Fred Savage Will Direct All of the 'Garfunkel and Oates' IFC Show

Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci of the musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates have an IFC show out soon, and according to THR, child star-turned-director Fred Savage has signed on to direct the series. Savage has had tons of experience directing both single and multi-cam comedies, including episodes of Modern Family, Party Down, Happy Endings, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and 2 Broke Girls, not to mention every episode of Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair's short-lived but beloved NBC series Best Friends Forever. Jonathan Stern (Children's Hospital, Burning Love) will serve as executive producer with former head SNL writer Dennis McNicholas on as showrunner. Garfunkel and [...]

Vine 5 Film Festival: We Are All Somebody's Cousin

Vine is a toy from Twitter that challenges users to make the most profound work ever committed to video in exactly six seconds. Or at the very least, challenges comedians to bring a little more laughter into this world. Every Tuesday we showcase five of the funniest short shorts of the past week.

Your RSS feed might be difficult and not show the videos, but trust us – they are there.

It was at the beginning of this very summer of two thousand thirteen Anno Domini when we all wondered why Kanye was asking for croissants in such an aggressive tone, yet all people want to talk about now, [...]

Garfunkel and Oates Met the Real John Oates but Have No Video Evidence

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?"

IFC Orders a Garfunkel and Oates TV Show, Coming in 2014

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 [...]

Watch Matt Damon's Funny PSA About the Clean Water Crisis

Here's a video for Water.org, the water crisis non-profit co-founded by Matt Damon, in which Damon holds a press conference to swear off going to the bathroom until developing countries have safe drinking water and sanitation. It features appearances from Pete Holmes, Kate Micucci, Stephen Root, and plenty of other funny people as reporters. This is easily the funniest video about water scarcity you'll see all day (or ever, probably).

Garfunkel & Oates on Being 29 vs. Being 31 (29 Wins in a Landslide)

When we last checked in with Ms. Garfunkel and Ms. Oates, they were getting over a break up and dressing up cats. Now they're back, singing (and screaming) about how being alone at 31 is 12 zillion times worse than being alone at 29. Both videos raise the question: why isn't everyone always trying to marry both of them? Seriously. Speaking for everyone who writes for or reads this site, Garfunkel or Oates, we'd really like to marry you this weekend, if not sooner. Maybe they'll meet a male musical comedy duo named Simon & Hall, where one plays the bass guitar and the other a baritone ukulele, [...]
