Demetri doesn't really say much on the show, but he is the most wicked keytar player I have ever seen. He just needs to find his own look and stop stealing Bret's, oh and leave Crazy Dogggz so Murray can focus on the Conchords. Demetri is played by real life comedian, and friend of the Conchords Demetri Martin. He is HILARIOUS.

Here is a Demetri moment. I'll also put up a link to some Demetri stand up to give you an idea of who he really is.

*Band meeting with Murray, Bret, Demetri*

Bret- "Two of you? Well thats going backwards. I thought we had a proper three person band, thats what you agreed on"

Bret- "Jemaine and Todd, they fired me, so i started a new band. This is Demetri"

Demetri- "Hey"

Bret- "I met him running"

Murray- "Look, I don't think Jemaine can fire you they need my authorization, don't you?"

Bret- "Its too late"

Murray- "I'm pretty sure you need my authorization for firing and hiring, don't you think? I mean what am I doing? I'll check on that....*writes*. Authorization needed? Bret kicked out. Question mark. Ok so Demetri what exactly is this thing?"

Bret- "Its a guitboard"

Demetri- "No man, its a keytar"

Bret- "keytar...ok its keytar"

Demetri- "You took the wrong half of the words. Its half keyboard and half guitar"

Murray- "So is it a guitar or keyboard?"

Demetri- "Exactly. Its the best of both worlds, so it starts out as a keyboard and ends kind of...guitar"

Murray- "I don't like it. Its weird. Its not the right...right shape."

Bret- "Go ahead, play him something"

Demetri to Murray- "Could you hold that please?"

*Demetri plays Murray some keytar*

Murray- "No, don't like it. Oh, no weird.....oh that bits good."

*Jemaine and Todd walk in*

Jemaine- "Who...Who's this?"

Murray- "Oh here we go, the Fonzies have arrived"

Bret- "This is Demetri, its my new band"

Todd- "Good luck"

Murray- "Oh great, another awkward situation. So whats your band going to be called, Bret?"

Jemaine- "Can't be called Flight of the Conchords, thats our name"

Bret- "Its not, its called The Original Flight of the Conchords"

Todd- "You guys can be Flight of the Condores or whatever, we're going to be the Crazy Dogggz"

Jemaine- "Shut up, Todd"

Todd- "Don't tell me to shut up in front of people"

Jemaine- "Well, don't say what our name's going to be in front of people when we havent discussed it"

Murray- "Ok. Jemaine, Bret, can I have a quiet word"

Bret- "Sure, come on Demetri"

Murray- "No No, private"

*Murray, Bret, and Jemaine leave the room*

Demetri- "I'm just gonna play some more"

Todd- "Stop talking"

Demetri- "What do you play? The leather jacket?"

Todd- "I play the bongos man"

I love the sweater vest joke. All vests protect you from something, sweater vests protect you from pretty girls haha. Also "there is a narrow wind sweeping in" haha

I'm glad to see that there are some Demetri fans here as well. I was actually a Demetri fan long before I knew about Flight of the Conchords. I couldn't be more pleased that these guys are friends. They met a few years ago at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where they were finalists for the Perrier Award. Demetri won that year, only the second American to do so. One of the perks for winning was to have your show turned into a BBC special. So, here's a link to the first part of Demtri's one-man show, If I. It is pretty awesome; it's a bit more serious than one would expect from a comedian, but that's what I like about one-man shows.


(Parts 2-6 are available on YouTube.)
