That was funny, I can't take them seriously in those wigs :roll2:
I've gotta say that Taika stole the show in that bit for me...his "doggy actions" had me dying :lol:

You would think they would know how to spell his name in NZ of all places.


This is too entirely true, Faith. While in an oddly bit of an overly defensive, weirdly sad/mad albeit brief funk after the no third season announcement (odd because their decision is truly, very ok with me), I emailed the NZ Herald because they misspelled his name twice in the announcement article -- even though the press release with it spelled correctly was was included...! :roll: So I said basically what you said, he's your countryman and all, also including that spelling someone's name right indicates a degree of respect. They changed it but surely they received other emails. Oh well, just being a bit of a defensive superfan. Also, people misspell my name all the time (i.e. Hawt Jamb; Hat Jizzle) and I'm a bit sensitive to it...

More importantly, back to Humorbeasts: they made me laugh. :lol: They were much better than I thought they would be. They sell it because they don't break and are committed 110%. Taika's wig was better and his dancing was noteworthy but Jemaine's Jemaine-ness was tops (I'm biased).

Seen much worse and much, much less funny attempts by supposed "mainstream" comics. I'm really not a fan of standup at. all. (Once went to a show in Vegas where I laughed only when they mentioned that that particular show had been running for forty years. Forty years! :shock: It was such a helpless feeling; it just welled up from the depths. It was an ongoing, silent laugh that included tears, me hiding my face and my friends laughing too, just because. People stared; it was slightly embarrassing. I meant no disrespect but didn't earn any either...).

Anyway, Jemaine and Taika have a different chemistry/vibe than Jemaine and Bret, so that's always interesting to get to see. J & T kind of bounce off of each other, with a healthy dose of more obvious competition (noticed this before with them). J & B do this as well but they seem to absorb each other too and have heightened senses of awareness of each other, if that makes sense. But, really, even when the comedy's redundant or a bit juvenile, they're (all three) such funny, creative, appealing guys that people find it hard not to become engaged.

Not to sound ungrateful about what we have here, after not knowing or seeing anything about Humorbeasts for so long this is wonderful, but I think it would be nice to be able to see more... :D

Couldn't have said it better myself! That's pretty much exactly how I feel. That's why I'm so excited to see the guys to separate projects from the Conchords, because it'll give us a chance to see them do super different stuff like this :D
