Funny, Not Fuzzy, Kiwis

Flight of the Conchords might have concluded its second season on HBO (and, if rumors are true, the show might be gone for good), but that doesn’t mean you’ve gotta give up on "New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo a-cappella/rap/funk/comedy folk duo." Why? Well, for the next two months, those comic Kiwis will be hitting the American road, that’s why. And one of those roads leads right to the BankUnited Center.

Yes, folks, the Conchords' Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement are coming to town and bringing with them their objectifying white-boy hybrid of hip-hop and freak-folk funniness. If you haven’t yet planned on hitting the show, you better do so quickly, ’cause these Kiwis sell out faster than even their fresh fruit counterpart. Better still, they sell out to women, for whom Bret and Jemaine have inexplicably become sex symbols. It seems the Conchords' flighty way of switching the pitch of desire has left the fairer sex fawning, leading Salon, the arbiter of sexy, to name them two of the “Sexiest Living Men” and the Huffington Post to run an entire essay claiming Bret and Jemaine are just about the cutest things going. And if laughing your ass off in an arena full of turned-on females doesn’t sound like your idea of a good time, well, perhaps you’re just not into it.
