Beloved New Zealand musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords (Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement) have been touring the last couple of years as part of the “Flight of the Conchords sing Flight of the Conchords Tour.” Now they have announced a new comedy special for HBO, to be taped before a live sold out audience at an upcoming performance on their U.K. tour. It’s set to air in May, will be an hour long, and will be directed by Hamish Hamilton.

The duo had an acclaimed TV show (also titled Flight of the Conchords) that ran for two seasons on HBO (starting in 2007), in which they starred as two hapless New Zealand folk singers also named Bret and Jemaine who were trying to make it in New York City. They also released two comedy albums and an EP on Sub Pop, the last one being 2009’s I Told You I Was Freaky. There has been talk over the years of a Flight of the Conchords movie. Meanwhile the duo has kept busy on separate acting and musical pursuits.

Feel free to read our 2008 cover story article on Flight of the Conchords and below is the official video for “Ladies of the World.”
