It’s business time — again. For the first time since their series ended in 2009, musical comedians Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement return to HBO to for an all-new comedy special. The duo will perform classics and new original songs from their “Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords Tour.” The comedy special was filmed in front of a sold-out audience at the Eventim Apollo in London.
New Zealanders McKenzie and Clement debuted on HBO in 2005 in an edition of the comedy series One-Night Stand. They returned to the network in 2007 for the debut season of the series Flight of the Conchords, which followed fictionalized versions of their lives in New York City. The show was praised by critics and beloved by fans. Flight of the Conchords earned 10 Emmy nominations over its two-season run on HBO, while their album “The Distant Future” won Best Comedy Album at the 2008 Grammy Awards.
The executive producers of Flight of the Conchords: Live in London are Jemaine Clement, Bret McKenzie, Simon Pizey, Hamish Hamilton, Mike Martinovich; producer, Jim Parsons; directed by Hamish Hamilton.
