Jemaine Clement and Miranda Manasiadis support the cause of Burmese freedom - late 2007


Flight of the Conchords' bespectacled star Jemaine Clement has married his long-time girlfriend, Miranda Manasiadis, whilst on a break from writing the second season of the hit show.

They were married in a Los Angeles registry office in front of a close group of friends, including his co-star Bret McKenzie. The Kiwi comedy pair are currently based in New York preparing for filming new episodes of the Emmy-nominated HBO series.

As well as being a very funny chap Jemaine is also partial to a good cause and was last year snapped by Scoop with Miranda supporting the cause of Burmese democracy in Wellington's Civic Square.

  • Manasiadis is a thespian, having had major roles in plays at Wellington's Circa and Bats theatres as well as writing and directing her own production, 'The Singularity' for Afterburner, which was staged at Peter Jackson's Stone Street Studios this year. She also had a small part in Eagle vs Shark, the 2007 kiwi feature that Clement starred in as a nerdy goofball looking for love. In that film Mr Clement found love in the arms of another woman. Thankfully for his recent, presumably happy wedding, the film was only make believe.

    The First Attack On The Independents: Albanese Hobbles The Crossbench
    It did not take long for the new Australian Labor government to flex its muscle foolishly in response to the large crossbench of independents and small party members of Parliament. Despite promising a new age of transparency and accountability after the election of May 21, one of the first notable acts of the Albanese government was to attack the very people who gave voice to that movement. Dangerously, old party rule, however slim, is again found boneheaded and wanting... More>>

    Binoy Kampmark: Predictable Monstrosities: Priti Patel Approves Assange’s Extradition
    The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner. In April, Chief Magistrate Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring expressed the view that he was “duty-bound” to send the case to Priti Patel to decide on whether to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 grafted from the US Espionage Act of 1917...

    Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

    Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... More>>

    Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
    The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>
