This is an early screen showing for "music comedy phenomenon" Flight of the Conchords. The excerpts from arts show The Living Room follow Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement from Wellington to performances at the 2002 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Dreams of fame come face to face with budget digs, Jonah Lomu and anonymity, which the duo face with their droll resolve. Larry Pritchard (Taika Waititi) takes on the role of manager, pre Rhys Darby. The next year the Conchords were nominated for a Perrier Award, en route to an HBO TV series and cult stardom.
