Is he a man or a muppet? If he's a muppet then he's a very manly muppet.
He's Bret McKenzie and he's one very happy muppet of a man after taking out the coveted 'Best Original Song' Oscar in Hollywood.
The Wellington born 36 year old father of two is known best for being one half of the comedic duo 'Flight of The Concords'. Not as well known is that he's a member of The Wellington International Ukelele Orchestra, and that he was once in the band the'Black Seeds'.
He's one heck of a talented Kiwi and his list of achievements for doing different things is quite impressive.
In 2010 he took up the offer to be music supervisor for 'The Muppet Movie' and ended up writing four of the movies' five original songs for its soundtrack.
