Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 7 August 2008
Fans of the Boosh will delight at the exploits Flight of the Conchords, the self-styled 4th most famous New Zealand folk-parody duo. This is a comedy show that takes a little from many of the best comedy shows from the past decade and then mixes it all up in a relatively fresh and gloriously quirky way. The deadpan humour of the Office is highly evident as are the flights of comedic whimsy and humourous fantasy one might find in any Boosh show. The offbeat tone will appeal to anyone who loved Napoleon Dynamite and the musical numbers (some of the best musical comedy I've heard in recent years) come across as a mix between Bill Bailey and a less rude Tenacious D (in improvisational tone anyway). Bret and Jemaine play off one another superbly and are ably supported by unsung hero of the series Rhys Darby as their goateed failure of a manager Murray. Kristen Schaal as fanatic sole fan Mel and Arj Barker as the would-be-cool-Brooklyn-boy-but-still-lives-with-parents Dave also provide giggles along the way.

With fewer tendencies to go off on a random tangent than the Mighty Boosh, and the odd whiff of the Pythonesque at times, this might just be the hip new comedy series that everyone both old and young can get into.
