2005_04_artsconchords.jpgMaybe you couldn’t swing the cost of the Black Diamond All Access Pass, or perhaps you got blackballed from the St. Regis Hotel for trying to sneak into Larry David’s suite last year. Whatever your reason may be for not attending this year’s US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, you need not worry, a bit of it is coming to New York throughout the week. Flight of the Conchords, named Best Alternative Comedy Act at this year’s festival, will be performing their show at various venues around the city. Self described as “New Zealand’s fourth most popular folk parody duo”, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie perform their own ingenious brand of acoustic musical comedy. The Guardian described them as having “virtuoso musicality and superbly gormless banter”. If you see one gormless show this week, Gothamist thinks this should be it.
