JEMAINE CLEMENT (Nigel), a native New Zealander, has been involved in a wide array of projects on stage, radio, television and film.

Clement formed, with Takia Cohen, the sketch comedy duo The Humourbeasts. Earlier, in1998, Clement joined fellow New Zealander Bret McKenzie in an endeavor initially intended as a vehicle for the two burgeoning entertainers to learn guitar. The duo performed very briefly under the monikers Moustache and Vested Interest before arriving at the name Flight of the Conchords. They have since been named Best Alternative Comedy Act at the 2005 Comedy Arts Festival, Best Newcomer at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and been nominated for the Perrier Comedy award at the Edinburgh Film Festival.

They released a live album called "Folk in the World” and a six-part BBC Radio series for which they won a U.K. Comedy Award. In 2005, FOTC made numerous late night appearances and filmed a "One Night Stand” for HBO. It then became a popular HBO series, which followed the trials and tribulations of a two-man digi-folk band from New Zealand as they try to make a name for themselves in their adopted home in New York City. The show aired from 2007 to 2009.

Clement's film credits include "Dinner for Schmucks,” a voice role in "Despicable Me,” "Tongan Ninja” and "Eagle vs. Shark,” the latter written and directed by Clements' Humorbeasts partner Takia Cohen.
