Comedy Duo Garfunkel and Oates Live at Amoeba Charity Auction

If you haven't heard of Garfunkel and Oates yet, you probably will soon. (No, it's not a long-lost collaboration between folk singer Art Garfunkel and pop/soul singer John Oates.) Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci are two actresses and singers also known as the musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates. They've appeared on Raising Hope, Scrubs, Last House on the Left, Bored to Death, and The Big Bang Theory. They've performed on The Tonight Show and were just signed to a pilot deal with HBO. They also recently hosted our monthly charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood to celebrate the release of their new comedy album, All Over Your Face.

Riki and Kate met at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles and began working together on a short film called Imaginary Larry. As Garfunkel and Oates they create satirical folk songs covering topics like same sex marriage ("Sex With Ducks"), gently telling a guy they aren't interested ("I Would Never [Have Sex With You]"), and the joys of pregnancy ("Pregnant Women Are Smug"). You can buy All Over Your Face here or at Amoeba Hollywood.
