WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Weird Al Yankovic is the biggest selling comedy recording artist of all time. Few would have guessed that Yankovic, who as an awkward, accordion-playing teenager got his start sending in homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento Radio Show, would go on to enjoy a varied and successful career that is now entering its fourth decade. Over that time he has won 3 Grammys (with 12 nominations), racked up 31 Gold and Platinum Albums, and won countless awards and accolades for Weird Al classics like "Eat It," "Like a Surgeon," "Fat," "Smells Like Nirvana," "Amish Paradise" and more. Yankovic is also well-known for his cult-hit feature film UHF (1989), his late '90s CBS Saturday morning series The Weird Al Show and the numerous AL-TV specials that he's made for MTV and VH1 over the years. His previous album Straight Outta Lynwood (2006), the highest-charting of his career, spawned the Billboard Top 10 single "White & Nerdy," the video of which spent two months at #1 on iTunes and garnered over 100 million hits online. He is touring in support of his first full-length studio album in nearly five years entitled Alpocalypse.
