Squirm & Germ
Squirm & Germ
Squirm and Germ is a high-energy music comedy duo created by Tim Girrbach and Rodney Umble.
These 2 MC's use their hip-hop alter egos to celebrate/parody their irreverent passions through an original, uproarious and self-deprecating voice. With influences ranging from The Gorillaz to Slick Rick and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, S&G produce infectious beats, 80's/90's inspired synth hooks, legit harmonies reminiscent of Rockapella, and rhyme faster than a kid who drank five Red Bulls at a sleepover. They are often compared to Flight of the Conchords, The Beastie Boys, The Lonely Island, and The Vienna Boys Choir.
NY Funny Song Fest
NY Funny Songs Fest is a fast growing indie festival created by the comedy musicians of NYC for the comedy musicians of the world. Our mission is to seek out fun, funny people who pair comedy with music, seek out an audience of fun, funny people who love comedy music, and then put them together. Annually. Events include classes, parties, shows, panels and more.
Afterbirth Monkey
Afterbirth Monkey
Afterbirth Monkey is a comedy band based out of Astoria, NY. They derive everything they do from intoxication and magic. They are the showband on an epic podcast from across the pond known as Absolute Mayhem formerly known as Minutes of Mayhem. Neal Mayhem is now one of their false idols.

They may also know them to play sexy things with a group called the Lemonade Stand Band. You should exercise caution when crossing the street for tacos at the taco truck while intoxicated because Afterbirth Monkey will be waiting there and you will probably want to do it with them while you wait for your order.
