Every single thing that makes Flight Of The Conchords the best comedy show ever

“Move over refrigerators, here’s what’s cool.”

THERE WERE A couple of exciting announcements made over the last couple of weeks. Notably that.

a) Flight Of The Conchords were touring.


b) On said tour they would be debuting NEW MATERIAL.

If you’re unfamilar with the lads, allow me to catch you up to speed. Flight Of The Conchords is a musical comedy duo made up of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. The pair’s act became the basis of a TV show of the same name on HBO, and it ran for two seasons.

And it was so GOOD.

1. The accents

Let’s face it – Bret and Jermaine could say anything and I’d probably giggle. That New Zealand twang though.

‘What Have You Done To My Hat?’ needs to be commissioned in real life, in my opinion.

4. Bret and Jeramine’s non-existent rivalry

ALWAYS trying to get one up on each other, ALWAYS bringing it back to being besties.

They’d be lost without each other <3

5. Mel

Mel is relatable AND gas – who hasn’t gone to outrageous lengths to meet their idols before?

Fun fact – Kirsten Schaal was hired for the role after the lads saw her stand-up.

From Bowie homages, to robots, the 70s shirts, the pyjamas … I could go on.
