James Bobin Loves NPR

The Muppets director, James Bobin, stopped by NPR West for no reason other than to show some NPR love.

Bobin is the creator of HBO comedy series Flight of the Conchords, and he recently reunited with one member of show's dynamic, Grammy Award-winning duo, Bret McKenzie, in The Muppets, which NPR's own Linda Holmes said, "[does] justice to the lovers and the dreamers."

Bobin's not exactly a newbie to comedy: The British writer has previously worked on both the 11 O'Clock Show and Da Ali G Show; a time during which he helped create, in addition to Ali G, the characters Borat and Bruno.

Thanks, James! We promise not to Forget You.
