The complete BBC Radio 2 series from Perrier Award nominated duo Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement.
Flight of the Conchords are Bret McKenzie (guitar and vocals) and Jemaine Clement (vocals and guitar) and they are New Zealand's fourth best folk guitar-based jazz, techno, hip-hop duo.
Over six episodes we follow their attempts to crack the UK's novelty music scene with songs such as Frodo, Don't Wear The Ring (Magical Bling Bling), Fudafafa, Hiphopapotamus and Think About It (Think, Think About It).
The Conchords have travelled the world and become one of the best-loved double acts on the circuit.

"The Conchords do provide some lovely in-flight entertainment." (The Independent)
If you've not seen the HBO TV series let this be an introduction to the offbeat world of 'New Zealand's best comedy folk duo'. Don't worry, if that doesn't sound appealing, the combination of genuinely funny parody songs and the brilliantly awkward world of Brett and Jermaine is laugh out loud funny. If you like the boosh, partridge, the office, curb your enthusiasm etc this should appeal.
Just as funny as the tv series, love the rob brydon voiceover!
Laugh out loud comdedy very glad I downloaded it!!
As avid fan of the Conchords after living in New Zealand for a while I had seen Series 1 on tv, but had never heard their Radio Material. It is magical, funny and wonderful for a road trip or to brighten up the daily commute. I cannot recommend this enough, especially to fans of the tv show who will recognise the songs and characters. Although Ryhys Darby's character Murray has a different name which takes a little getting used to.
This has to be the most funny and original comedy series ever! Although just going to a second series on HBO, the radio show that started it all is by far the best thing that they have ever done.
Never again will I purchase a novelty bow and arrow set from the tower of London in case I too am taken on a magical tour of the London Underground!
"Where's the Panda?"
Huge fan of FOTC. Definitely recommend all to watch the TV show for all the new songs and the imaginative ways the songs are brought to life
Didn't know how this would work on audio book after watching the TV show but it was really funny. Well worth downloading and a listen!
This is simply a joy for fans of musical comedy everywhere. Wonderful songs with brilliant lyrics, perfectly performed.
The "aromarherapie" should totally be a thing...
A must-have if you're a fan of the Conchords. For that matter if you're a fan of comedy or music or the spoken word. Tremendously entertaining.
