McKenzie is a former member of The Black Seeds. He has released an album called Prototype as Video Kid and is a member of the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. McKenzie attended Clifton Terrace Model School (model in the sense of a standard school for training teachers; not a school for models),Wellington College and then Victoria University of Wellington where he met Jemaine Clement who was also studying film and theatre. Together they were members of So You're a Man. They later formed Flight of the Conchords.

As The Conchords they have toured internationally and released four CDs: Folk the World Tour in 2002, Grammy Award-winning The Distant Future in 2007, Grammy nominated Flight of the Conchords in 2008, and I Told You I Was Freaky in 2009. The Conchords produced a six-part improvisational comedy radio program for the BBC and have appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. After a successful appearance in 2005 on HBOs One Night Stand , the Conchords were offered their own 12-part HBO series Flight of the Conchords. Its first season ran from June to September 2007, and its second season premiered on HBO January 18, 2009.
McKenzie has appeared in the first and third films in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. His silent role in the first film achieved some minor internet fame asFigwit, which led to Jackson giving him a line in the third film.

His father Peter McKenzie played the role of Elendil in Lord of the Rings.
