MBT's 2nd annual Rhythm & Rays summer event
Few would have guessed that "Weird Al" Yankovic, who as a shy, accordion-playing teenager got his start sending in homemade tapes to The Dr. Demento Radio Show, would go on to become the most popular comedy recording artist in history. Now firmly established as a beloved pop culture icon, Yankovic has won countless awards and accolades for Weird Al classics like “Eat It,” “Like a Surgeon,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Fat,” “The Saga Beings,” and “Amish Paradise.” He is also well-known for the cult-hit film UHF (1989), the late ‘90s television series The Weird Al Show, and the numerous AL-TV specials he has made for MTV and VH1.
Now in the fourth decade of his career, Yankovic has won 3 Grammy Awards (with 14 nominations) and has sold over 12 million albums, combining pop parodies with his own creations. Weird Al's album Straight Outta Lynwood (2006), spawned the Top 10 single "White & Nerdy," the video for which spent two months at #1 on iTunes and garnered over 100 million hits online. His most recent release, Alpocalypse, is the highest charting album of his career at #9 Billboard. In 2011 he added "bestselling NY Times author" to his resume (#4) with the release of his first children's book When I Grow Up; his second, My New Teacher and Me!, will be released June 25.
From the vinyl era to the digital age, from Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga, Weird Al continues to be as popular and funny as ever. Along with his band of thirty years, he has performed over 1,000 career concerts and continues to tour with his "rock and comedy multimedia extravaganza" throughout the world.
