It turns out, the Berkeley Community Theater is not the best place to see comedians. One wants a cocktail table and a cocktail. That said, Monday night’s comedy concert with headliners Flight of the Conchords was about as great as a stadium-sized stand-up comedy event featuring large screen monitors to better see the performers’ facial expressions could be.
Before HBO, Flight of the Conchords were known as New Zealand's 4th most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo. They developed a cult following (I, too drank the cool-aid) and snagged an HBO series...which was hipster doofus nirvana for about half of the first season.
