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

fun female comedy duo
15 February 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci star as their alternate self trying to make it in L.A. as the comedic musical duo Garfunkel and Oates. They have various misadventures as single gals in the modern world.

I love both Lindhome and Micucci individually in their various shows. Lindhome is obviously statuette but also shows a sense of humor when needed. Micucci is the quirky one with her bulging eyes and her ukulele playing. I didn't know they're a writing team but apparently they've been doing this for quite some time. They seem to be a part of a new wave of female comedy duos. Garfunkel and Oates is not necessarily the best but they are very, very good. They are very likable which balances out their edgy quirkiness. This is a small show still struggling to find its feet after an eight episode first season when it doesn't get renewed. The girls need to find a circle of supporting characters that could interact with them in every episode.
