Flight Of The Conchords - Live At Massey Hall

>> Thursday, 23 April 2009



Greetings from glorious Toronto!

Earlier I moseyed on down to Massey Hall to catch New Zealand prodigial comedic sons The Flight of the Conchords' sold out performance.

And if you're a fan of their schtick/show, you would not have been disappointed.

The entire night had an impossibly high laughs-per-minute ratio and my abs actually hurt a little by the end. Eugene Mirman, who has a recurring role as the lads' landlord in the series, kicked off the evening with some surprisingly hilarious, anecdote-driven standup before introducting the stars of the night. Now while Bret and Jemaine leaned heavily on second-season songs, these new tunes sure translated well to a live setting, and I laughed gleefully throughout ('Carol Brown', Too Many Dicks On The Dance Floor', 'Bowie' were highlights). Plus, the scripted (perhaps) banter between the pair, and the imprompu interaction with the crowd was truly gut-spliting.

Oh, and the cellist in the top photo comprises "The whole of the New Zealand symphony orchestra."

Boy did I laugh at that.

This is one of the few shows I actually enjoy watching, and one of the only shows.The subtle humor of this show is just so great. This is one of the best shows I've ever seen and it truly is one of the funniest. I loved the first season of Flight of the conchords. It's a great season.
