Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie moved to New York City to capitalize on their popularity as 'New Zealand's 4th Most Popular Folk Parody Duo.' Unfortunately, despite living as Big Apple bohemians for over a year, they remain hopelessly out of place! Will Bret and Jemaine find excitement, romance and a paying music gig? Find out in Season Two of this HBO comedy series as the boys resort to a variety of desperate tactics to jump-start their lives and career. These include: turning to prostitution as a way to pay the bills; starting up a gang; impersonating Simon & Garfunkel in a look-alike contest; falling for the same girl (what else is new?); even dating an Australian (a taboo in New Zealand). As usual, their misguided efforts rarely yield dividends, but they do spawn laughs and some all-new Conchord tunes about life, love and the pursuit of an elusive music video.
