FUNNY FELLOWS: Flight of the Conchords Jemaine Clement, left, and Brett McKenzie perform in a sold-out concert at the CBS Canterbury Arena in Christchurch last night.
The wait finally came to an end for thousands of Christchurch fans of Flight of the Conchords last night.
In March, hundreds camped overnight outside the CBS Canterbury Arena to buy tickets for the popular duo.
Last night, at a packed CBS Canterbury Arena, it was finally Business Time.
The New Zealand folk-comedy duo of Oscar winner Bret McKenzie and Emmy nominee Jemaine Clement received a huge ovation in Christchurch.
At about 8.50pm, the duo, wearing boxes on their heads, came on stage, starting their set with Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor.
"If you really investigate the lyrics, you'll be richly rewarded," said Clement.
The Conchords were supported by United States comedian Arj Barker.
Fans counted down to the concert on Twitter last night.
"Listening to Flight of the Conchords at work and randomly cracking up laughing at my desk. Yaaaay #FOTC tonight!" tweeted Hayley Payne in Christchurch.
"Getting pumped for @arjbarker and @fotc in Christchurch tonight!" tweeted Michael Jeffcott.
"U aint alone, dawg," Arj Barker tweeted back to him.
The proceeds of the concert will go towards Cholmondeley Children's Home and the restoration of the Isaac Theatre Royal.
Flight of the Conchords are set to play in Nelson's Trafalgar Centre to-night.
“Christchurch at intermission #keen #fotc”
