It was announced yesterday (Jan. 11) by Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming that musical comedians Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement will return to HBO this May with an hour-long "Flight of the Conchords" comedy special.

The exclusive presentation will feature the duo performing their classics and new original songs from their "Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords Tour."

The New Zealanders debuted on HBO in 2005 in an edition of the comedy series "One-Night Stand." They then returned to the network in 2007 for the debut season of the series "Flight of the Conchords," which followed fictionalized versions of their lives in New York.

The series earned them 10 Emmy nominations over its two-season run on HBO and in 2008 their album "The Distant Future" won Best Comedy Album at the 2008 Grammy Awards.

The comedy special will be directed by Hamish Hamilton and the executive producers are Jemaine Clement, Bret McKenzie, and Mike Martinovich.
