To celebrate the release of Flight of the Conchords' debut LP this week, today's Three Of A Kind features tracks by a trio of modern-day comic icons.
First up, the Conchords themselves with the not-quite-Barry-White Business Time, being as it is an ode to perfunctory, once-weekly marital sex, rather than any of the more salacious fare that The Walrus Of Love might have come up with (so to speak) himself.
Mildly Interesting Comedy Pop Fact: contributors on the 2006 Flight of the Conchords BBC Radio 2 series included: Greg Proops, Emma Kennedy, Jimmy Carr, Daniel Kitson and, appearing regularly in a reluctant phone mentor role to the band's hapless manager Murray (or Bryan, as Rhys Darby's character was known then), the one and only Neil Finn!
It was great to see footage of early-eighties funk-punks The Higsons on last night's Comedy Map Of Great Britain on BBC2. The band met at the University of East Anglia and were, of course, fronted by The Fast Show and Down The Line legend Charlie "Switch" Higson - hence their appearance on the Comedy Map.

Mackenzie Crook and Martin Freeman's background contributions to this shouldn't be underestimated either. Completely bloody hilarious.
