Flight of the Conchords' career highlights
Initially performing as part of a five-man lineup called So You're a Man, McKenzie and Clement went on to form Flight of the Conchords to showcase their songwriting and comedy skills. Initial TV appearances at home were followed by trips to Europe in 2002 and 2003. A half-hour comedy special was soon offered to the group by HBO in the United States, followed by appearances at a number of festivals in America.
In 2004, the duo made a radio series for the BBC, which featured Rob Brydon as a narrator. Also starring Rhys Darby as their manager, this format became adapted for a US TV series in 2007, also called Flight of the Conchords. Two series of 22 episodes in total were shot. As well as their much-vaunted EP The Distant Future, the pair have released two albums. The first was an eponymous LP of 2008, which was followed by I Told You I Was Freaky in 2009, the latter reaching number 19 in the US Billboard 200 charts.
