Garfunkel and Oates
SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
I happened upon the youtube video immediately below and fell in love with the comedy-duo known as Garfunkel and Oates. They have their own website!
Garfunkel and Oates is a comedy-folk duo from Los Angeles, California, consisting of actress-songwriters Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome.The two met at the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre in Los Angeles, where they were introduced to one another by comic Doug Benson. The duet was formed when they started working together to turn a short film made by Lindhome, entitled “Imaginary Larry”, into a musical. Lindhome hails from Portville, New York; Micucci is from Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
In February 2009, the Garfunkel and Oates song “Fuck You” (reworked as “Screw You”) was featured in the Scrubs episode “My Lawyer’s In Love” which featured Micucci in a supporting role. In March 2009, Micucci announced in a bulletin on MySpace that the two had entered the studio to record an EP.
Their video “Sex With Ducks” that parodies arguments against same-sex marriage has been featured on such diverse media outlets as Buzzflash.com, FOX’s “The O’Reilly Factor”, HuffingtonPost.com, and others.
