and Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm loves Flight of the Conchords

Actor Jon Hamm has praised Kiwi comedy musical duo Flight of the Conchords as “virtuoso-level musicians that also just happen to be really, really funny”.

In an interview with The AV Club, who label the Mad Men star most handsome man in the world, the ‘Business Time’ hitmakers were the second artists played when shuffle was hit on his iPod.

“This is a perfect combination [of music and comedy],” says Hamm.

“I actually saw their HBO special before they had a show and made a friend of mine come over and watch it with me. I was like, ‘These guys are super funny’.

“And they reminded me a lot of Tenacious D, in way, because they’re crazy-good musicians. They’re virtuoso-level musicians that also just happen to be really, really funny. So that was a cool discovery.”

The Conchords recently completed a hugely successful tour of New Zealand and are currently performing in Australia.

Other tracks that Hamm’s iPod shuffle played include Jay-Z’s ‘What More Can I Say’, Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Don’t Stop’, Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Troy’, Portishead’s ‘Biscuit’, Iron & Wine’s ‘Woman King’, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ ‘I Put A Spell On You’ and comedy from Patton Oswalt and Jimmy Pardo.

Read what Hamm says about each track at AVClub.com.

Jon Hamm was spotted at one of their concerts, wasn't he?

I swear, the only question I wanted The Hobbit cast to be asked at Comic Con was, "What is your favorite Flight of the Conchords song?". #sadlove#

I actually don't like the idea of Jon Hamm liking Bret and Jemaine...

#rofl# I love they make fun of their names.

Now I'm a little bit afraid about Bret, because I found this picture some time ago and it looked so innocent and #redlove# #loveeyes# #redlove#

Maybe Jon is trying to talk Bret into one of his weird businesses. #nervous#

The look on Jon's face doesn't look any different than ours when we've met the Conchords. #lol#

Jon ---> #loveeyes#
Flighties ---> #loveeyes#

He's probably over at our Mad Men thread, patiently waiting for someone to update it. #lol#

I mean when he's not spending all of his time in the Bret section, obviously.

Hi everyone! I'm new here and don't think this has been posted yet....I'm reading Steve Jobs' biography (absolutely fascinating btw) and lo and behold on page 424, when talking about Steve Jobs and U2:

"When Bono hurt his back in 2010 and had to cancel a tour, Powell (Jobs' wife) sent him a gift basket with a DVD of the comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, the book Mozart's Brain and the Fighter Pilot, honey from her beehives, and pain cream. Jobs wrote a note and attached it to the last item, saying 'Pain Cream - I love this stuff.' "

Several times while reading the book I thought about Bret and Jemaine and how they are similar to Steve Jobs in the sense that they all think (thought) very much outside the box and how their creativity is so infectious, so to actually see FOTC mentioned in the book makes me beyond happy! ;D
