Trivia

Before Flight of the Conchords was made into a HBO series, it was a mostly improvised radio series on BBC Radio 2 which is similar to the TV series, where Bret and Jemaine were band members who were trying to make it big in London. Rhys Darby (who plays Murray in the TV series) was their manager, and Jimmy Carr played their fan called Kipper. Their radio series was popular, and in 2006 they were awarded the Bronze Sony Radio Academy Award for comedy. See more »

How can you not love this show?
15 August 2007 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

What more can you ask for? It's funny, it's silly, it has characters that you love and musical numbers that really work. The simple storyline of two New Zealand musicians trying to make it in the Big Apple puts to shame other comedies that try so hard whereas Flight of the Conchords just seems so effortless. Murray their manager who is trying to treat the whole "band" experience" as though they were much larger in scope than just the three of them with almost non existent gigs is hilarious. Their one fan, Mel, is a wide-eyed, curly haired, stalker who conveniently runs into the guys everywhere. Never has stalking been this much fun. Not since Da Ali G. show has an HBO comedy been this enjoyable. Long life to the Flight of the Conchords. A hit if I've ever seen one. I LOVE YOU BRET (Brit)!
