OK, so I have been rather quiet in my thoughts on all this. I wanted to give you all a chance to read and discuss and have a bit of fun with the replies
I do want to say how much I loved the part of Brian. Rhys did an amazing job with the character and it felt much more 'real' to me than the parts Bret or Jemaine played. Not always, but often. Maybe the fact he spoke more
Anyways, as my Bloke pointed out, we can see from these answers that Brian really was created bt Rhys. His answers to the questions posed was class. I was laughing at
I really enjoyed your character in the BBC2 Radio Show. Are you like Brian Nesbitt at all?
No Amaria, that was a character I was acting.
So although I may look and indeed sound the same as Brian, he definitely doesn't have the same gift for language and thought like what I can. I as a person am very switched on and I always get places unlike Brian who means well but never gets to the point. I guess what I'm trying to say is that whilst Brian rambles on and never really understands things I however keep to the point and manage not to confuse the situation I see myself finding. As the whole show was improvised, everything you heard just came out of what we were thinking at the time. So yes I tend to ramble on...but Brett and Jemaine don't talk much, so I had to or there'd be a lot of dead air. By the way we sometimes did 10 or 12 takes on some of those scenes and there was a hell of a lot of hilarious stuff that didn't make the cut. I reckon we recorded enough dialogue to make another whole 6 episodes.
I also asked as to whether we could release a seperate episode entitled 'Brians Best Bits' which would be a compilation of my funniest lines and moments. Jemaine promised me this would come to fruition but as yet I have not received this 'extra episode'.
I have also hinted at a 'Brian' spin off series...
It was too funny. I could appreciate what he was doing there. And laughed lots at it.
I loved the detail about Chiswich roundabout. I payed homage to the man in my first radio show thread
I can really get into that side of the humour.
Do you still eat pies?
I'm sick to death of pies...and they nearly spelt the end of our band!
I could almost hear Brian saying this. And then the next two
Who won the raffle?
You'll be pleased to know Trevor won the raffle and in doing so won a fair share of his own bull back! It wasn't that he was lucky.
He was the only one who entered the raffle on that particular night. It wasn't a very busy night. (it was my UK slides evening)
Has being the birthplace of the infamous Conchords made the Taranaki Tavern a major New Zealand tourist attraction?
Yes it has!
We are one of the most popular tourist attractions in Taranaki. Fourth only to Mt. Taranaki (Lord of the Rings) Elmwood regional Park (Lord of the Rings)
and Trevor Davies Award winning Bull (now deceased, but was in Lord of the Rings)
As someone who followed the LOTR films I really could chuckle at the second part there. And Trevor winning back his own bull was priceless.
"You've shot it?" for me is still the best line in the whole series. More on that later though
A part yet to be written about here
