The Funn(k)y Drummer

The Crazy Dogggz, "Doggy Bounce"

TODD BARRY
Barry is a wickedly funny stand-up whose sotto-voce musings on the inane and the banal should be part of any humor fan's comedy diet. But you may know him best as "the third Conchord." When, on Flight of the Conchords, Bret and Jemaine's manager Murray hires Todd as a bongo player for their folk act without consulting them, the seeds of discord are sown. He's a showboat bongo soloist, and an aspiring songwriter to boot. Luckily (or not, depending on your perspective), before long Todd opts to form his own band, the Crazy Dogggz. Barry doesn't just play a drummer on TV. He was a member of mid-80s "paisley underground" garage revival band the Chant.
