Flight of the Conchords: Think about It

It’s Flight of the Conchords Wednesday!

Here’s one for ratpony. Think about it. Think, think about it…

Flight of the Conchords: Business Time

Wellington’s fourth most popular digi-folk paradists are currently shooting their 12-part HBO comedy series in New York, with fellow Wellingtonians Taika Waititi directing a couple of shows, and Duncan Sarkies providing the script for one of the episodes.

All this, of course, is just an excuse to post some classic Flight of the Conchords for your listening enjoyment. Oooohhh yeahhhh, it’s business time…

How am I funny?

I'm here to fucking amuse you?

What do ya mean, funny? Let me understand this cause, I don’t know maybe it’s me, I’m a little fucked up maybe, but I’m funny how? I mean, funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh… I’m here to fuckin’ amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?

Errr, that’s not really relevant, but it is a good scene.

Anyway, if you think you are funny, register yourself for the Wellington Comedy Club’s Rookie competition, taking place at the San Francisco Bathhouse on October 21st (as per the Comedy Club’s website), or maybe the the 19th of October (as per Newtown Ghetto Anger’s website). Head over to the Wellington Comedy Club website for more details.

There’s also a related workshop for budding comedians to hone their skills – a one hour session with some local pros on the 12th of October, again at the SF Bathhouse. More details on that at Newtown Ghetto Anger.

The reviewers say:

“Hugely entertaining and quirkily Kiwi …two brilliantly talented comic actors create not only an entire community with over 400 locals, but also a dance routine, pub brawl, shipwreck and, dizzyingly, a bareback horse race… Energising, hilarious and perceptive, this beautifully honed show is pure theatrical magic” New Zealand Listener, 2006

“The whole story is told in 80 extraordinary minutes through 55 characters and a pet rock, all created with minimalist wit, great ingenuity and monumental talent by Toby Leach and Nigel Collins…. there is no one you don’t know, or know of, in this community.” National Business Review, 2005

“…gloriously performed …rivalling Ben Hur for excitement but much funnier …a sure fire hit.” Dominion Post, 2005

Flight of the Conchords

Wellington folk-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords now have their own website up and running, with what promises to be a running diary of their exploits in the UK, as they, in Bret’s words: “…attempt to make it in the cut-throat novelty music scene in England even though we probably won’t, it’s just too cut-throat.” […]

Al “Pub Landlord” Murray

Buy, beg or steal a ticket as we have it on excellent notice that this guy (Al Murray) is the best comedian seen in many a year. A few of the Wellingtonistas are going … you should too. The Opera House: Thursday 30th June & Friday 1st July The low-down from the Ticketek site: All […]
