Flight of the Conchords fans were abuzz when news broke late last year that the New Zealand-based musical comedy duo, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, would be touring the U.K. and Ireland in 2018.
But wait. What about us folks in North America? Well, the wait won’t be all that long, actually. HBO, the network that aired the musical comedians’ cult TV show a decade ago, has announced plans to broadcast a new TV special. An hour-long taped performance, pulled from their forthcoming U.K. tour, will air this May, reports ComingSoon.net. The guys will be singing classic songs and performing some new original material.
The original TV-run earned 10 Emmy nominations and their album, The Distant Future, won Best Comedy Album at the 2008 Grammy Awards.
