Biography

Flight of the Conchords is a New Zealand comedy duo composed of musicians Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. Beginning as a popular New Zealand live comedy act in the early 2000s, the duo’s comedy and music became the basis of the self-titled BBC radio series (2004) and then the HBO American television series (2007-2009).
The duo’s live performances have gained them a worldwide cult following, and they continue to tour periodically. They were named Best Alternative Comedy Act at the 2005 US Comedy Arts Festival and Best Newcomer at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and received a nomination for the Perrier Comedy Award at the 2003 Edinburgh Festival Fringe for their show at Edinburgh venue The Caves. More recently in 2018, they released the live HBO comedy special Live in London. The special was concurrently released by Sub Pop as their fifth album.
They previously referred to themselves as “New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”, but as of 2014 refer to themselves as “the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand”.
