Flight of the Conchords is a folk, pop, and comedy duo composed of Bret McKenzie, of The Video Kid fame, and Jemaine Clement, of The Humourbeasts.
Billing themselves as “Formerly New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”, (having been bumped by a tribute band of themselves, Like of the Conchords) the group uses a combination of witty banter, characterisation and acoustic guitars to work the audience.
The duo’s comedy and music became first the basis of a BBC radio series and then an American television series, which premiered in 2007, also called Flight of the Conchords.
Named Best Alternative Comedy Act at the 2005 US Comedy Arts Festival, Best Newcomer at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and receiving a nomination for the Perrier Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2003, the duo’s live performances have gained them a worldwide cult following.
Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement have performed at venues all over the UK and worldwide, receiving immense critical acclaim. They have a wealth of experience performing live sets, TV and corporate shows, and as such are in high demand in all fields. They have performed at numerous corporate events for clients such as: Sky, Tate & Lyle and Xstrata.
