More comedy music acts

* FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS

Brett McKenzie and Jemaine Clement once declared that they're "New Zealand's fourth-most-popular guitar-based digi-bongo a cappella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo".

Now, they claim to be, "the almost award- winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand".

* ROCK N' LAUGHTER

Musical Comedy that tickles the funny bone, and rawks!

* THE RUBBERBANDITS

Limerick's own hip-hop comedy duo won the Edinburgh Festival Award for being the most original act in the Fringe. They unveiled a new song on Republic of Telly last week where the lads with plastic bags on their heads give some career direction to Boyzone of all people.

* 'WEIRD AL' JANKOVIC

Nirvana, Michael Jackson and James Blunt have all been the brunt of Weird Al's jokes. Jankovic recently received laser eye surgery and shaved off his trademark moustache. He remarked: "If Madonna's allowed to reinvent herself every 15 minutes, I figure I should be good for a change at least once every 20 years."

* SPINAL TAP

The original and still the best. This is Spinal Tap improves with every viewing. Who can forget that immortal onstage war cry, "We are Spinal Tap from the UK -- you must be the USA!"

As they so say themselves: "There's a fine line between stupid and clever."
