"Weird Al" Yankovic

“Weird Al” Yankovic has been America’s foremost musical parodist for over three decades. His work transcends the “novelty music” genre and has been named by other artists the benchmark of musical comedy. Throughout the years he’s had many media ventures, including his eponymous television show and popular film UHF. With thirteen studio albums, eleven Grammy nominations, and countless film and music video cameos, Al is a part of culture that won’t be going away anytime soon.
