For many stand ups, musical comedians are just one step above prop comics. I don’t care how you make me laugh. Funny is funny. Personally, I have a soft spot for singing comedians. I love Stephen Lynch, I dearly miss the Flight of the Conchords show, and I can still listen to Tencacious D’s first album on a consistent basis.
Here is a new (in the sense that people are starting to pay attention) act that I have been enjoying as of late. Just put Garfunkel and Oates into your Youtube search and you can sift through their mountain of videos. Here are a few personal favorites.
P.S. Any fans of Scrubs and/or Raising Hope may recognize a familiar face.
P.S.S. I would like to nominate their new album for best album title of the year. That’s it up top.
P.S.S.S. Very NSFW
