91

If something about New Zealand comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, it's that their wit is drier than the Sahara Desert within the summertime.

This may clarify why Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement didn't actually have a "humorous" reply for the place they've been since occurring hiatus in 2009 when superfan Stephen Colbert requested them in regards to the lengthy break on Monday night time's (Sept. 24) Late Show.

"We've simply been preparing for tonight," McKenzie stated about what the duo have been as much as all these years. Truth be informed, they've had some youngsters (not collectively, thoughts you, however individually), plus they've made some films and did a little bit of touring just lately that may debut on HBO as Flight of the Conchords: Live on the London Apollo on Oct. 6. When Colbert advised their viewers had aged together with them, Clement argued, "It looks like we've gotten extra older to me." 

After happening a darkish, bizarre street with an prolonged metaphor about fame as a horse, the duo took to the stage to debut a model new acoustic ballad "Father & Son." And, in typical FOTC style, what started as a stunning backwards and forwards Cat Stevens-esque dialogue between a loving "man and his little man" turned tremendous bizarre when Clement tried to calm McKenzie's fears within the wake of mother's dying.

"You know very effectively dad momma didn't die/She simply connected with one other man/His title's Trevor and now they reside collectively/That's why you choose me up on Friday nights," McKenzie sang again. Bottom line: marriage is difficult and youngsters are approach smarter than you suppose.
