(2007–2009)

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.
In episode 2.1, Murray says the Grammys the guys won were fake, but in real life, the band won a Grammy for Best Comedy Album.
At a photo-shoot, Murray says Bret looks so small next to Jemaine that he looks like he could be in Lord of the Rings. Bret McKenzie actually appeared in minor roles in both The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003).
Bret almost always wears a shirt with some sort of animal on it.
Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie met whilst attending Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.
During shooting of the first season, Jemaine Clement was suffering from pneumonia. Because of their very tight schedule, Clement had to continue writing and recording songs despite this.
The Flight of the Conchords won a Grammy in 2008 for the Best Comedy Album for Distant Future.
Jemaine Clement (Jemaine), Bret McKenzie (Bret) and Rhys Darby (Murray Hewitt) are the only actors to appear in all 22 episodes of the series. In second place is Kristen Schaal (Mel), who appears in a total of 21 episodes.
