still doing those songs
31 December 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci are Garfunkel and Oates. I think Riki is Garfunkel and Kate is Oates. Like their opening act Anthony says, the girls are still doing those songs. They're trying to get the money to make a TV special if the onstage thermometer reaches 100%. Don't ask. They go on stage to do many of their songs including some favorites. If you like songs about dicks, this is the special for you. There are a couple of funny stories and one music miscue. The girls are endearing and fun. They're a cute-awkward-single-gal comedy duo. If you like their show or their music, this is great. If you never heard of them, give it a try. If you don't like them, then what are you doing here?
