers

All in all, it’s a very quirky and fun show. If you get the chance, check it out. Or go to youtube and search for “flight of the conchords”. You’ll get a ton of results
