Flight of the Conchords Announce Premiere Date for HBO Comedy Special in Funny Teaser Video

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.” Back in January it was announced that there would be a new HBO live comedy special featuring the duo. But then in March McKenzie fell down some stairs and broke two bones in his left hand, thus postponing their 2018 tour and the special. But now the special has been filmed and a new premiere date has been announced in a funny teaser video featuring McKenzie and Clement awkwardly announcing it. The special, which was recorded at London’s Eventim Apollo theater will air on HBO on Saturday, October 6 and will feature new material. Watch the teaser below.

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.
