Flight of the Conchords Work Out Messy Family Drama in New Song 'Father & Son' On 'Colbert': Watch


If you recognize 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 concerning the lengthy break on Monday night time's (Sept. 24) Late Show.

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

After taking place a darkish, bizarre highway 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 trend, what started as a beautiful forwards and backwards 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 dwell collectively/That's why you decide me up on Friday nights," McKenzie sang again. Bottom line: marriage is tough and youngsters are method smarter than you assume.
