Flight of the Conchords


The occasion for me to write about the Flight of the Conchords ("New Zealand's fourth most popular folk-parody duo") is long overdue. I will remedy this henceforth if you'd just give me the chance. Musical comedy is certainly not dead with amazing performers like Zach Galifianakis and Demetri Martin bringing the yukyuks over a tune. If anything, touring small-time comedians with guitars have made it more of a joke in the un-funny, self-parodying way. The Conchords, however, are not entirely unlike a folk-based Tenacious D. Two hilarious minds bouncing ideas back and forth, two guitars playing playfully interwoven parts, two deadpan faces that sell the idea with hilarious results. Just watch a video.
