SQUIRM AND GERM is a high-energy music comedy duo hailing from NYC. These two MC's use their hip-hop alter egos to celebrate their irreverent passions in life with songs about everything from active pregnancies to the state of Maine, naps and neti pots. They produce infectious beats, legit harmonies reminiscent of Rockapella, and rhyme faster than a kid who drank five Red Bulls at a sleepover.
Their raucous live show is for music lovers with an appreciation for hip-hop, funk, rock, tasty synths, club jams, and rapid fire pop culture references. This will be their first time playing in Norfolk and they hope everybody is ready to jump out of their seats for a ridiculous feel-good party!
Squirm and Germ (Tim Girrbach and Rodney Umble) have rocked the mic at a number of notable venues around NYC including The Apollo, Joe's Pub, Ars Nova, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre East, Tammany Hall, and the 92Y Tribeca. INNY Award nominees for "Maine, MoFo" (Best Comedy Song and Video) and Official Selections of NYC Comedy Week, NY Funny Songs Fest, Empire Comedy Festival, ANT Fest at Ars Nova, Philly Funny Songs Fest, and the 2014 Charleston Comedy Festival. With their sketch group Drop Six they performed in the Sketch Comedy Festivals of D.C., NYC, Seattle, and won Best of the Fest at the 2007 Toronto Sketch Fest.
S&G have trained extensively in improvisation at the Second City, Upright Citizens Brigade, and Magnet Theaters. Their debut album 'Late Bloomers' was co-produced by Sammy Bananas of Fool's Gold Records and is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and Pandora.
