About Weird Al

Al Yankovic, otherwise known as “Weird Al," is one of the most successful musical satirist of our time. With his early hits, “Like a Surgeon," “Eat It," and “Amish Paradise," Al recreated the original songs’ music videos to great comedic effect, becoming a never-ending force in global pop culture. He’s earned four Grammy Awards with a total of 11 nominations, and released dozens of albums, including 2014’s Mandatory Fun, whose videos featured A-list comic talent and quickly went viral. Much like his music, Al keeps it light and funny on Twitter, posting funny happenstances he comes across daily.
