Comedy Central Presents ... some familiar TV faces - VIDEO

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 3rd 2009 11:03AM
John Mulaney, form Comedy Central PresentsIf you tune in to the premiere of the new Comedy Central Presents... stand-up shows tonight, you'll see a couple of familiar faces in John Mulaney (11PM) and Kristen Schaal (11:30PM).

Schaal might be the easier face to place - her role as Mel, the lone groupie on Flight of the Conchords expanded this season, to the point where Bret and Jemaine were actually living at her apartment for a while. Mulaney has done more work behinds the scenes writing for Saturday Night Live (he's been on camera once or twice, in the fine tradition of writers like Conan O'Brien). But he's also been on shows like Important Things with Demetri Martin and Best Week Ever.

Both are worth catching for their stand-up acts. Schaal brings some of the quirkiness of her Conchords character, without the creepiness. She's got a great, vivid imagination, which is easy to see in this clip about her dreaming of George Washington.

Jim Gaffigan: The TV Squad interview - VIDEOS

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 27th 2009 2:00PM
Actor and comedian Jim GaffiganActor and comedian Jim Gaffigan has come a long way from driving down the stock price for Hot Pockets.

He landed his own short-lived sitcom on CBS, thanks to David Letterman, called Welcome to New York and a co-starring role on the hit TBS' dramedy My Boys, which returns for a third season on March 31.

He also racked up a long resume of funny and dramatic roles on hit shows like Sex and the City, Flight of the Conchords, and That 70's Show. He is also one of the few actors to score appearances on all of the Law & Order series if you don't count the spinoff that hardcore L&O cultists are forbidden to say out loud.

Bill thinks he's finally found a way, via a legal ally, to rid himself of the whole bunch all at once, though, as always, Roman will be at his wily best when the heat is on.

Meanwhile, as Sarah finally settles on post-high school plans, Nicki has a surprise reunion, Alby struggles to hold on to control of the compound and one character – a major character – becomes the second shocking 'Big Love' death of the season.

Flight of the Conchords: New Cup

flight of the conchords new cup recap review
(S02E02) "We're back at square one ... Typical isn't it? We were at square two, but now we're back." – Murray, after bailing the boys out of jail


For me, the best thing about Flight of the Conchords is the deadpan minimalist humor that stands in sharp contrast to the elaborate song sequences. (It should be noted that my favorite FotC song is "I Like to Rock the Party.") It's the comedy that's barely there that makes this show funny. Murray checking his notes to confirm that Bret should have a guitar. Bret offering nut loaf to potential "Janes." The "dad guitar." That's the good stuff.

New Flight of the Conchords songs to debut on iTunes

by Mike Moody, posted Jan 12th 2009 1:10PM
flight of the conchordsHow hard is it to write a Flight of the Conchords song, really? I wrote one just now:

"Look at you pretty lady
You make me mess like a baby
Your sexiness doesn't even stop
For the crosswalk or for the cops
It runs right over that crime scene
Screwin' with forensic science and makin' me scream
Oh, oh, oh-oh,
You're gonna bulldoze that 60-story office building that survived four earthquakes and some really strong winds
With your super sexy sexiness, lady."

Yeah, I know, it's bad, but it would probably sound funny over some video of Bret and Jemaine making obscene gyrating motions on the streets of New York City. Just picture it.

Flight of the Conchords man up for Time Out

flight of the conchords time out cover

My apologies to Flight of the Conchords. Being a heterosexual dude, I'm not too turned on by the Hasselhoff-eclipsing manliness Bret and Jemaine have apparently been hiding under all that hipster garb. I do applaud the duo for doing this photo shoot, though. They've shattered the idea that all city-dwelling indie dudes have to look like Conor Oberst. Now I can show off my TV on the Radio T-shirt and my awesome biceps with pride.

Yes, these are the actual covers of the latest issue of Time Out New York and not some obsessive fan girl's Photoshop fantasy (unless the Time Out page designer is an obsessive FotC fan girl). I was already excited about the Conchords return to HBO, and now this has me counting the days until their show premieres on January 18. I do have one question, though: Why no topless Murray?

Conchords gets 250,000 viewers online

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 29th 2008 10:01AM
Flight of the ConchordsIt looks like the Flight of the Conchords premiere shown exclusively online at FunnyOrDie.com and HBO.com drew 250,000 views in the first 10 days. The article doesn't say whether or not that represents unique views or the same person viewing it 250,000 times (where was Kristen Schaal during the past 10 days?), but it likely was the former.

It says a lot about the power of online buzz, given that the last season premiere had only 100,000 views (before Flight of the Conchords had mainstream popularity in the States). Fans like me have waited two years for the next season (which, I understand, was held up because the duo was busy writing new songs for the second season), and it was nice to be able to watch the premiere online in advance of its initial television broadcast. Other networks should follow HBO's pattern to generate buzz for their programming.

I received a couple of their albums for the holidays (better late than never). My favorite song of theirs is "Bowie".
