Storyline

Garfunkel and Oates stars Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci as both themselves and their musical comedy alter-egos, "Garfunkel and Oates," following the pair as they try to expand the reaches of their meager celebrity. Well-known on the improv-comedy scene, Micucci and Lindhome met at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in LA, naming their band for "two famous rock-and-roll second bananas," Art Garfunkel and John Oates. In five bite-sized episodes, Riki and Kate skewer taboos and perform tongue-in-cheek songs about their woeful lives as single, late-20-something Los Angelinos. Written by Anonymous

quietly, an amazingly funny show
13 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I stumbled across this in Netflix, and it is my favorite find, so far. I was a fan of the duo from 'Pregnant Women are Smug' and similarly funny youTube videos, but this show exceeded all expectations. Especially the second half of the season, where each episode seems to start with a ridiculous premise, and hilarity reliably ensues.

Each episode is dense with jokes and charm, I'm only sorry that there aren't more episodes. The plots are light-hearted, but every thread seems to pay off by the end of each episode. Both characters are well-developed an their friendship is endearing. I especially love the Natasha Leggero and other great cameo appearances. I hope this show can return again soon!
