Garfunkel and Oates

‘Garfunkel and Oates’ and the Sea Change for Women in Comedy

Kate Micucci and Riki Lindholme are Garfunkel and Oates.

You probably know Garfunkel and Oates from their funny songs on YouTube, but you might have missed the eight-episode series they had last summer on IFC (I’m guessing most people did, because it got cancelled). But the series is now available on Netflix Streaming, and it is just the right level of quality where you’ll be happy you watched it but not miserable that there won’t be any more episodes.

It’s also an interesting study on some of the issues facing (caps-for-seriousness) “Women in Comedy.”
