Garfunkel and Oates are appearing in Headliners between 31 Mar - 3 Apr. The ‘Buy Tickets’ link will take you to ticket sales for ALL Headliners performances. If you want to see this artist, please select dates accordingly.
After a fortuitous meeting at the Upright Citizens Brigade, Riki ‘Garfunkel’ Lindhome and Kate ‘Oates’ Micucci started making beautiful comedy-folk together. Ukulele hits such as Pregnant Women are Smug, Fuck You (as appeared on TV’s Scrubs) and Sex with Ducks established their unique embodiment of wide-eyed innocence and gutter-mouth vulgarity.
“I sang Like A Virgin through a snorkel while playing the ukulele," says Kate aka Oates, about a talent that has seen her appear in a recurring role as a babysitter on Raising Hope.
Riki aka Garfunkel has also featured in numerous episodes of the Gilmore Girls, as well as in the Clint Eastwood movie Million Dollar Baby.
Garfunkel and Oates are proudly named after 'two famous rock-and-roll second bananas' – Art Garfunkel and John Oates.
“There's more of a bite to Garfunkel & Oates' attitude than the pretty faces of their members might suggest.” Time Out New York
“Mix quirky guitar and ukulele tunes with lyrics that are equally profane and sweet.” newtv.com
