Folk music can be a voice of the people that can expose social ills and unite the downtrodden. It can also be used to make people laugh about smug pregnant women and the process of obtaining a medical marijuana prescription in California.
The hilarious acoustic recordings of Garfunkel and Oates have been racking up views and laughs on YouTube and Funny or Die for years now, and are finally making the jump to television with a recently announced series on cable channel IFC. The series will feature songs not unlike "Weed Card" and "Sex with Ducks" and will revolve around their scripted personal and professional lives and the consequenses of their career choices.
Garfunkel and Oates premieres on IFC in 2014.
