Grammy award winning New Zealand folk-comedy artists Flight Of The Conchords have a huge following, as their songs (and TV show!) are quite simply, hilariously funny! Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement brand themselves as “formerly New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”!
If you’ve never heard of Flight of The Conchords, and you love comedy and music, you have to check them out!
The FOTC duo rarely play live, and are really in demand by their fans, so it was an ultimate no-brainer when they announced a tour on their official homepage.
As soon as Bret and Jermaine came on, the funnies instantly started, they were dressed as robots and sung ‘Too Many Dicks (On The Dancefloor)’ because it’s a techno song.
From then on, they sat on their stools with their instruments in true FOTC style and just talked a load of nonsense, a lot what I thought they were just making up as they went along talking about non-funny stories, but had the audience in stitches!
The show was extremely strict on people recording the event, as I believe that this is how Bret and Jermaine want their show to be – something intimate and unique at every show!
I can’t stress how much I really enjoyed seeing FOTC live XD <– is what my face looked like for the entire night. I especially liked my favourite song ‘Mutha Ucka’s’ as Bret’s music skills really shined.
They surprised everyone by playing a brand new song that was never heard before from their albums or their comedy series (which is now sadly cancelled from a decision put forward by the duo :() that has become my new favourite as it is extremely clever and caused the audience to almost die laughing.
I won’t post it as it really spoils what Bret and Jermaine would like and it won’t be surprising if you ever get to see them :).
They ended with a huge stage show with props and costumes and came into the seated audience, and sang everyones favourite song ‘Business Time’ ;).
On the rare occasion when Flight Of The Conchords next play live near you, I suggest you don't hesitate to get tickets as they get sold out fast!
