Flight of the Conchords: Lonely Knights - One4Review
Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, both from New Zealand, are together known as ‘Flight of the Conchords’. I first heard of them in 2003 when they were selling out the Gilded Balloon Caves and were Perrier Award Nominees.
The praise for this musical comedy duo came from punters, performers, publicity people and the press. They were labeled the comedians comedians and have a large cult following, many people going to the show over and over during a run.
I decided to try and see what the hype was all about.
This year’s show entitled ‘Lonely Knights’ is proving to be as popular as ever. Despite queuing in the damp for twenty five minutes, I can say the show was well worth it, but I feel I didn’t quite get the full impact of last years more intimate venue. The writing genius of the duo is obvious, the sound extremely pleasant, the looks strange but appealing and I look forward to listening in more details to the CD available.
I may be following the flock, sheepishly being fleeced for the cost of the ticket and CD. Yet I wouldn’t send either of these two away should they arrive in a suit of armour on a white charger.
