Earlier in the year, we reported that comedic musical duo, Flight of the Conchords, would be shooting an hour-long comedy special, but few details were revealed in January during the initial reports. Earlier this week, New Zealand natives Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement—better known as Flight of the Conchords—revealed that they’ll be releasing an hour-long special featuring both old and new material on October 6th at 10 p.m. (ET), which will air on HBO.
Flight of the Conchords developed a worldwide cult following after their BBC radio series was turned into a TV show on HBO in 2007, showcasing their unassuming yet hilarious blend of music and comedy. The series (also called Flight of the Conchords) ran for two seasons and was nominated for several Emmys in both songwriting and overall comedic categories. After a relatively quiet few years, the group returned in 2016, announcing an extensive summer tour that marked their first U.S. shows since 2013.
In March, Flight of the Conchords embarked on their first U.K. tour in seven years, with stops in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Dublin, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool and more, which was kicked off with two nights at London’s Eventim Apollo. The new special, Flight of the Conchords: Live at the London Apollo, is compiled material from the opening-run of their most recent tour.
