Riki Lindhome, Kate Micucci
Garfunkel and Oates Overview:
Described by the Wall Street Journal
as the "Female Flight of the Conchords," Garfunkel and Oates are the funniest all-girl musical comedy team working today. Unlike some other musical comedy duos, Micucci and Lindhome aren't limited by a concept or shtick -- their funny, catchy songs work as extended jokes on a number of observational topics, ranging from the self-superiority of pregnant women to the lame arguments of same-sex marriage opponents. They start with a clever, original idea for a joke and expand it outward through song.
