Live Photos and Review: Flight of The Conchords - Tue 19 Jun, Wellington
Written by Sendaria Johnston and Tim Gruar on Wednesday, 20 June 2012

The weather in the Capital last night was utterly appalling. But inside the Michael Fowler Centre it was heating up in anticipation of the arrival of New Zealand’s arguably best-loved comedy duo.

Once settled in, the show kicked off with a 20-minute set from Arj Barker – or Dave, as you might know him better, from the Flight of the Conchords’ TV show. His set was pretty fluid, but for some reason it never really fired up the winter crowd, whose response was a bit luke-warm. Nonetheless, comments at interval and the crowd around the merch tent signing still indicated a warm appreciation. Wellingtonians are a quiet bunch when it comes to comedy.

After the interval: Business Time. Although that particular number turned out to be absent from the bill – shame that. But from the first moment the lads stepped on stage in silver space tops and dinky cardboard helmets for opener ‘Too Many Dicks’, hometown heroes Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement had the punters licking the salt from their sweaty fingertips.

They mixed back catalogue (‘Hurt Feelings’, ‘The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room’, Ladies’, ‘Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenocerous’ and more) with some fine and well-rehearsed improvisations and intentionally clunky “lulls” (yep, they were actually on the set list). With almost rehearsed-sounding “stuff-ups” no beats are dropped. The Conchords' geeky, nervous, ad-lib banter is the same refreshing, low-key, deadpan humour, delivered in a fashion that only true Kiwis can appreciate

Brett and Jemaine were surrounded by a vast array of electrical toys – synths, guitars, a toy piano, drums – and accompanied halfway through by lone cellist Nigel, introduced as the New Zealand Sympathy Orchestra. Nigel proved himself highly erudite especially during the final number ‘Bowie’s in Space’, when all three stood, whipped off their clothes like male strippers to reveal matching sequinned jumpsuits. They then proceeded to tear up ‘Demon Woman’ in true glam style, with capes held up with wire and a major shred-solo by Brett on a kid-size Flying V guitar.

To add even more fun some new numbers got the test drive, too, including 'Back On The Road', a number that dryly apologised for the poor performance and longed for the next town so they could set up and disappoint all over again. "Um, yeah," Brett explained, "We've gotta get back on the road…gotta get going because were playing here tomorrow night."

Of course, we've all caught the HBO effort, we know about the Muppets, the movies and all that, but nothing really compares to the on-stage experience. The Conchords still rock the party!
