Music fused with comedy = Genius

By chance/random, I stumbled upon the comedic and musical genius of Flight of the Conchords.

Hailing from New Zealand, Flight of the Conchords consists of Bret Mckenzie and Jermaine Clement. The two seldom brandish anything more than 2 folk guitars, but their enthusiastic wit never fails to shine through in their performances.

Music and comedy isn’t exactly a brand new concept. Weird Al has done a great job with it and so has Tenacious D. But Flight of the Conchords really shines at the live performances. I personally love the fact that they can come up with a wide range of styles and songs and they often sing about different things. That’s something that really keeps them interesting.

But enough of what I have to say, check out their vids.


Song: The Humans are Dead (A personal favourite)

Song: The Hiphopopotamus vs the Rhymenoceros (They take on hip hop and its eccentricities)

Song: Beautiful Girl (A love song with some twisted humour)

    i love flight of the conchords too! I got to know them by “Foux du Fafa”, a French-sounding song. Apparently Foux du Fafa means nothing in French hahaha and the whole song is only, at its best, gibberish in so-called French. However I enjoyed it tremendously! As you said, genius!

    I bought their CD! Can’t wait for it to come!
