Garfunkel and Oates is a duo made up of two of the most bad-ass women in comedy and music. The funny team made up of singer/actresses Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel) and Kate Micucci (Oates) writes and performs some of the dirtiest, cutest, catchiest indie music around.
Men usually dominate the musical-comedy scene with individuals such as Bo Burnham and Stephen Lynch or groups such as The Axis of Awesome setting the bar. Garfunkel and Oates changed that when they formed in 2007. The duo has been described as the “Female Flight of the Conchords” by the Wall Street Journal. Named after the sidekicks in Simon and Garfunkel and Hall and Oates, not only is Garfunkel and Oates probably the funniest female musical-comedy group in the business, they might be the only.
Riki Lindhome has acted in movies such as “Million Dollar Baby” while you might recognize Kate Micucci from her reoccurring role on “Scrubs” as Lawyer Ted’s love interest. Their most recent album, Slippery When Moist feature songs we love such as “Handjob, Blowjob, I Don’t Understand Job” and “My Apartment’s Very Clean Without You.”
The hilarious duo will be performing at The Neptune Theatre in Seattle on November 1st and The ‘Burg has all the hookups. Tune-in to Geek Speak tomorrow (10/25) between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m for a chance to win tickets to the Seattle show. We will also give a pair away Monday (10/28) between 3 and 6 p.m. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see this pretty, witty group!
