  1. Join Flight of the Conchords before they leave Wellington for Edinburgh.

  2. Flight of the Conchords at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2002.

Synopsis

This is an early screen showing of "the music comedy phenomenon" aka Flight of the Conchords. The excerpts from The Living Room, follow Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement from Wellington to perform at the 2002 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Dreams of fame confront Jonah Lomu (!), budget digs and anonymity, which the duo faces with the droll resolve they'd make their trademark. Larry Pritchard (Taika Waititi) takes on the pre-Murray manager role. The next year the duo were nominated for a Perrier Award, en route to an HBO TV series, cult stardom, Grammy and Oscar wins.
