NEW ZEALAND FUNNY FOLK LAND AT COMEDY CENTRAL� THE NETWORK TELEVISION PREMIERE OF "FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS" DEBUTS FRIDAY, JUNE 29 AT 11:30 P.M.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NEW YORK, June 25, 2007 -- New Zealand's foremost folk parody duo and stars of the new hit HBO series bring their musical stylings to COMEDY CENTRAL in the half-hour, self-titled Network Television Premiere special, "Flight of the Conchords," debuting Friday, June 29 at 11:30 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.

The Flight of the Conchords duo, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, fuse acoustic guitars and comical banter, stirring up laughs in this all-new comedy special. Get ready for a quirky concert of original songs such as "Jenny," a call-and-response tune about a man and the woman who mistakes him for the caretaker of her children. Other laugh-out-loud ballads include "Albi (The Racist Dragon)," "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros" and "She's so hot, BOOM." Viewers will fall out of their chairs laughing before they can jump to their feet dancing with this all-new half hour of comedy.

Self-proclaimed "New Zealand's 4th most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo," Flight of the Conchords released "Folk the World � Live Album" in 2002. Since then, McKenzie and Clement have faced success in both comedy and music scenes across the globe. They performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for three consecutive years, the South by Southwest Arts Festival in Austin, Texas and the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee. In 2005, BBC-2 broadcasted their largely improvised radio series, "The Flight of the Conchords." Recently their move to New York City has been featured in their own, self-titled HBO series, which premiered in June.
