Biography

Bret Peter Tarrant McKenzie (born 29 June, 1976 in Wellington, New Zealand) is a musician, actor, producer, writer and comedian, best known for being half of the musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords with Jemaine Clement.

McKenzie is a former member of The Black Seeds. He has released an album called Prototype as Video Kid and is a member of the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. McKenzie attended Clifton Terrace Model School (model in the sense of a standard school for training teachers; not a school for models), Wellington College and then Victoria University of Wellington where he met Jemaine Clement who was also studying film and theatre. Together they were members of So You’re a Man. They later formed Flight of the Conchords.

As The Conchords they have toured internationally and released three CDs: Folk the World Tour in 2002, Grammy Award-winning The Distant Future in 2007, and Grammy nominated Flight of the Conchords in 2008. The Conchords produced a six-part improvisational comedy radio program for the BBC and have appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show. After a successful appearance in 2005 on HBOs One Night Stand, the Conchords were offered their own 12-part HBO series Flight of the Conchords. Its first season ran from June to September 2007, and its second season premiered on HBO January 18, 2009.
