10 Musical Comedy Acts We Love

10 Musical Comedy Acts We Love

By Jennifer Grudziecki

We love music, and we love comedy, so we LOVE musical comedy. But who are the best musical comedians out there? We're pretty sure it's these guys.

1. Garfunkel & Oates: If you like hilarious parodies, you'll love this female duo made of Katie Micucci and Riki Lindhome.

2. The Gregory Brothers:If you're wondering who auto tunes the news, it's The Gregory Brothers. They also do this hilarious "Songify This" series.

3. Flight of the Conchords: Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement refer to themselves as "the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand." That about sums it up.

4. Julian Smith: His YouTube videos aren't always musical, but when they are, they're pretty awesome.

5. Tenacious D: This musical comedy act specializes in "mock rock" and absurdity. What else would you expect from Jack Black and Kyle Gass?

6. Stephen Lynch: The witty Lynch mocks pop culture and life in a way that makes you want to laugh and cry at the same time.

7. Bo Burnham: If you're looking for political incorrectness and hilarious inpropriety, Bo Burnham is your guy.

8. Reggie Watts masters the art of stream-of-consciousness musical stand-up comedy. Yeah, we know.

9. Nick Thune is hilarious and attractive. Win.

10. Rhett and Link: Like Julian Smith, Rhett and Link don't always do musical comedy. But they do rock at it.

Who's your favorite musical comedy act?
