*Very* weird for sure. TBH SNL has nothing on those two and their live stuff. I absolutely loved their live stage stuff and at the time preferred it over the Conchords set. I was crying at their act and at one point laughed so loudly when no one else did as I totally got something Taika did and I don't think the other 17 or so people watching really did. I think Taika and Jemaine work so well together and Jemaine had/s a very different presence when performing physical comedy with Taika. His partnership with Bret is much more gentle because of what the Conchords do. Jemaine and Taika can unleash their stuff in an act and really get their teeth into the material they create and Jemaine gets to act also. Also Taika has this amazing energy about him. Maybe not so much when off stage, but on it, he's very switched on.
I'd love more live stuff from Humourbeasts but don't expect it to happen. I recall Taika not really liking the whole Edinburgh experience and not wanting to come back and do it over again. But they may well do something at home and take on the road to a few places there. I think Taika likes it behind the camera and writing more these days also. But he has such a great personality and is a fun bloke, so I don't think another stab at comedy himself or with others live is out of the question.
And yes, I remember posting this on the main site when it ran. Can't remember where it is on the forum, I think in the Jemaine section somewhere.
