Flight of the Conchords

New Zealand comedy duo Flight of the Conchords haven't been very active since 2009. That's when their HBO series was canceled and their last album, I Told You I Was Freaky, dropped. But through their several hiatuses and Jemaine Clement's bid at a movie career, the musical comedy act have continued to refine their show into a tight, wry riot that mixes Bowie-infused folk with sharp Kiwi wit. The pair of Clement and Bret (pronounced "Brit") McKenzie have a familial intimacy that radiates in the theater setting, making their gig at the Orpheum a rare chance to see the Conchords in an optimal environment. Last year Clement teased that a Flight of the Conchords movie might be in the works.
