There seems to be an abundance of comedy bands coming out recently (especially from Australia and New Zealand, oddly) and the first that my sister introduced me to were Flight of The Conchords.
The band is made up of New Zealand based comedy folk duo Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement.
Bret Mckenzie has had uncredited appearances in The Lord of The Rings: Fellowship and Return of The King; credits in The Hobbit; music supervisor on The Muppets for ‘Man or Muppet’, which he won the 2012 Acadamy award for Best Original Song.
Jemaine Clement has had credits in Napoleon Dynamite, The Series; Men In Black 3; The Simpsons; Dinner for Schumcks; and Despicable Me.
The two have appeared in an HBO series, Flight of the Conchords. The show follows the lives of Bret and Jemaine (with the two playing fictionalised versions of themselves). The show also features Kristen Schaal as the lone, obsessed fan of the duo, and appearances by Kristen Wiig and Patton Oswald.
