Flight Of The Conchords
New Zealand's self-proclaimed "fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo a cappella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo" got its start in Wellington. Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement started crafting their unique two-man comedy mélange in 2002, while the two of them were living together at college. The duo achieved international fame in 2007 with their popular HBO series, which combined the understated humor of Ricky Gervais' Extras with the musical slapstick of Tenacious D; the program followed the two trying to achieve success as a band in New York City, with silly songs worked into the plot lines. In April of 2008, Sub Pop released a full-length album of songs from the show. ~ J. Scott McClintock
