THE FUNNIEST THING I'VE SEEN IN QUITE A WHILE...

OK, how did I miss the fact that the Flight of the Conchords guys are fucking amazing? These Kiwis will fly under my radar no longer...

Feast your ears and eyes upon
"Albi the Racist Dragon," "If You're Into It," "Business Time," and "The Bowie Song."

All of the songs are brilliant, but the dueling Bowie impressions are inspired lunacy of the highest possible caliber. The HBO show is just as good, and the forthcoming album should prove to be even better.

That was fantastic, Jenner.

I missed seeing these guys when they were over here for the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Hope that they come back.

I fake-pray for them to roll through South Carolina (or within a couple of hundred miles) anytime in the near future. I'm hoping the show catches on so maybe they'll start touring everywhere and record beaucoup albums.

HAHAHA! AWESOME Bowie song!

Ive seen their show on HBO a few times, but I havent ever watched it! Shame on me!

The Rev. Jenner J. Hull said...

Yeah, every time I hear, "I bet you do, you freaky old bastard, you!" I almost hyperventilate with laughter. They do some dead-on Bowies. I hope, hope, hope Ziggy Stardust himself has heard the song somehow.

Dikkii,

Cannibal Corpse done "lounge-style?" "Comedy gold" is right, my friend. I currently hunting down some more...

I have been watching them from day one on HBO. I wish I had heard of them before that.

We now call two of my son's hockey teammates 'Hiphopappotomus' and 'Rhymenocerous'.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

The Rev. Jenner J. Hull said...

BGH,

Nothing in the world can ever be as funny as Jemaine and Bret calling themselves the "Hiphopapotamus" and the "Rhymenocerous."

Except for dubbing children as such. I can't wait until they understand the full ramifications of such awesome nicknames.

The only way it could be better is if one child voluntarily called himself "Albi the Racist Dragon."
