Garfunkel and Oates is an American comedy-folk duo from Los Angeles, California, consisting of actress-songwriters Kate Micucci (Oates) and Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel). The band name is derived from "two famous rock-and-roll second bananas", Art Garfunkel and John Oates.[1]

History[edit]

The two met at the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre in Los Angeles, where they were introduced to one another by comic Doug Benson. The duo was formed when they started working together to turn a short film made by Lindhome, titled Imaginary Larry, into a musical.[2][3] Lindhome is from Portville, New York; Micucci is from Nazareth, Pennsylvania.[4]

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.

Performing at their Christmas show, December 2009

On December 14, 2009, Garfunkel and Oates were on The Jay Leno Show to perform their song "Year End Letter". On The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, they have performed "Pregnant Women Are Smug" on March 12, 2010,[5] and "Self-Esteem" on May 18, 2010.[6] In late October 2010, they performed "Weed Card" on The Tonight Show.

In 2010, they were featured on the track "These Girls", on Childish Gambino's album, Culdesac.

On January 13, 2011, Garfunkel and Oates signed a deal with HBO for a pilot for their own show.[7][8] Lindhome has described it as "Glee with dick jokes".[9] HBO later decided not to go forward with the show.[10] In August 2012, webisodes were posted to HBO's online service.

On October 7, 2011, they released a song for David Wain's web series Wainy Days titled "David Wain Is Sexy" and is available on the extras on the DVD of Wainy Days.[citation needed]

On June 8, 2012, Comedy Central featured an episode of The Half Hour with Garfunkel and Oates.[citation needed]

On June 25, 2013, the duo released their music video "The Loophole", a song about Christian girls retaining their virginity by performing anal sex, which is not specifically forbidden in the Bible.[11]

On September 30, 2013, IFC network green-lighted Garfunkel & Oates, a 10-episode half-hour featuring the duo for a 2014 premiere.[12]
