Kate Micucci, Co-star of “Don’t Think Twice”

The Garfunkel and Oates-er Discusses Her Latest Movie

Jul 21, 2016

In Don’t Think Twice, Kate Micucci plays Allison, a member of the tightly-knit improv group The Commune, whose performance space is unexpectedly shut down when their landlord gives them the boot. As her best friends and longtime collaborators splinter and go their separate ways, her character turns back to a cartooning career she let fall by the wayside many years earlier. Micucci is a cartoonist herself, which was something that excited the film’s director, Mike Birbiglia. The filmmaker incorporated Micucci’s real drawings into the movie, in which he also stars with Keegan-Michael Key, Chris Gethard, Gillian Jacobs, and Tami Sagher. More

Breaking Barriers and Cracking Up

May 19, 2011

Looking over the history of musical comedy, from Vaudeville to Monty Python and “Weird Al” Yankovic to The Lonely Island, one would get the impression that having a Y-chromosome is a prerequisite for being able to write and sing funny songs. But don’t tell that to Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome, the duo behind Garfunkel and Oates and the stars of an upcoming HBO series that will bring to life their delightfully twisted slice-of-life observations. With sugary sweet harmonies and lullaby hooks prettying up songs about handjobs (“I Don’t Understand Job”) and getting medical marijuana prescriptions (“Weed Card”), their music is as playfully charming as it cleverly subversive.
