Artists of the Month

These guys have put a whole new tone on the world of music, comedy, New Zealanders and the way people enjoy TV series. The Flight of the Conchords have impressed me since hearing about them about 2 years ago. I now dub them the artists of the month.
Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie are "The Flight of the Conchords"

HBO picked up their humor and knew they had what it takes. checkout more clips HERE

The HBO series revolves around the day-to-day lives and loves of two musicians, Jemaine and Bret (Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, playing fictionalised versions of themselves), who have uprooted themselves from their native New Zealand to try to make it big as a novelty folk duo in New York City. The two have frequent appointments with their band manager, Murray (Rhys Darby), a Deputy Cultural Attaché at the New Zealand consulate, who is overly officious and ineffectual. Jemaine and Bret constantly fend off the amorous attentions of Mel (Kristen Schaal), a married woman who is their sole fan and stalker. Their friend Dave (Arj Barker) works at a pawn shop and gives them advice on dealing with American women and culture. Other recurring characters include their landlord, Eugene (played by Eugene Mirman), Bret's short-term girlfriend Coco (Sutton Foster) and Jemaine and Bret's ex-girlfriend Sally (Rachel Blanchard).-wikipedia
