The Flight of the Conchords
2004 radio series
In 2004, the band The Flight Of The Conchords created a radio series for BBC Radio 2. Largely improvised, the series was based on the band's search for commercial success in London. It featured Rob Brydon as their narrator, Rhys Darby as their manager and Jimmy Carr as a devoted fan called Kipper. The radio series was a progenitor of the 2007 television series: the plot is similar - the band arriving in a foreign country to make their fortune, Rhys Darby playing their manager and calling band meetings - and many of the songs were later used in the television series. The BBC Radio 2 series won the duo the Bronze Sony Radio Academy Award for comedy in 2006.
