FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS: Tonight: Exclusive New Zealand television interview with Mark Sainsbury with a very special announcement.

This might be about the Comic Relief project since an article said an announcement is due this week but I guess we'll wait and see! Hope at least one WTFer will be able to tune in and fill us in with all the details. :)

Thanks to Tracey who posted on our Facebook Page about the interview with aired on TV One:
Quote:
It has just aired - it was an interview with Mark Sainsbury and he basically went over their history, did they hold grudges against those that turned them down in the begining, how did they feel about each others sucesses etc. It was all interlaced with older footage. Was about 7 mins long.
oh an yes the extra show was the announcement.............

Click here to watch the video of Bret and Jemaine's interview on Close Up :D

An article about it:

Quote:
Flight of the Conchords bow to pressure with extra show
Published: 8:42PM Wednesday June 20, 2012 Source: ONE News

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie on Close Up. - Source: Close Up

Flight of the Conchords have added a third Auckland show to their sold-out New Zealand tour because of nationwide demand.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow for the comic singing duo's extra show at Vector Arena on Saturday June 30.

The Conchords' other 14 shows around the country are sold out.

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie started their New Zealand tour at Hawke's Bay Opera House last week.

A show was added at Wellington's TSB Bank Arena to ease pressure after three performances at the Michael Fowler Centre sold out in a week.

The promoters say the duo are being stopped in the street everywhere they go and asked to add more dates, so they have bowed to pressure and added the third show at Vector Arena.

Clement and McKenzie's careers took off with Flight of the Conchords and they haven't come down since.

Their awkward brand of Kiwi comedy made them cult hits in the United States and they have now graduated to the big screen.

McKenzie has an Oscar for the Muppet movie song and Clement plays the baddie role in Men in Black 3.

The Conchords showed their talent for quick-fire banter on TV ONE's Close Up when asked if they get on with each other.

"Not really, not really, nah," said McKenzie.

Clement said: "Oh I was gonna say yes."

"Oh yes we do," McKenzie then agreed.

Clement explained: "One of us likes the other one, and the other one is not decided."

They got a bit serious when Close Up host Mark Sainsbury said funding body New Zealand on Air didn't seem to "get" them and didn't think they were creative or good enough.

"You don't get very much feedback from them which I think would be some way that they could improve relations with writers and people like that," Clement said.

"You really don't hear anything, and it's very strange. All you hear back is 'no' and that's all the feedback you get. It's a real mystery."

McKenzie said that was a long time ago and he has no idea what's going on now with NZ on Air.

"Yeah it may have changed," Clement said.

McKenzie said it was probably a blessing in disguise that New Zealand producers, including TVNZ, didn't pick the Flight of the Conchords early on.

"If we'd made a show in New Zealand we might not have made a show in America," he said.

Clement said looking back, the Conchords were going out to do "the opposite" of what TVNZ was doing with comedy, so it was not really a surprise that the company didn't pick them for a show.

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie

Flight of the Conchords spoke to Laura Frykberg about what it’s like to have sold out concerts in their home country.
Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie are currently touring New Zealand, having already performed in Hastings, Hamilton, Auckland, Wellington and New Plymouth.

Next they are heading south and will then be circling back up to Auckland for two more concerts on June 29 and another recently announced one on June 30.

It is the first time they have toured New Zealand since 2002, doing only one concert in between in Clement’s home town of Masterton in 2009.

Watch the full interview

ETA: There's also this video about their third show at the Vector Arena which contains some new extra footage. :)

Love seeing them together again. :heart:

Oh Venus what would we all do without you! :thanks: :hug:
Are those sites not geo-blocked for people outside NZ? (I really hope not - since I've been so slack in my NZ TV programme recording duties). I laughed my arse off at both of those interviews! Great great stuff!
:biggrin:

No problem, everyone. Yep, the videos seem to be working fine outside of NZ. I was giggling throughout watching the videos too!

LOL, really enjoyed that moment you screencapped, SW. Gotta love Jemaine's goofiness in these interviews like when he was demonstrating how people dance and laugh at the same time. :lol:

So who's going to own up to sending Bret and Jemaine weird requests about nude wrestling for their film project? :tsk: :P

There's also this video about their third show at the Vector Arena which contains some extra footage.

"Do you want any input from fans maybe?"

"No, not those guys. They'd all be- 'Ohhh, you guys are nude...and you're wrestlers...' :rolls:

it wasn't me, i swear!
