Music: Garfunkel And Oates
Female comedy pop duo consisting of Riki "Garfunkel" Lindhome and Kate "Oates" Micucci. They met at summer camp as children and again years later at the Upright Theatre in Los Angeles and named their band after "Pop's most famous second bananas" (Art Garfunkel of Simon & Garfunkel and John Oates of Hall & Oates).

They write their own songs which make free use of the vernacular, with titles such as "This Party Just took a turn for the Douche" and "Fuck you" (which featured on Scrubs bowdlerized as "Screw You"). They also comment on current events, such as "Sex with Ducks" (a reply to Pat Robertson's comment that if same-sex marriage were permitted, why not bestiality) and "Why isn't there more Fucking on this Island?" (a reference to LOST). They've even parodied one of their own songs with I would Never Dissect a Ewe (as Simon & Hall!), a take off of I Would Never Have Sex With You.

Recently got their own comedy series on IFC.
