Garfunkle and Oates Biography

Garfunkel and Oates is a comedy-folk duo from Los Angeles, California, consisting of actress-songwriters Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome. The two met at the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre in Los Angeles. The duet was formed when they started working together to turn a short film made by Lindhome, entitled Imaginary Larry, into a musical.

In February 2009, the Garfunkel and Oates song "F* You" (reworked as "Screw You") was featured in the Scrubs episode My Lawyer's In Love which featured Micucci in a supporting role. In March 2009, Micucci announced in a bulletin on MySpace that the two had entered the studio to record an EP.

Their video Sex With Ducks that parodies arguments against same-sex marriage has been featured on such diverse media outlets as Buzzflash.com, FOX's The O'Reilly Factor, HuffingtonPost.com, and others.

Other songs include "Me, You, and Steve", a song about being on a date with a guy, but his best friend keeps showing up; "Pregnant Women Are Smug", which parodies the comments women make when pregnant; and "Present Face", about the face that people make when they get a Christmas Present they really don't like. In 2010, they were featured on the track These Girls on Childish Gambino's album Culdesac. In 2011, they released an album entitled, All Over Your Face.

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" and "Self-Esteem." In late October 2010, they performed a song about medical marijuana on The Tonight Show. On June 8, 2012, Comedy Central featured an episode of The Half Hour with Garfunkel and Oates.

In 2011, Garfunkel and Oates signed a deal with HBO for a pilot of their own show. Lindhome has described it as "Glee with dick jokes." HBO later decided not to go forward with the show, but in August 2012, HBO released the pilot as five webisodes through its online service.

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. As of March 2017, it was the most-watched video on their channel, with over 9 million views.

On September 30, 2013, IFC network green-lit Garfunkel and Oates, an eight-episode half-hour show featuring the duo. The show premiered on August 7, 2014 and was cancelled on March 3, 2015. Afterwards, the series was released on Netflix.

In "The Romance Resonance", an episode of the television sitcom The Big Bang Theory, the character Howard plays the song "If I Didn't Have You (Bernadette's Song)", written by Garfunkel and Oates, for his wife Bernadette. Micucci and Lindhome both have recurring roles in the series.

April 13, 2016, saw the release of their Vimeo special Garfunkel and Oates: Trying to be Special, in which Kate and Riki decide to host a fundraising concert so they may afford to film their very own special. It features live performances from their album Secretions, with them playing some old favorites. The song "Frozen Lullaby" was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.

In 2018, on The Nerdist Podcast, Lindhome stated that she wants to bring back her own long-paused podcast and that she and Kate have been writing a musical.

In 2019, the duo released a "Tween Dream" Remix version of the Song "Everything is Awesome" from The Lego Movie for its sequel, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.
