Garfunkel and Oates is a comedy-folk duo from Los Angeles, California, consisting of actress-songwriters Kate Micucci (Oates) and Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel). The two met at the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre in Los Angeles, where they were introduced to one another by comic Doug Benson. The duet was formed when they started working together to turn a short film made by Lindhome, entitled "Imaginary Larry", into a musical.
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 the comments women make when pregnant; and "Present Face", about the face that people make when they get a Christmas present they really don't like.
Recently, Garfunkel and Oates signed a deal with HBO for a pilot for their own show. Lindhome has described it as "Glee with dick jokes".
