New Zealanders McKenzie and Clement debuted on HBO in 2005 in an edition of the comedy series “One-Night Stand,” returning to the network in 2007 for the debut season of the series “Flight of the Conchords,” which followed fictionalized versions of their lives in New York City. The show was praised by critics and beloved by fans, turning the cult favorites into an international sensation. “Flight of the Conchords” earned ten Emmy® nominations over its two-season run on HBO, while their album “The Distant Future” won Best Comedy Album at the 2008 Grammy Awards.
Flight of the Conchords; Live in London is directed by Hamish Hamilton, an Emmy®-nominated and BAFTA-winning director of numerous televised concerts and special events including the Super Bowl Halftime Show, The Oscars®, the MTV Video Music Awards and the MTV Movie Awards.
