Pass a tissue, I'm crying over here

OMG, these guys are too hilarious to NOT be more famous! I'm a fan of some mockumentaries, and "What We Do in the Shadows" is an absolute gem from Jemaine Clement. That led me to this comedy special, then the series "Flight of the Concords". I'm not partial at all to sitcoms with laugh tracks. Another reason I love it. The characters are absolutely, irresistibly...well, irresistible. Every character. I literally watched every episode, both seasons in two evenings. I never do that. How I wasn't aware of the show before, I just don't know. To appreciate the series, this special is a must see first. I laughed til I cried

Partial to Stand-up, but this was very Special

I fell in love with Flight of the Concords when it first appeared on HBO. I just recently re-re-re-watched the entire series over again and happened to find this little gem. I was skeptical about it at first but I watched it and laughed my ass off. It consists of many different songs with some "stand-up" comedy, very similar to the show with a few recognizable notes. I very much enjoyed and would watch it again.

Enjoyed It!

I have never seen them before--so I thought they were pretty funny with their way-out-there kind of humor. I notice someone who gave them one star said they were disappointed since they'd seen material by these two before and thought this would be better than it was, to them. Well, as stated, I had never seen them before--and this was fairly funny, to me.

idiotic and childish but unique and irresistible

The two performers are appealing, gentle, self-deprecating, extremely musical, and absolutely a giggle. I wish there were more 'acts' like this...

Great show. I saw this for the first time before their HBO series and loved it then. This is a great show and you can see where many of their show ideas germinated. Love these guys.

I just love this quirky duo. I saw their TV series and wish there was more. Totally daft deadpan humor.

Cleaver and "different" humor. Very enjoyable and engaging. I laughed out loud---rare for me when watching videos.
