The New Zealand comedic muso duo Flight Of The Conchords ripped laughs from the belly via the brain at their opening Australian concert at the Sydney Opera House last night.

Well warmed by their co-star and almost Aussie resident Arj Barker, an up-for-it audience welcomed Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie like long lost mates who had missed the last two BBQs.

By virtue of their hit TV series, expectations were buoyant.

Much of their material is well known and loved, yet the pair's unique blend of comedy and song hit its mark with a first-time freshness which few seasoned professionals could match in the YouTube era of sound bites and shaky fan videos.

Every element of the show is rigged for laughs, from instructions to Matt their sound guy slash hairstylist to the lighting technician Alex to strike a particular mood from "medieval" to "misery".

Although poor Nigel from the NZSO (the supremely talented representative from their home country's "orchestra") as straight man seemed a tad wasted. In a comedic rather than rock n roll fashion.

Where FOTC truly bedazzle is as musicians, songwriters and singers.

The laughs may be the ultimate pay-off but it's their music which riivals their peers in pop, rock and well, every genre imaginable.

They are that good, whether channelling Bowie, Barry White or Black Eyed Peas.

If you can get your hands on a ticket to see FOTC on their Australian tour - they're pretty hot with a long list of celebs still hanging in hope - grab it. It's one of those nights.

Flight Of The Conchords on song in Sydney

Ross Purdie, NZ Newswire July 6, 2012, 2:35 pm



It must be hard to stay grounded when you're Flight Of The Conchords.

Once self-titled "New Zealand's fourth most-popular folk parody act", Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement have since soared to the heights of international comedy's hippest act.

But when the running joke is that you're two losers from a failed band with only one fan turning up to your gigs, how do you handle hundreds treating you like rock gods at the Sydney Opera House?

Fortunately, the ego has yet to land on the live stage with the comedic duo as self-deprecating as when they burst on to our TV screens five years ago.

Vain attempts are made at pop diva posturing - chastising a sound tech for styling their hair the wrong way ("this is our Sydney Opera House gig, don't try out new things") or meandering into a long anecdote about "crazy times" on tour with muffins.

The Kiwi duo also land a few expected digs on their Australian audience, unveiling new musical instrument the "wozzanator" ("invented by Wozza") and marvelling at their surroundings ("this is probably where they did Crocodile Dundee The Musical").

Otherwise the laughs are firmly on them, a dual tribute to the characters' dim-witted naivety and the actors' near psychic intuition during some glorious ad lib moments.

Of course, the funniest moments throughout the TV series were always the songs, whimsical and quick-witted compositions that parody every musical genre from hip-hop to glam rock.

Hurt Feelings (Tears Of A Rapper) comes to life as a mournful ballad ("I feel like a prized arsehole, no one even mentions my casserole") while Business Time sees Jermaine shine as the sleazy but loveable sex machine.

Other songs, such as the Pet Shop Boys-aping Inner City Pressure, suffer from a lack of graphics to storyboard the narrative, while a couple of newer numbers drift by forgetfully.

But with the audience singing along to every word on favourites like Epileptic Dogs, the hardcore fans well in on the joke, this show is simply a way of reliving laughs with two of the funniest guys on the planet.

Flight Of The Conchords continues at shows around Australia until July 18.
