Musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates (Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci) are the latest to contribute a story to Vulture and UCB's half-animated video series "Pop Culture Memory Lane." Their tale concerns meeting their hero and namesake John Oates, of Hall and Oates fame, and performing a show with him. Unfortunately, Lindhome's mom messed up when filming the set and only recorded the audio. John Oates contacted Garfunkel and Oates on MySpace, but it was 2008, so that's forgivable. I have a feeling that John Oates is still using MySpace, though, wondering to himself, "Where did everyone go?"
Here's the lastest video from Garfunkel & Oates: This Party Took a Turn for the Douche. If you're wondering what they can do with some cash now that they're working on a show for HBO, this is a pretty good indication. Featuring cameos from fun people such as Sarah Silverman, Tig Notaro, Alia Shawkat and Har Mar Superstar.
LA's musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates have a great new song/video called "I Don't Understand Job," which is about the mysteries of the hand job but also about making as many wonderfully punny references as humanly possible in a scant three minutes.
IFC announced this morning that they've ordered a new TV show from musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates. Made up of comedians Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel) and Kate Micucci (Oates), Garfunkel and Oates began as a live act in 2007 and the duo's web videos have become viral successes. The show, also called Garfunkel and Oates, will debut sometime in 2014 and the first season will consist of 10 episodes. Here's the plot description:
Garfunkel and Oates will spotlight the personal and professional lives of the duo whose career choices – singing satirical and sometimes dirty songs – leaves them with little in common with their peers, and no one [...]
Garfunkel and Oates were reported to have made a deal to shoot a pilot for HBO last year, and it appears this is what came of it: it's been cut into five shorts, all between three and six minutes long, available exclusively on HBO GO under the HBO Digitals banner. The one above is the second in the series, and it's a full-blown music video to go along with their song "Pregnant Women Are Smug." It's the only short that's solely a music video; the first one is about Jon Daly and Thomas Middleditch's unsuccessful hookup attempts with our heroes, for example, and they all fit together to [...]
David Wain has craftily enlisted the musical stylings of Garfunkel & Oates to sing about how sexy he is, AS IF we didn't already know. Like most G&O songs, this one is catchy enough that you'll probably be sing-humming it all day, unknowingly hammering the image of licking the sweaty David Wain into your unconscious mind until it's all you can dream about! Hmm. I gotta get these two to write a song about how employable and talented I am.
Let’s get one thing straight: Riki Lindhome is Art Garfunkel and Kate Micucci is John Oates — not the other way around. The reasons why the musical-comedy duo has come to inhabit these specific roles are actually pretty simple, though. “Riki's Garfunkel because she's tall and blonde,” Kate says. “I'm Oates because I'm short and if I'm not careful, I can get a mustache.”
Over the past two years, Riki and Kate have been popping up on stages and computer screens everywhere as Garfunkel & Oates, building their reputation one ukulele solo at a time. Their original comedy songs run through many different styles, stemming from a shared [...]

Why anyone would break up with Garfunkel and/or Oates (Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, respectively), is beyond me. Yet some messy boy or boys did and all G&O can do is clean, sing sadly, and put on an adorable play where cats dress up as everything from sponges to Molotov cocktails to DVD copies of The Last Boy Scout. At least, they have each other and their fans and all those crazy cats (except the one dressed up like an ashtray, she’s mine).
If there's one thing LA has over its perpetual friendly rival NYC, it's the "medicinal" marijuana laws. Garfunkel & Oates rub it in the east coast's face in their new video, which features David Koechner and really high (har) production values. Look what an HBO deal can do for the quality of your music videos!
Garfunkel and Oates, the adorable musical comedy duo, have landed a development deal with HBO to create a new show for the network. This is exciting! They've got big shoes to fill in the musical comedy department over there, with the incredible Flight of the Conchords being the last show of that genre on HBO, but I think they're up to it.
