I am continuing the process of educating my children in good comedy: particularly the oldest. How can he navigate through the world of comedy- learn what is good, what is uplifting and what can be sniggered inanely at without neccesarily repeating back, word for word to his 8 year old brother?
So last week, I tried selected extracts of ‘Flight of the Conchords’ ;I have the complete boxset and I think it is one of the finest comedies I have ever seen (mind you, most things made by HBO tend to be good). It is not immediate, but nothing really worth it is. A good friend bought me the CD a few years back: normally comedy records are pants- this one wasn’t.
However, this song is enjoyed by all the male members of our household; so much so that the youngest printed off the lyrics and took them into school….
