These Chicks Rock: Garfunkel and Oates

This comedy duo released their first full length album, "All Over Your Face," today!  So go get it already.

You know how people say Taylor Swift's songs are just like pages from her diary?  Well Garfunkel and Oates are kind of like that too, but infinitely more personal, and a little dirty.

Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci are really actresses.  They just happen to be extremely musically talented as well.  Like Tenacious D with a heavy dose of estrogen, their jams feature thought-provoking rhymes, the occasional ukulele and lyrics we can all relate to-- I mean, who among us hasn't had a gay boyfriend?

The divas of YouTube, known for their incredible song-writing abilities, have crossed over into rap for their hilarious single "Hand Job, Bland Job, I Don't Understand Job," complete with a music video featured on Funny or Die.

You may have seen Micucci on TV's Scrubs and Lindhome appeared frequently on Gilmore Girls but neither had "landed" a show, per se.  Apparently their Hollywood struggles fostered their creativity, which led to great success.

The two met at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater in LA and have been regulars there ever since.  They recently signed a development deal with HBO, a show is in the works, and it will be epic.
