Most people probably recognize Kate Micucci from the TV show “Scrubs” as Stephanie Gooch, a
local musician who performed for patients. But what made her character special

he’s right

In February, Garfunkel & Oates released their debut album “All Over Your
Face,” and the two continue to perform regularly.

When Kate met with CNN in Chicago, she didn’t have her ukulele. However, CNN

And then she performed a funny song about napping with a
