The answer to the question who is the most successful artist in the history of Comedy music is a no-brainer. If you answered anything BUT “Weird” Al Yankovic, then you’ve been living under a pet rock for the last 35 years. Yes, 35 years. That’s how long it has been since Al first graced the airwaves of the Dr. Demento show with his parody of a Queen song; “Another One Rides the Bus”. Since then, “Weird” Al Yankovic has gone on to have a career in music that would make most “mainstream” artists blush.
Almost 13 Million Albums sold worldwide, 13 Grammy nominations including 3 wins, 1000′s of sold out shows and 6 platinum records in the US. Not too shabby for a guy who started with an accordion and a dream in 1976. Al has brought smiles and laughter to audiences of all ages with his spoofs on popular songs by music’s biggest names. Michael Jackson, Madonna, Dire Straights, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Lady Gaga – the list goes on and on and on. In fact Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain once said of Al’s parody of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” that while he hated the comedic version, he knew that the “weird” one doing his song meant he and his band had made it.
Now “Weird” Al Yankovic and his iconic catalogue of funny, hits the road. A mini tour of California and Nevada will set the table for a full world tour in 2012. With the final stop being at the historic Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles. If you wanna catch the laughs live we’ve got the best deals on Weird Al Yankovic tickets here on SaveFans!
