Venue: Berkeley Community Theatre
Remarks: Man, what an entertaining night with lots of laughs to go around. There were two shows and we ended up going to the 9:00 show. It was chaos with all the people leaving the earlier show at the same time everyone else was trying to get in to the second show. It was a giant legion of Conchord fans! The crowd was really into it, snapping pictures, screaming out to Jemaine and Bret, who in turn shot back with humorous off-the-cuff remarks. The opening act was Arj Barker who plays Dave on the TV series. Funny guy all around, and also enlightening too. He brings up the good point that we blame the toaster for burnt toast, not the piece of bread, so we should be blaming the sun for global warming. Man, all those brilliant scientists and all it really takes is a comedian to figure all this out.
