Flight of the Conchords may rise again
November 15, 2010 - 7:59AM

Cult comedy Flight Of The Conchords could rise again with discussions apparently underway to bring a live version of the TV series to Australia and New Zealand next year.

US comedian Arj Barker, who plays the philosophising stoner Dave in the Grammy-winning hit, has been trying to persuade creators Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement to tour a stage show Down Under.

The duo retired the HBO TV series last year following its second season, with the story's hapless lead characters finally returning home to New Zealand after failing to hit the big time in New York's dizzy music scene.

But the much-loved musical comedy has since been revived for successful stage runs in the UK and the US, and may be about to take off again.

"Brett and Jemaine have talked about touring Australia and New Zealand maybe next year but I don't know, it's a possibility," Barker said.

"I always tell them they should come down here because the live show would go down really well."

Busy work schedules appear to be the biggest stumbling block. Clement is currently filming for his role as the lead villain in Men In Black 3-D while McKenzie is involved in the music for a forthcoming Muppets movie.

Barker is a successful stand-up comedian in his own right and is currently touring Australia, the country he refers to as his "second home", on a 34-date tour.

"I don't know when we'll work together again but I imagine we will in some capacity," he said.

And as for those bumbling characters from Flight Of The Conchords returning to our screens for a third series?

"I wouldn't say it's impossible that they won't do something again, maybe a movie or a one-off or something," Barker said.

"I wouldn't rule it out because the band Flight Of The Conchords has never broken up."

Arj Barker is currently touring Australia while his ARIA-nominated Australian only release DVD, Forever, is out now.
