Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, aka the folk-parody band Flight of the Conchords, hail from New Zealand. They were named best alternative-comedy act at the 2005 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.

They starred in an acclaimed HBO series called Flight of the Conchords — which was about two transplanted New Zealanders living in New York City's Lower East Side.

Clement and McKenzie join Fresh Air for a conversation and a few songs.
