Garfunkel and Oates

I'm in love with the barely contained anti-social rage. And the ukulele. Their names are Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci. Can they be on TV all the time? Please?

So Kate was a recurring character on Scrubs for a while, as sweaty lawyer Ted's girlfriend and the weird, sometimes violent Uke player who sang to the kids in the children's ward. On at least one episode she and Ted dueted on a safe for television version of G&O's "F**k You." That and she is always around in those Hillshire Farms and tax preparation commercials. The joys of being a working actress I suppose.

Rikki is on TV all the time, but usually as a victim of some sort of violent crime in a police procedural, although she had a wonderful spot in an episode of Pushing Daisies. She also made a short film a few years back called Life is Short that is cute in just the right way if you can find it, although last time I looked for it YouTube had yanked it because of copyright issues with the soundtrack.

So, yeah.

Now I think I remember reading about ukuleles cropping up on Scrubs, maybe in Venus Zine. I don't watch a lot of TV because these two don't have their own late night show yet. But now that you mention it Ms. Lindhome suddenly looks at lot more familiar.

Kate also does solo stuff. I love this:
