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.
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. Lindhome is from Portville, New York; Micucci is from Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
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. In March 2009, Micucci announced in a bulletin on MySpace that the two had entered the studio to record an EP.
Their song Sex With Ducks parodies arguments against same-sex marriage. 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 comments women make when pregnant; and Present Face, about the face that people make when they get a Christmas present they really do not like.
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, and "Self-Esteem" on May 18, 2010. In late October 2010, they performed Weed Card on The Tonight Show.
On December 9, 2010, the duo announced on YouTube that they are coming out with a new album titled All Over Your Face. Also 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. Lindhome has described it as "Glee with dick jokes". HBO later decided not to go forward with the show. In August 2012, webisodes were posted to HBO's online service.
Both Riki and Kate have appeared in episodes of The Big Bang Theory.
